Solving Your Vitamin B12 Deficiency

Solving Your Vitamin B12 Deficiency

If there is one vitamin that behaves almost like a “super-vitamin,” it is Vitamin B. It impacts our hair, skin, digestion, memory, energy level, and mood. Vitamin B12 is critical to helping your body produce DNA and red blood cells also supports your immune and nervous systems. It is more difficult to get through diet because it is only found naturally in animal sources. This makes it difficult for vegans and people who cannot or don’t want to eat a diet rich in animal products.

A deficiency in B12 can lead to adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalance, and issues with the nervous and cardiovascular systems. B12 deficiency is a leading issue in less developed countries, but it is also a cause for concern in the US.

Symptoms of Vitamin B Deficiency

Because many of the symptoms of B12 deficiency are common, like fatigue, it is sometimes difficult to diagnose. Screening can be difficult. The common symptoms to watch for are:

  • Dizziness
  • Heart palpitations
  • Respiratory problems
  • Memory loss or difficulty
  • Constantly feeling tired or chronic fatigue
  • Muscle and joint aches and pain aches and weakness
  • Lack of focus
  • Mood swings and depression
  • Loss of appetite
  • Digestive tract issues

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms it may be caused by a Vitamin B deficiency. There are steps you can take to make up for your deficiency.

Getting Enough Vitamin B

Changing your diet can help you solve a Vitamin B deficiency. Great sources of B are fish, shellfish, poultry, cheese, milk, eggs, and some soy based substitutes. As stated earlier, B12 is only found naturally in animal sources, which is a real challenge for vegans or those who don’t eat a lot of animal products.

People who have digestive issues with dairy also struggle to get enough B12 through their diet, and those with digestive issues like celiac disease also struggle.
