If you chose #3 above, Yay for you! B12 is necessary for your body’s normal synthesis of red blood cells. It’s also important for the maintenance of a healthy nervous system and is vital for the proper growth and development of children.
B12 is also important in maintaining the health of nerves in the human body. The nerves in the nervous system contain an insulating fatty covering comprised of a complex protein called myelin. B12 plays a vital role in the metabolism of fatty acids essential for the maintenance of this nerve covering.
Are you someone who doesn’t like meat? B12 supplementation is crucial if you are a vegetarian. The American Dietetic Association has stated that vegetarians are at risk of vitamin B12 deficiency and highly recommend supplementing their diets with B12.
Symptoms of a B12 deficiency include: lack of energy, shortness of breath, anemia, and poor resistance to infections. In females, menstrual disorders can occur.
