Vitamin B Complex

B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin, Nicotinic Acid, Niacinamide), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B6 (Pyridoxine), B12 (Cyanocobalamin), Biotin, Folate

Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin)

Vitamin B12 is needed to prevent anemia.  It aids folic acid in regulating the formation of red blood cells, and helps in the utilization of iron.  This vitamin is also required for proper digestion, absorption of foods, the synthesis of protein, and the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats.  It aids in cell formation and cellular longevity.  In addition, vitamin B12 prevents nerve damage, maintains fertility, and promotes normal growth and development by maintaining the fatty sheaths that cover and protect nerve endings.  Vitamin B12 is linked to the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that assists memory and learning.  Vitamin B12 supplementation has been shown to enhance sleep patterns, allowing for more restful and refreshing sleep.

Symptoms of Deficiency:  A vitamin B12 deficiency can be caused by malabsorption, which is common in elderly people and in those with digestive disorders.  Deficiency can cause abnormal gait, bone loss, chronic fatigue, constipation, depression, digestive disorders, dizziness, enlargement of the liver, eye disorders, hallucinations, headaches (including migraines), inflammation of the tongue, irritability, labored breathing, memory loss, moodiness, nervousness, neurological damage, palpitations, pernicious anemia, ringing in the ears, and spinal cord degeneration.  Strict vegetarians must remember that they require vitamin B12 supplementation, as this vitamin is found almost exclusively in animal tissues.  Although people adopting a strictly vegetarian diet may not see any signs of the deficiency for some time - the body can store up to five years' worth of vitamin B12 - signs will eventually develop.
