B12: The Vitamin you can Eat, Drink, or Wear

28 September 2017 | Jillian Cheong

Often being overshadowed by the commercialized Vitamin C, B12 is usually not on the top of the list of essential vitamins. This is the reason that it is one of the leading nutrient deficiencies in the world.

Unlike other vitamins, B12 is actually water-soluble which means that it dissolves in water and is absorbed into your bloodstream. Our body needs this nutrient as it plays an important role in helping our brain and nervous system function properly. If we lack Vitamin B12 in our system, the results can be potentially damaging to our bodies. It can result in anemia, memory problems, fatigue as well as neurological changes. Thankfully, most dairy products and various kinds of meat have this vitamin. But, if you prefer an efficient way of getting your daily dose of B12, scroll down to read more about it!
