What Is B12?

Vitamin B12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin that plays a role in many bodily functions, including:

  • DNA production

  • red blood cells

  • nerve cells

Without vitamin B12, a person may start to feel tired and weak due to megaloblastic anemia.

Vitamin B12 is present in:

  • meat

  • fish

  • eggs

  • dairy products

  • nutritional yeast

  • some fortified foods

In animal-based foods, vitamin B12 binds to the protein molecules. During digestion, stomach acid causes it to separate from the protein, and a substance called intrinsic factor enables the bloodstream to absorb it.

Some people’s bodies do not produce enough stomach acid or intrinsic factor if they have a condition known as autoimmune atrophic gastritis. These people may need vitamin B12 shots to reduce their risk of deficiency, which can lead to many problems!

Other people who may needs shots include those who have had gastrointestinal surgery if their digestive system cannot absorb vitamin B12 efficiently.
