Did you know that every cell in your body uses B-12 to metabolize? Did you also know that your body is incapable of producing this vital substance? It is found in meat, fish, dairy products, and supplements. Vegan and vegetarian members of society are more likely to have a Vitamin B-12 deficiency, as plant sources are extremely rare. However, even if you eat meat, there’s a chance you aren’t getting enough in your diet.
The symptoms of Vitamin B-12 deficiency are various, and some are potentially extreme and irreversible. If you’re experiencing any of the following, a B-12 supplement could help you:
- Chronic fatigue
- Poor memory
- Chronic headaches
- Loss of appetite
- Poor balance
- Numbness or tingling in extremities.
These are symptomatic of only a minor deficiency! At extremely low levels, a B12 deficiency can cause symptoms associated with mania and psychosis, as well.
There are approved medical uses of Vitamin B12; it can be used to counteract cyanide poisoning, and is given as part of a test to detect pernicious anemia.
What does Vitamin B12 do for your body?
Vitamin B12 – also called “cobalamin” – is required for the body to properly form red blood cells, and is a factor in neurological function, as well as the synthesis of your DNA.
Cobalamin forms the myelin sheath, the protective covering of your nerves. That means that B12 is protecting or assisting all of your cognitive function, from memory to imagination.
As a dietary supplement, Vitamin B12 is highly recommended. While you can get some of your recommended daily value from fortified cereals or animal foods with high B12 content, a supplement is a valuable addition to a healthy lifestyle.
