Vitamin B12 Info

Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is a crystalline compound that is bright red due to its high cobalt content. Its key roles are in red blood cell and nervous system health.

It was first identified as the nutrient needed to treat pernicious anemia, a condition in which the gastric mucosa lacks a protein called intrinsic factor, needed to absorb vitamin B12 in the ileum. As vitamin B12 is needed for red blood cell formation, a deficiency due to malabsorption results in a form of anemia.

The most abundant and readily absorbed sources of Vitamin B12 are animal foods. Vegetarians and vegans may be more at risk of becoming vitamin B12 deficient, and as we age the body’s ability to absorb B-12 from food sources decreases as well.

Vitamin B12 Benefits

Signs of vitamin B12 deficiency are in symptoms of nervous system impairment such as numbness and tingling, pins and needles or a burning sensation. Deficiency is more common in elderly people and can show as anemia, diarrhoea and a beefy red tongue. Impaired mental function in the elderly may respond well to vitamin B12 supplementation.

People with asthma and eczema may need vitamin B12, and addressing a deficiency may also bring improvements in sleep quality, alertness and concentration.

Vitamin B12 Side Effects

Safe when taken as directed.

Vitamin B12 is best taken in conjunction with a B complex supplement, as all the B group vitamins need to be present in the correct ratio for optimal effect.

  • Levels Increased

    star

    Bought these drops for my husband after his GP told him his B12 was very low. He has since had a further blood test which showed his B12 levels had increased and he had only been taking the drops for two weeks at that stage. The drops are both easy and pleasant to take, therefore I would give a positive recommendation.

  • B12 Oral drops review

    star

    I chose these after being recommended them and find them pleasant-tasting and easy to take. I feel a lot better with a variety of supplements and a change of diet so not sure if it's the B12 or a combination of all the changes.
