What is Vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient which promotes nerve and blood cell health. Vitamin B12 is known as an ‘extrinsic factor’ which means it can not be produced by our bodies and must be obtained from outside sources. These typically include food such as meat, fish, eggs and milk. Therefore, you are likely to have a deficiency if you are vegan, don’t eat enough B12 rich food, or if you have other health conditions which mean you are unable to absorb it properly, such as pernicious anaemia.
However, research indicates that most people, irrespective of dietary preferences, do not consume the recommended daily amounts of this key vitamin. Given the importance of vitamin B12 for healthy body function, supplementation can be an excellent way to increase your intake of it beyond food sources.
