Vitamin B-12


Vitamin B-12 (cobalamin), is essentially used to treat healthy red blood cell formation, increase metabolism and energy, improve cognition, and assist in the proper breakdown of nutrients in foods (Mayo Clinic 2024). There are several foods that contain this essential vitamin to promote wellness. These include foods that are rich in protein, such as meat, poultry, seafood, eggs, fruit, fiber rich cereals, and dairy products such as milk, butter, cheese, and yogurt. B-12 is a supplement that can be taken orally, intravenously, or by intranasal administration.

Individuals who do not have adequate amounts of this vitamin can experience serious health concerns such as anemia, extreme fatigue, distorted emotional health, poor gastrointestinal health, and neuropathy (Mayo Clinic, 2024).

Research has shown that Vitamin B-12 has been proven to promote weight loss, decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease, improve cognition, and improve physical activity (Mayo Clinic, 2024). This vitamin has also been beneficial to help individuals who lack significant amounts of protein, and those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

The following medications have been linked to negative interactions with Vitamin B-12. Paser, Colchicine, Metformin, Prilosec, and Vitamin C.

Proper monitoring of Vitamin B-12 levels is essential for continuous improvement of overall health and wellness.
