Vitamin B-12 Deficiency and Health BenefitsVitamin B-12 is very important to your overall health, it helps maintain normal brain and nervous system functions. A B-12 deficiency can be caused by anemia, gastritis, Crohn’s Disease, Celiac Disease, Lupus and other Auto-Immune Diseases. You get most of your B-12 in meats and dairy products. If you follow a vegan diet you may be B-12 deficient. Symptoms of a Vitamin B-12 deficiency are

  • Afternoon Exhaustion and Fatigue
  • Memory Issues
  • Weakness, Tired Body, Muscle Fatigue
  • Blurred-Spotty Vision

If you have many of these symptoms, you should contact your doctor. You will receive blood tests to properly diagnose a deficiency and receive proper vitamin dosage. If you go with this deficiency for too long you can develop nerve damage so getting your mind and body in check is important.
