Vitamin B12 uses

 

Vitamin B12 deficiency

 

The main use of vitamin B12 supplements is to prevent or treat vitamin B12 deficiency, which is a condition that occurs when levels of this particular vitamin in the blood are too low. This form of treatment is known as vitamin B12 replacement and is often recommended if pernicious anaemia or problems with absorption are the underlying cause of the deficiency. Deficiency can also be caused by a lack of vitamin B12 intake from food sources. Vegetarians and vegans are most likely at risk from this form of vitamin B12 deficiency, as food sources include meat, poultry, and seafood and animal products like milk, cheese and eggs.
