5 Incredible Benefits of B12

Most people aren’t severely deficient but would experience many benefits from taking a supplement to increase B12 levels. Check out these 5 reasons you should be taking a B12 supplement.

1. Boosts Mood

Vitamin B12 has been studied extensively and seems to reduce mood disorders, such as depression. People suffering from depression are often low in VitaminB12 and folate.  B12 assists with the production of neurotransmitters in conjunction with a compound called SAMe (S-Adenosylmethionine). This allows the body to breakdown several mood chemicals such as serotonin, melatonin, and dopamine. Without enough Vitamin B12, mental health conditions may arise.

2. Improves Memory and Neurological function

Vitamin B12 benefits also extend to memory and neurological function. Often those suffering from Alzheimer’s are treated with a B12 supplement. Deficiency can also make focusing difficult and increase the risk for attention disorders.

3. Healthy Skin and Hair

B12 is also well-known for its ability to strengthen hair and nails. It improves skin by reducing redness, dryness, inflammation and acne. It is often used as a treatment for psoriasis by applying it directly to the skin. Vitamin B12 also reduces hair breakage.

 4. Improves Energy Levels

Vitamin B12 helps convert carbohydrates into glucose the body can use. This benefits your metabolism because glucose is a form of energy. If you are experiencing fatigue, it may be due to a Vitamin B12 deficiency.

5. Helps With Heart Health

B Vitamins in combination with fish oil, if used daily, helps to reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Some studies suggest that it also helps reduce the risk of strokes in some people.
Many supplements, both men’s and women’s, contain Vitamin B12 and you should always consult your physician before starting a supplementation regimen.
