Feeling fatigued? Exhausted all the time no matter how much sleep you get? If you can relate to any of these symptoms, you may be lacking in a very important vitamin: B12.

Signs You Don’t Have Enough B12

Aside from fatigue, B12 deficiency can cause:

  • Anemia
  • Weakness
  • Constipation
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Depression
  • Poor memory
  • Mouth Sores
  • Asthma
  • Vision problems
  • Reproductive difficulty in men

B12 Gives Your Body a Boost

B12 is necessary for your body to convert the carbs you eat into energy, so if you don’t have enough, you won’t have enough energy. B12 also helps to relieve stress, keep your nerves functioning properly, and balance your mood. It also protects your brain from shrinkage, a condition that occurs as a result of poor nutrition, aging, and some health conditions.

This essential nutrient also protects your heart against coronary artery disease, heart attack, and stroke  by lowering cholesterol levels. Additionally, B12 helps protect you from developing certain cancers, including colon, lung, breast, and prostate cancers.

When You Need a B12 Boost

B12 deficiency can strike anyone. However, people that are vegetarians, smokers and heavy drinkers, and the elderly are often deficient in B12. Some medical conditions can also interfere with B12 absorption. If you’ve been found to be lacking this vital vitamin, you can take a B12 supplement or you can do B12 injections.
