Eating is a primal nourishing act that connects us to the world around us. By the very process of taking in food, we transform the external environment into our internal environment.

B-12 normally combines and forms a strong complex with a glycoprotein called Intrinsic Factor (IF) when it travels through the stomach. If there is inadequate B-12 intake, or inadequate IF produced by specialized cells of the stomach, a deficiency of the B-12 will result. B-12 not bound to Intrinsic Factor is highly susceptible to degradation by digestive enzymes as it travels through the intestine.
