B12

What is Vitamin B12?

This water-soluble vitamin keeps your nerves and red blood cells healthy.

You can develop a vitamin B12 deficiency. The main symptom of B12 deficiency is fatigue.

Who needs it?  
Vegetarians, smokers, drinkers, pregnant and breast-feeding women, and the elderly may require vitamin B12 supplements. Sometimes our body, mainly our digestive system, is not able to absorb this vitamin well. This can happen when a person has pernicious anaemia, celiac disease, Crohn's disease, bacteria growth in the small intestine, or a parasite. People suffering from these conditions may need vitamin B12 supplements as well.

 A deficiency in vitamin B12 can result in a host of illnesses like anaemia, fatigue, weakness, constipation, loss of appetite, weight loss, depression, poor memory, soreness of the mouth, asthma, vision problems, and a low sperm count. However, vitamin B12 deficiency is rare as the liver stores enough reserves to last a couple of years.

Benefits of vitamin B 12 are:

It is needed to convert carbohydrates into glucose in the body, thus leading to energy production and a decrease in fatigue and lethargy in the body.

It helps in healthy regulation of the nervous system, reducing depression, stress, and brain shrinkage.

It helps maintain a healthy digestive system. Vitamin B12 also protects against heart disease by curbing and improving unhealthy cholesterol levels, protecting against stroke, and high blood pressure.

It is essential for healthy skin, hair, and nails. It helps in cell reproduction and constant renewal of the skin.
