The absorption and transport of vitamin B12 in the body is a very complex process, in the digestive process it must be released by the action of protease enzymes and the lower the production of stomach acid, the greater the chances of suffering from low levels, therefore that the older the age, the greater the probability of suffering from deficiency.
It has also been found that some medications and especially the so-called proton pump inhibitors or gastric protectors as they are commonly known, produce a drastic reduction in the absorption of the vitamin.
