隨著世界吃素(環保素、倫理素、宗教素、part-time vegetarian)風潮,吃素食會有健康問題的大反轉,是否可能從過去的病症化變成現在的療效化?其實兩者皆存在。那麼關於B-12的缺乏,現有哪些研究? (跟「排毒」是不同的哲學)

現在有科學研究證據(但請大家主義,科學知識不等於真理,因為科學知識每二十年都會差非常地多,真正的科學知識是指根據可以接受的科學方法得出來的暫時性結論,而非不容挑戰的真理)的只有一些。很多網路上流傳的謠言都很有趣,可惜都沒有標明出處與作者,無從考證。

原來吃素可以治療類風濕性關節炎(Rheumatoid Arthritis)

多服用 B-complex(維他命B群)有可能可以改善背痛

Homocysteine (同半胱胺酸) 是胺基酸 methionine的代謝物。methionine 主要來源是肉類。Homocysteine 過高會造成心血管疾病,即使你體重正常也不抽煙。

Homocysteine 會影響血管壁,與體內某些蛋白質結合影響結構與功能。 Homocysteine 影響的主要組織有軟骨、彈力蛋白、proteolgycans,會減弱或抑制組織的修復與維護。與 Homocysteine有關的疾病有 有不孕症、腦神經(中風、帕金森氏症、多發性硬化症)、憂鬱症。

Homocysteine 可以由底下的維他命B群控制 B6(pyridoxal-5-phosphate, P5P), B12(methylcobalamin, MB12),  葉酸 (Folic acid, also called folate or folacin) and betaine(trimethylglycine, TMG 甜菜鹼)。

值得注意的是一般較便宜的維他命B群並不含可直接利用的 P5P & MB12。一般B6是用 Pyridoxine,B12 是用 Cyanocobalamin,對某些人效果比較不好。
