In this video, Dr. Berg answers the question from someone that wanted to know what causes burning tongue. It is actually a B12 Deficiency. Anyone that has liver damage will going to have hard time absorbing B12.

B12 Deficiency:
• Low Stomach Acid
• Gastric Bypass (You don’t have the full capacity of the digestive system)
• IBS (Crohn’s and Inflammatory Problem of the Bowel)
• Vegan – add B12 in the form of Methylcobalamin (Natural Form)
• Anti-Acids
• Alcohol – Can deplete B12.

Foods high on B12:
• Eggs
• Animal Meats
• Dairy

Hey guys, I recently have a question from someone that wanted to know what causes burning tongue and this is the same with burning mouth or sore mouth. It is actually a B12 deficiency, now the question is how do you become B12 deficient? There are several ways that could happen, no. 1, Low Stomach Acid, Gastric Bypass and therefore you don’t have the full capacity of the digestive systems and you can’t absorb B12, some type of problems in your digestive system like IBS, or Crohn’s and Inflammatory Problem of the Bowel could do it as well, being a Vegan could do it as well because most of the B12 comes from either eggs, animals meats or animal organs, dairy so if you’re a vegan you might want to add B12 in the form of Methylcobalamin, this is the Natural Form do not get the cyanocobalamin, and drinking Alcohol can deplete B12, that’s why alcoholics are actually deficient in B12. For that matter anyone that has liver damage could have a hard time absorbing B12. Alright? There you have it. Thanks for watching!
