Things You Didn’t Know About Vitamin B12

The health benefits of vitamin B12 are endless, with its immune system benefits hard to ignore. It’s an essential vitamin that your body needs but cannot produce on its own. It’s found only in animal products but is also available for consumption as a supplement or injection for those who may not be getting enough. Although it’s mainly known for supporting healthy bodily functions, vitamin B12 has many other science-based benefits that may surprise you.

Energy Boost and Weight Loss
It’s a well-known fact that vitamin B12 supplements can provide a good source of energy, although they don’t produce the energy themselves. It helps by turning the food you eat into glucose, which in turn gives your body energy to complete its normal daily functions. This process is also beneficial for helping you to lose weight, as it speeds up the breakdown of fats and proteins.

Prevents Anaemia
Vitamin B12 is vital for your body to produce red blood cells. If you are vitamin B12 deficient, your body begins to struggle producing these properly and you start to develop symptoms of fatigue and weakness as your blood can’t transport enough oxygen to your vital organs. In severe cases, this can cause megaloblastic anaemia. Topping up levels of B12 will help prevent this and keep your body functioning healthily.

Healthy Pregnancy
Good vitamin B12 levels are essential for a healthy pregnancy. A new study found that women with vitamin B12 deficiency were up to five times more likely to give birth to a child with birth defects such as spina bifida than those with adequate levels. B12 can also lower the chances of miscarrying and premature birth.

Boosts Mood
Although the effects on mood are not yet fully understood, there’s evidence to show that vitamin B12 helps stimulate the production of serotonin – the chemical that’s responsible for making you happy. Patients that experience symptoms of depression are often tested for vitamin B12 deficiency and are told to take supplements before trying out anti-depressants.

Healthy Skin, Hair and Nails
For those that are vitamin B12 deficient, taking supplements can majorly improve skin pigmentation, as well as strengthening hair and nails, because of its ability to stimulate new cell production.
