Vitamin B12 is one of those vitamins you hear a lot of, but might not be sure what all the fuss is about…
It helps make DNA, and is critical for the nerve fibers in the brain and spinal cord.
So, yeah, it’s a pretty big deal. And according to research, 40% of the population has vitamin B12 deficiency.
Signs of deficiency can range from loss of energy and blurred vision, to fuzzy memory and sharp mood swings.
According to the VegHealth Institute, it was easy for our ancestors to get B12 from water and food. However, these days we have to go the extra mile to get it.
There are a few ways you can get this vitamin in your diet, including:
- Fortified foods like cereal and rice milk
- B-12 supplements
Today, you may want to look into adopting one or both of these things into your diet.
Your health might just depend on it.
