What you probably don’t know about Vitamin B12- Markus Rothkranz
Many people are told they’re low in vitamin B12 within their bodies. This information comes from a society that is fear based. Serum B12 levels do not reflect true B12 levels since most vitamin B12 is stored in the liver and is not shown in the blood. It’s the same with a thyroid test. When you’re nervous taking the blood test, you’re nervous, so your thyroid levels rise and then go back down when you’re not nervous. Vitamin B12 is pretty much bacteria poop. Everything now is so washed and sterilized, and we eat so much processed dead foods, that there’s no B12 left in them. Half of meat eaters even don’t have enough B12 in their bodies, although meat eaters tend to have more B12 than vegetarians. When meat is killed, it starts rotting. The bacteria in your gut also makes its own B12 in your body, which stays in your body for years.
If your B12 levels are low, the questions should be, what should I stop doing that’s causing this problem in the first place. The first place to look is your stomach. If stomach acid is too low, it cannot absorb the B12. Even raw foodists tend to eat too much sugar which harms the body and stomach acid levels. You need strong stomach acid for the body to work right and for B12 to absorb. You need to cut out sugar, bread, and carbs and start eating more bitter things such as apple cider vinegar and lemon juice. Sea salt, zinc, bitter greens like arugula also help increase stomach acid levels and B12 absorption. Another thing that lowers stomach acid is adrenal gland burnout from stress, coffee and energy drinks. Strengthen the adrenal grand with herbs like licorice root, astragulus, and nettle leaf. Simply taking a pill isn’t going to make you better if you don’t stop what’s causing the problem in the first place. Get rid of the cause so you get on the right road to good health.

Sugar & Refined Carbs Almost Killed Me, but I was Thin and No Diabetes
Controversy surrounds the topic of eating carbohydrates and this is very unfortunate. A little research into what carbs do and which ones are bad for you would eliminate a lot of the controversies. Performing some research also reveals why refined sugars and carbs are best avoided. In a passionate YouTube video, Markus Rothkranz talks about how sugar and refined carbs almost caused him major health disasters. Rothkranz is quick to point out sugar has its defenders – mainly because sugar is wildly addictive and people have a hard time giving it up.
He reveals he ate a lot of refined sugars in his life and never was obese. So he assumed he wasn’t going to deal with a lot of problems. In retrospect, he learned that his absolute lack of animal products in his diet kept him thin. Rothkranz ate an enormous amount of carbohydrates. A lot of those carbs were of the terrible variety. Since animal fat wasn’t helping his body absorb the sugar and turn it into stored fat, he looked okay.
Rothkrantz did note he ended up with cysts on his body due to his diet intake. Other illnesses including ones associated with the lungs were constantly plaguing him.
Rothkrantz found that sugar problems take many forms. Obesity is only one problem. The excess sugar he ingested — combined with dairy and yeast — ended up causing a number of avoidable health issues for him that he could have otherwise avoided.
The low carb diet fad has a tendency to appear, disappear, and reappear again and again. Low carb diets work, but they become absorbed into mass market fads leading them to disappear once the fad runs its course. The main drawback with these types of diets is not that they lead to weight loss, but they lead people to assume weight loss is the only benefit to a diet. So, a thin person who eats lots of carbs — and little fat — may think he/she has nothing to worry about. After all, weight loss is the main goal and not healthy living. Such an assessment is woefully wrong and leads to the improper overconsumption of refined sugar.
The Power of Intermittent Fasting
The missing link to weight loss is intermittent fasting. This could change your life and there is no money involved, just don’t eat for 16 hours and eat for 8 hours, so there is no worrying to starving your body. This one change in life can be a massive difference. A radical difference for those who are trying to lose weight because of any excess weight on their body, increases HGH levels or human growth hormones, testosterone production, burns fat, will increase the mind’s clarity and improve sleep quality and dreams. Intermittent fasting will also help with decreasing food cravings, improve insulin levels and can help reverse type II diabetes. Also, fasting will help blood pressure, cholesterol, pancreatic function, and mitochondrial function.
Breakfast is defined breaking fast after sleep. Sleep should mean empty stomachs. After waking up remember, you should not be eating until noon; not even juice; focus on water, tea, or coffee. Energy is normally from food and lasts between four or five hours, then the body will use glycogen, and then fat. During the four to five hours, if the body is exercising, the body will focus on that four or five hours. Fat will never get burned unless there is nothing else. Depending on what your energy is being used for, depends on how glycogen is actually being used; either through sitting at a desk all day or exercising for a few hours at the gym. Fat is the most efficient use of energy. If you want to actually look good in the morning, exercise in the morning on an empty stomach. During a Cornell study, a 24-hour fast showed that the body burned fat and not protein. People have noticed if they have had one day in the week where they fasted, at the beginning of the next Monday energy levels doubled. Markus Rothkranz advice is to fast for 16 hours and to eat for 8 hours; Noon to 8pm or 11:00am to 7pm. Muscles will not be lost and the feelings of being tired won’t happen, instead, clarity happens.
Standing vs Sitting: Sitting is the New Smoking
As you can see in the video, you’ll find that sitting really is the new smoking. Sitting all day long every day, sometimes for up to fifteen hours, is what makes us sick, and it ruins our chances of having a healthy life expectancy.
In case you didn’t know, in third world countries people don’t sit all day long. And in Westernized countries, like Germany and the U.S., people are starting to get the hint and to specialize in standing while working, or to take time away from their desks and walk around or do squats. You can do these things, too.
You’ll appreciate that if you step away from your desk for about five minutes every thirty, to do squats or simply to jog around the block, you’ll feel better, and a lot of things will improve with your physical health, too. You’ll love that your stomach will get smaller, and your circulation will definitely improve.
As you can see from this video, sitting isn’t natural for humans, and we tend to sit a lot more than other people in the West. If you think about it, one natural remedy is a standing desk. You can also do as Markus has done and put a treadmill or a bicycle in front of your desk so you can exercise while you work.
If you’re still not convinced, look at some of the articles about what sitting can do to your body. And be sure that you’re prepared to defend this after that. Otherwise, think about getting out more, and definitely take a break to stand up every now and then.
