Are you getting enough vitamin B12 in your diet? Signs of deficiency may include:
~ fatigue and weakness
~ memory loss or forgetfulness
~ inability to concentrate
~ tingling (numbness) in the hands or feet
Vitamin B12 is necessary for the formation of red blood cells and supports the nervous system. It’s naturally found in animal proteins, including eggs and dairy.
Individuals who consume very little animal foods, particularly strict vegetarians and vegans, need to supplement their diet with B12.
Certain processed foods, such as cereal, may be fortified with B12.
Some fermented foods, such as tempeh and miso, may contain small amounts of vitamin B12 depending on how they are fermented. Nutritional yeast is also a vegan-friendly source of B12.
