Vitamin B12: Should I supplement?

Had this question last week

“I’ve been reading about vitamin B12 deficiency in women, should I supplement with this ?”

So I did a video here

In short:

✅ Vitamin B12 is mainly found in eggs, meat, dairy, and fish. You can also get it from fortified cereal, nutritional yeast and supplements

✅ It is key for helping you – in short – get energy from your food / red blood cell production 

✅ A lack of can result in tiredness, headaches, poor mood, feeling weak , among others 

✅ A lack of Vitamin B12 is associated with an increased risks of cardiovascular issues and poor brain health 

✅ If you have anaemia / an autoimmune condition you may need injections due to the body’s inability to absorb (you’d need to check with your GP for this)

✅ Organic plant based dairy alternatives may not be fortified with the vitamins and minerals like calcium and vitamin B12 (check the label)

Hope this helps
