One of the biggest problems with low levels of vitamin B12 is that the symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency go unnoticed. Many times, a lack of vitamin B12 is simply written off as normal signs of aging.
Vitamin B12 Deficiency Symptoms:
- Mental confusion
- “Pins and needles” in the extremities
- Balance issues
These symptoms occur because the body is not creating enough red blood cells which are required to carry oxygen to all the cells in the body. When that process is inhibited, the body is literally being starved of the oxygen it needs to build and regenerate. Vitamin B12 is crucial to the healthy functioning of the mind and body and nearly 40% of all adults have low levels of vitamin B12.
