WHY VITAMIN B12 IS SO IMPORTANT

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin. Everyone needs it to stay healthy. Vitamin B12 helps your body work properly. It protects your nerve cells so they can grow the right way. Vitamin B12 also helps make red blood cells, which give oxygen to the tissues in your body.

THERE ARE MANY CAUSES FOR VITAMIN B12 DEFICIENCY

A low amount of vitamin B12 in the body could be due to dietary restrictions, a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, medical conditions that affect the digestive system, or proton pump inhibitors to treat acid reflux. Vitamin B12 deficiency could also be caused by a health condition, such as Crohn's disease, multiple sclerosis, celiac disease, or HIV/AIDS.
