Vitamin B 12 Deficiency

Our body needs very little vitamin B12 or cobalamine, and most of us take the normal amount of meals we need to meet our daily needs. The symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency are rare, but it may be useful to recognize them.

The most vulnerable to vitamin B12 deficiency are vegans that do not take the current supplements containing vitamin B12.

Babies fed a vegan mother’s milk are also at risk. Vitamin B12 supplements are generally considered safe because overdose has little known effect.

The main symptoms caused by B12 deficiency are anemia, which makes you feel tired, weak and lethargic. It can also cause nausea, constipation, loss of appetite, weight loss, and excessive bloating (gas).

The More Severe Symptoms of Vitamin B12 Deficiency are:

  • Numbness or tingling in hands and feet
  • Insomnia
  • Loss of memory
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of balance
  • Depression
  • Digestive problems
  • Dizziness
  • Liver growth
  • Eye problems
  • Headache
  • hallucinations
  • Inflammatory language
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Loss of memory
  • Palpitation
  • Neurological damage
  • Ringing in ears

Vitamin B12 is often found in animal products such as eggs, milk, fish, meat and animal organs.

B12 is rarely found in vegetables. For this reason, vegetarians, especially dairy and meat-free vegans, are at higher risk.

If you are entering this category, you should consider using vitamin supplements that contain vitamin B12.

It is also important to be aware that vitamin B12 works due to the amount of other vitamins present in your body, so you should be well-balanced to prevent symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency.
