Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause a wide range of symptoms. These usually develop gradually but can worsen if the condition goes untreated. They include:
- Extreme tiredness (fatigue)
- Lack of energy (lethargy)
- Feeling faint
- Pale skin
- Noticeable heartbeats (palpitations)
- Loss of appetite and weight loss
If symptoms are extreme or worsen we advise you to see your GP for a blood test.
B12 has been popular among athletes for many years for its natural energy boosting effects but more recently there has been more awareness as to what more B12 can help with.
Veganism is more common in todays society & with B12 normally being obtained from liver, milk, eggs, fish, oysters & clams a B12 injection is an alternative method of ensuring your body still receives these essential vitamins.
B12 can help boost low energy levels & mood during illness. The immune system is strengthened with B12 and the effects can be especially noticeable when going through stressful & anxious periods.
