What is vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 is part of the B complex vitamins, which consists of eight individual vitamins. It is one of the most chemically complex of all the vitamins and is involved in hundreds of processes in the body. Primarily, vitamin B12 is required for the healthy metabolism of every cell in the body.
What is vitamin B12 for?
This essential vitamin is necessary for the production of healthy red blood cells and normal cell division. Vitamin B12 has also been shown to support neurological and psychological functions. For this reason, many people find that vitamin B12 supplements can help to regulate mood and boost energy levels.
Vitamin B12 has been shown to lower homocysteine levels. High homocysteine levels are a common precursor to heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Vitamin B12 supplements are popularly taken to support the function of the heart, circulatory system and cognitive function.
Am I getting enough vitamin B12?
A vitamin B12 deficiency can leave you feeling tired and sluggish. Vitamin B12 occurs naturally within animal-based food products, such as red meat and dairy. This supplement is ideally suited for those following vegetarian or vegan diets, who may struggle to obtain sufficient levels of vitamin B12 from diet alone.
As we age, the natural levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach reduce, which can make it harder for the body to absorb vitamin B12. For this reason, fortified foods and supplements are recommended for adults over the age of 50 years old.
