Vitamin B12 is necessary for your body.
Vitamin B12 is known to help the brain produce chemicals such as serotonin and dopamine, which regulate mood and anxiety.
When people don’t have enough B12 they experience
symptoms such as fatigue, mouth or tongue soreness, constipation and a loss of appetite.
A lack of Vitamin B12 may cause you to be confused, have poor memory or feel depressed.
Although certain cereals and breads are often fortified with B12, animal proteins are really the only natural sources.
Foods rich in B12 include liver, meat, eggs, poultry, shellfish, milk and milk products such as cheese and yogurt.
The stomach acid needed to absorb B12 declines with age, disease and behavior. Heavy drinking and even potassium supplements block absorption. So can heavy use of antacids.
Diseases such as celiac and Crohn’s may render people unable to absorb adequate amounts of B12 from food.
The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends 2.4 mcg of B12 daily from three ounces of beef or three cups of milk.
