Vitamin B12, or otherwise known as cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin naturally found in certain foods such as meat, fish, milk and eggs. It is needed to form red blood cells and DNA. It also plays an important role in the function of our brain and nerve cells as well as being involved with metabolism.

Vitamin B12 supplements can also be taken orally or via intramuscular injection.

What is Vitamin B12?



It is estimated that around 15% of the population has a vitamin B12 deficiency and many are unaware of it. B12 deficiencies are usually a result of diet, especially among vegans, this is because we can only get vitamin b12 through foods such as meat, fish and dairy products, our bodies do not produce it. If vitamin b12 levels aren’t maintained, you will eventually become deficient. Some people become B12 deficient due to other reasons such as a medical condition or alcohol misuse.

A blood test can sometimes detect a Vitamin B12 deficiency but isn’t always reliable and sometimes results can show normal B12 blood levels in people who are deficient. Mild deficiencies may not show any symptoms, however if left untreated, may lead to symptoms such as:

  • Fatigue, weakness or feeling lightheaded

  • Pale skin

  • Vision loss

  • Heart palpitations or shortness of breath

  • Mental problems such as depression, memory loss and mood changes
