There’s a reason your body can’t get enough of it.
Vitamin B12—we hear about how essential it is for our health and how deficiency can be harmful, but what is it exactly and why is it so important?The Science
According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services NIH (National Institutes of Health):
Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy and helps make DNA, the genetic material in all cells. Vitamin B12 also helps prevent a type of anemia called megaloblastic anemia that makes people tired and weak.
And as Healthline reports, in addition to cell formation and energy boosting qualities, Vitamin B12 has even more science-based health benefits including:
- Supporting bone health and preventing osteoporosis
- Eye health and reducing macular degeneration
- Uplifting mood and symptoms of depression
- Improving memory loss
- Promoting healthy hair, skin and nails
How we Get Vitamin B12
While Vitamin B12 is primarily delivered through food, including animal products (fish, meat, poultry, eggs) and dairy products, many of us do not get enough Vitamin B12 to maintain optimal health. Yet Vitamin B12 has no toxicity, so it’s almost impossible to take too much of it.
Here are some situations where you should consider increasing your intake:
Besides a basic funk, low energy typically fuels poor concentration and memory retention.
> You’re vegetarian or vegan
As Vitamin B12 is found in animal and dairy products, strict vegetarian or vegan diets typically means you’re not getting enough of it. (Note that carnivores are not out of the woods either.)
> You’re Vitamin B12 deficient
This is often the case in people with gastrointestinal disorders, including Crohn’s or celiac disease. Also, some adults over 50 are not able to absorb Vitamin B12 from food.
> You want to boost your health
We can always use strong red blood cells, more energy, better mental focus and improved oxygen circulation.
