Our Secret To Always Staying Energized: Vitamin B12
Health is the foundation of every dream we set out to accomplish, as it fuels the body and mind to work in synergy and verve to achieve our goals. When we are in the best of health we simply get-up-and-go for the things we desire. There is simply no stopping our zest for life. We begin to value the good things around us and get the strength to sail through difficult times with a positive attitude. Health is the buttress that holds us together and provides us with the energy required to live a meaningful and fulfilling life everyday.
Nature has provided us with a source of energy and vitality in the form of food. By consuming healthy and nutritious food we can cater to the daily nutritional requirements of our body. A regular supply of vitamins and minerals are vital for growth, repair and production of energy needed for the life-sustaining functions of all organs. Although all vitamins are essential and play unique roles in nourishing the body, Vitamin B12 is a magic nutrient that keeps the body always energized and ready to go.
Vitamin B12 helps the body to convert food into energy-giving glucose. It is required for production of red-blood cells that carry oxygen to all parts of the body. This essential vitamin is required by the body to synthesize DNA. Vitamin B12 helps to keep the nerve cells healthy and boost immunity by aiding regeneration of bone marrow as well as the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, thereby improving the absorption of nutrients and preventing bowel disorders like gastritis. It is also essential for pregnant and menstruating women as it prevents spinal and central nervous system birth defects in babies.
Vitamin B12 deficiency = Energy deficit
The most common symptom of Vitamin B12 deficiency is fatigue and weakness. Since it is a vital nutrient that helps the body breakdown food and release energy. Its deficit leaves us lethargic and weary the entire day. We begin to lose the luster of skin and hair, which become pale and dull due to vitamin B12 deficiency.
Low levels of this vitamin also causes trembling and imbalance in the body along with a prickly sensation in hands and feet.
In order to lead a quality life we must feel energetic at all stages, but as we age our body is unable to absorb vitamin B12 efficiently. This is why we must up our intake of supplements to slow down aging and retain essential micronutrients in the body that start to diminish with age.
Vegetarians and vegans are highly susceptible to vitamin B12 deficiency since it is mostly from animal-sourced foods like poultry, meat, fish, eggs and dairy products are rich natural sources of vitaminB12. Vegetarians must include dairy foods like milk, curd, yoghurt, buttermilk and cheese in their daily diets, which are vegetarian food sources of vitamin B12. Vegans can eat mushrooms, fortified cereals, nutritional yeast, seaweed and fortified non-dairy milk- soy, almond, coconut and supplements to get adequate vitamin B12.
