What is Vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 is a water soluble vitamin that is essential, meaning that it cannot be naturally produced by the human body, so it has to come from a dietary, or supplement form. It plays a vital role in a number of physiological functions within the human body, so optimal intakes per day are essential, and if they are achieved, there are actually a number of benefits to be enjoyed. However, a deficiency of vitamin B12, can result in a whole host of other problems and physical ailments in the process, including memory issues, fatigue, and anaemia. Vitamin B12 is commonly found in foods such as: eggs, fortified cereals, fish, and meat, especially red meat, and because of this, many vegans and vegetarians often struggle to get enough. The good news however, is that vitamin B12 is also available in a handy supplement form, making it easier than ever for individuals to ensure they’re getting enough B12 on a daily basis.

How does it work?

Vitamin B12 works in a number of ways, because it plays so many different roles within the human body. Its primary function however, is to be used for energy-producing purposes, as it aids in metabolism in a number of different ways. Vitamin B12 helps to strengthen and boost metabolic functions and processes within the body, allowing more energy to be produced naturally as a result. It plays a crucial role in the formation of red blood cells, which is why a deficiency of this nutrient can often result in anaemia. During DNA synthesis, the body actively requires an abundance of vitamin B12, especially for rapid synthesis purposes, including the formation of red blood cells within the nervous system, as well as our bone marrow. It also helps to strengthen and boost nerve cell function, as B12 has been found to increase myelin production. Myelin functions as a protective layer coating the outer membranes of nerve cells, insulating them and helping to enhance electrical impulse speeds between various nerve cells.

What are the benefits of using Vitamin B12 Supplements?

Some of the primary benefits of vitamin B12 supplements include:

More energy

As touched upon beforehand, vitamin B12 helps to boost the metabolism, which in turn leads to more energy being produced. Vitamin B12 then, can help to boost natural energy levels, helping to fight tiredness and fatigue, both physically and mentally.

Fat loss

Another surprising benefit of this vitamin however, is the fact that it can assist with fat loss. As it boosts the metabolism, more calories and stored body fat will be burnt off and converted into energy, so the quicker the metabolism, the more calories you will burn, and the harder it will become to gain weight.

Red blood cell information

Red blood cells are extremely vital when it comes to health and well-being, and a lack of these cells can result in anaemia. B12 however, has been proven to increase red blood cell formation and production, meaning this needn’t be an issue.

Other benefits include:

  • Stronger immune system
  • Fat loss
  • More energy
  • Improved mental health
  • Healthy nerve cells
  • Enhanced cognition
  • Increased red blood cell counts
  • And more...

How and when should it be consumed?

Health Canada Recommended Dose (capsules):Adults: 1 Capsule(s) 1 time(s) per day.

Vitamin B12 VS B6

There are many members of the vitamin B complex family, and though very similar, each one is still unique in its own right. Vitamin B6 for example, is based upon: pyridoxal, pyridoxine, and pyridoxamine, as opposed to B12, which is the only member of the B complex family to have a singular structure. Vitamin B6 also plays a key role in the synthesis of neurotransmitters, and can help enhance dopamine and serotonin productions.

What can it be stacked with?

For optimal results, it is best to stack vitamin B12 with other B complex vitamins, as well as, perhaps, a multi-vitamin, vitamin C, and an omega 3 supplement. This stack will provide maximum health and wellness benefits.
