Vitamin B12 is unique because it is the only vitamin that cannot be obtained from plants or sunlight. To obtain B12 from the diet you need to eat animal products - meat, fish or dairy products. Vegans and vegetarians are particularly prone to deficiency. However, many people can neither absorb nor use B12 because of issues in the complex absorption and metabolism of B12. 

Vitamin B12 contributes to normal

  • Energy yielding metabolism
  • Functioning of the nervous system
  • Red blood cell formation
  • Homocysteine metabolism
  • Psychological function
  • Functioning of the immune system

Vitamin B12 also plays a role in the process of cell division and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

There is no one particular symptom that suggests a B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 has so many functions, including the health of nerves, brain, blood and immune system, as well as the formation of DNA, B12 deficiency can impair functioning in almost any part of the body. Symptoms may depend on the age and genetic disposition of the individual, and also the length and severity of deficiency. 

People may be at an increased risk of B12 deficiency if they

  • Consume a vegan or strict vegetarian diet
  • Have eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia
  • Take antacids or diabetes related drugs that may interfere with B12 absorption
  • Have a history of alcoholism
