Why Take Vitamin B12?
The benefits of Vitamin B12 are numerous and a deficiency of this important vitamin can have serious consequences including, but not limited to, nerve damage, muscle weakness, fatigue, anemia, depression, failing memory, and stunted growth in children. B12 plays an important role in the formation and regeneration of the body’s red blood cells as well as the nerve functions. In addition, this crucial vitamin aids in the lowering of homocysteine levels. High homocysteine levels are linked to the risk for heart disease and lead to heart attacks. Vitamin B12 also acts as an oxygen carrier, metabolizes fat, enhances the body’s immune system, and aids in easing neurological disorders. Vegetarians often have a deficiency in B12 due to the fact that animal products contain the highest concentrations of B12.
How Much B12 Can I Take?
Vitamin B12 does not have any toxicity. Therefore, it is safe to take as much B12 as you like; any B12 that your body does not need is simply excreted through your urine.
