Vitamin B12 - the energy vitamin
Also known as ‘cobalamin’, it belongs to the group of so-called water-soluble vitamins and is an essential compound that is involved in a variety of vital processes in human metabolism. However, since it cannot be synthesised by the body itself, it must be obtained from food.
Why do we need vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 is vital to our physical and mental performance. If there is a lack of vitamin B12, we may feel tired, weak and become more susceptible to infection.* Vitamin B12 is essential for natural cell regeneration as well as a healthy immune system. It also supports active energy metabolism, contributes to reduced fatigue and a healthy nervous system. An adequate daily supply is thus an essential requirement to have enough energy, performance, the ability to concentrate, as well as individual physical comfort.*
When is it essential to ensure there is an adequate supply?
High-risk groups are individuals who live a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle (vitamin B12 is most common in fish, meat, milk, and dairy products) as well as elderly people, who have issues absorbing vitamin B12 or suffer from gastrointestinal disorders that affect the metabolism of the nutrient. Medications like stomach acid blockers or heartburn remedies can also affect the vitamin supply. During particularly active times (stress, strain, and exhaustion) the body consumes additional energy. It is thus crucial to pay attention to the body’s own energy stores.
