B 12-Powerhouse Micro Nutrient

Vitamin B12 is known as the energy vitamin. It has a significant impact on your health and affects every aspect of the way your system functions.
Recent studies show that one in four adults in the United States are deficient in vitamin B12 and nearly half the population has sub-optimal amounts in their blood. This can happen because of lack of the vitamin in your diet or through your inability to absorb the vitamin from the food you eat.
Deficiency can be hard to detect, especially considering how common the symptoms of a vitamin B12 deficiency can be, such as feeling tired or unfocused. Because of its wide-reaching roles within the body, a deficiency can show up in different symptoms, many of which are very noticeable while others are not. A slight deficiency of vitamin B-12 can lead to anemia, fatigue, mania, and depression, while a long term deficiency can cause permanent damage to the brain and central nervous system.
Chronic fatigue , mood disorders like depression and chronic stress or feeling run down could indicate that you´re deficient in vitamin B12. So does muscle weakness, lack of energy, tingling in the extremie-ties, mental fogginess, memory problems, mood swings and feeling of apathy and lack of motivation. On the other hand vitamin B12 deficiency can go hidden and may not show itself for a number of years despite the fact that it indeed is present.
Food sources
Animal foods are the best food sources of vitamin B12, including organic grass-fed dairy products, cage-free eggs, grass-fed meat, wild-caught fish, organic poultry and organ meats. Liver is an excellent source of well absorbable vitamin B12.
