Chances are you’re B-12 deficient 1

Vitamin B-12 is a nutrient that is essential for life and healthy aging. It is required for metabolism, a process that encompasses all the physical and chemical processes in the body that convert or use energy. This includes breathing, blood circulation, muscle contraction, food digestion and brain/nerve function.3 Signs of low Vitamin B-12 levels include weakness, fatigue, motor disturbances and a range of behavioral changes including mood and personality.4 Therefore, supplementing with Vitamin B-12 may help support mental clarity, focus and energy. You could have a B-12 deficiency if you:1

• Are over age 50
• Follow a vegetarian or vegan diet
• Have had gastrointestinal disorders


Get the B-12 you need As science continues to show more and more ways that a lack of B-12 adversely affects our health, it becomes even more important that we use a supplement that effectively provides our bodies and our brains with the Vitamin B-12 they so desperately need.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warns healthcare providers to watch their patients for these signs of low Vitamin B-12 levels:4
• Fatigue
• Weakness
• Shortness of breath
• Pale skin
• Anemia
• Tingling of the hands and feet
• Hallucinations
It’s important to note that even if you have any of these signs, it does not necessarily mean that you have a B-12 deficiency. These signs could stem from many causes. However, it does mean that your healthcare provider might want to rule out B-12 deficiency as a possible culprit.
