B12 Health Benefits
- Boosts energy levels and reduces fatigue
- Helps in the formation of healthy red blood cells
- Supports heart health
- Supports nervous system and brain health
- Involved in the production of DNA, proteins and hormones
Vitamin B12 is one of the vitamins in the B family. Your body can’t make B12 on its own and you must get it either from foods or supplements. Animal based products like fish, eggs, beef and dairy are a good source of B12. It is also found in nutritional yeast and fortified cereals.
Vitamin B12 plays an important role in a range of functions. You need this vitamin to make healthy, fully matured red blood cells. It also helps in energy production. What’s more, DNA synthesis requires B12 as an essential co-factor. With such diverse roles to play across the body, it is obvious that vitamin B12 deficiency will result in a wide array of symptoms.
1. Energy production
Vitamin B12 is involved in energy metabolism.
- Helps the formation of the hemoglobin, a key protein in your red blood cells that carries oxygen to all your tissues and organs.
- Required for reactions that are involved in producing energy from fats and proteins that you eat.
2. Formation of DNA and red blood cells
- B12 and folic acid play an important role in DNA synthesis
- DNA is required for the production of new, healthy red blood cells
3. Healthy heart function
- Vitamin B12, along with B9 and B6, converts homocysteine into methionine
- Methionine, in turn, is a critical ingredient for methylation reactions, which are involved in the production of DNA, RNA, hormones, myelin and proteins.
4. Healthy brain and nervous system
- Helps with the formation of healthy myelin sheath, a fatty substance that covers the nerves and protects the nerve fibres from damage
- Helps in myelin regeneration
- Involved in the production of neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin and melatonin, that regulate mood, memory and sleep.
- Gets rid of excess homocysteine, an amino acid associated with cognitive decline and brain shrinkage
Do you have vitamin B12 deficiency?
The deficiency of B12 typically increases with age. Pregnant and breastfeeding women also need more vitamin B12. In addition, many health conditions and lifestyle factors may also put you at an increased risk for low B12 levels.
- A strictly vegetarian diet
- Inability to absorb B12, for example if you have Celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBS), pernicious anemia, diabetes, intestinal surgery and weight loss surgery
- Prolonged use of antibiotics, antacids, H2 blockers, proton pump inhibitors and Metformin (for diabetes)
- Excessive drinking and smoking
