We need Vitamin B-12 for metabolism—all the processes in the body that depend on energy. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), this includes such vital functions as breathing, circulating blood, digesting food and keeping our brain and nerves functioning.1
Naturally, you want to do all you can to keep your body’s storehouse of B-12 at a healthy level. But some people are more likely than others to suffer a Vitamin B-12 deficiency. You could have a B-12 deficiency if you:
- Are over age 50
- Follow a vegetarian or vegan diet
- Have had gastrointestinal surgery
- Have digestive disorders such as celiac or Crohn’s disease1
