Vitamin B12 contributes to a number of processes in the body. Feeling tired all the time? Memory not what it used to be? Struggling to complete physical tasks that you used to take easily in your stride?
All these are common complaints that can result from a myriad of different medical problems. But there is often just one cause that links them all – vitamin B12 deficiency.
Vitamin B12 is sourced from animal products such as meat, fish, milk and eggs. It is one of the water-soluble B vitamins which is bound to protein within food. However, it is difficult to absorb through the gut. This means you may be struggling to get enough through a healthy diet.
