What No One Tells You about Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is one of the most effective and safest nutrients. It is a water-soluble vitamin that plays a huge role in the normal functioning of the central nervous system and in the formation of red blood cells.

Humans aren’t capable of producing this vitamin so we need to intake it through foods like shellfish and meat and also through dietary supplements. Vitamin B12 is just one out of the 8 B-complex vitamins but what is so important about it that all of us should know?

Reduce Depression and Boosts Our Mood
Vitamin B12 plays a role in the production of chemicals for the brain that can affect our mood and other brain functions. Low levels of these Vitamin B-complexes can be a cause of depression.

Having a poor diet and not taking the proper dosage of these vitamins will lead you to a deficiency that can lead to a serious disease in digestion and in brain function. Taking supplements and eating foods that are rich in B12 are important to help stimulate and improve mental work.

Prevent Anemia
As mentioned, Vitamin B12 helps in the formation of red blood cells. Anemia is a condition in the body that can make you feel weak and tired, also this will make you look pale. B12 deficiency can lead to pernicious anemia that makes your body destroy all the cells in your stomach. Having a blood test can help with a more accurate diagnosis of the disease. Pernicious anemia most often affects older adults. It is more common among people in Scandinavia too.

Increase and support rate in metabolism
Vitamin B12 is involved in all the metabolic processes that undergo in our body. With the boost of the metabolism rate, weight loss can be faster. Boosting your metabolism can help you burn more calories effortlessly since metabolism converts food to energy through chemical processes. Having the proper dosage of the B12 vitamins helps you lose weight and at the same time, your energy is increased so you don’t feel tired easily.
