Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) is a water-soluble vitamin that belongs to B group vitamins, whose functions are crucial for the body.

B12 is required for correct energy metabolism function and for nervous system function. Its optimal intake contributes to reduce weariness and fatigue and to improve memory.

Sources of vitamin B12 are meat, fish, eggs and dairy products, while it is not present in plant-based foodstuffs. In fact, vegetarians and vegans are two population groups that present a high risk of B12 deficiency.

Supplementation with this vitamin can improve cognitive function and have beneficial effects in some depressive syndromes.

Combined with vitamin B6 and folic acid, B12 has a protective action on the cardiovascular system because it can reduce dangerously high levels of homocysteine.

Insights

Vitamin B12 deficiency is a serious health issue that can cause megaloblastic anaemia, inhibition of cellular division and neurological disorders.

The fact that vitamin B12 is only present in foodstuffs derived from animals increases the probability of developing its deficiency, especially for vegans and, to a lesser degree, for vegetarians.

Pregnant women who have low levels of vitamin B12 run the risk of having children with neural tube defects, and children breast-fed by mothers with vitamin B12 deficiency can develop general weakness, anaemia and other neurological problems.

Even elderly subjects constitute a group at risk of developing B12 deficiency, which is often caused by age-related gastric atrophy.

Oral administration of vitamin B12 is equivalent to intramuscular administration; therefore, it can be a reasonable choice to increase its stores in the body.
