Image via Wikipedia Continuous spike-wave in slow wave sleep syndrome (CSWS) is a rare epilepsy syndrome in which children lose a wide range of developmental abilities, including language, motor skills, memory, and visuospatial skills. This syndrome occurs in school-aged children. Development prior to onset of CSWS may be normal, but children with CSWS often have some pre-existing learning difficulties. In many children there is no known cause of epilepsy, although some children are found to have abnormal brain formation or have a prior history of brain infection.

Like all vitamins, B12 is an organic compound, made from carbons (as opposed to minerals, which are inorganic), and essential for our normal metabolic function and health. Also, like most vitamins, B12 plays a wide variety of roles in our metabolism. The short list of important effects B12 has on your health includes these: Vitamin B12 is essential for the manufacture of red blood cells; a deficiency leads to a cha…
