Maybe you don’t pay much attention to the signs your body gives you.

Maybe you don’t even know what your body must tell you.

Here, in this article we will give you a heads up on all the symptoms and causes of vitamin B12 deficiency. 

Another plus that you will get here is a few easy tips on how to regulate this issue.

Vitamin B12 is of utmost importance as it takes vital role in many bodily functions. Among them are:
- Proper digestion
- Iron absorption
- Metabolism of fat and carbs
- Nerve growth and formation
- Healthy reproductive system in women
- Secretion of adrenal hormone
- Circulation
- Formation of red blood cells
- Healthy nervous system

Deficiency in vitamin B12 may be triggered by different factors, out of which the following are most common:

A. Antacids affect the assimilation of vitamin B12 since the body needs enough stomach acid to absorb it

B. Nitrous oxide, also known as the laughing gas, destroys vitamin B12 in the body

C. Drinking more than 4 cups of coffee a day leads to a 15 percent reduction in vitamin B12 levels

D. Gastric bypass weight loss surgery changes the digestive mechanisms, affecting the absorption of vitamin B12

E. The H. pylori bacteria destroys stomach cells that create the “intrinsic factor”, which are needed for absorption of vitamin B12

We listed below the symptoms of Vitamin B12 Deficiency:

1. Anxiety
- Since vitamin B12 stimulates the production of dopamine and serotonin, known as the ‘happy’ brain chemicals, anxiety is often a warning sign of low vitamin B12 levels.

2. Changes in Taste
- The bumps on the tongue are the ones responsible for recognizing the taste of the food you eat.  In case you notice changes in your taste and often get a ‘blah’ impression of the food, it is very likely that you are deficient in vitamin B12.

3. Dizziness
- Feeling dizzy is yet another sign of lack of oxygen in the blood.

4. Inability to Keep Your Eyes Open
- This is result of lack of oxygen in the blood, which is directly caused by the vitamin deficiency itself.

5. Memory Loss
- Memory loss is often caused by vitamin B12 deficiency, especially in younger individuals who are young to develop dementia.

6. Numbness
- Feeling numb and tingly is a result of nerve damage, which occurs due to vitamin B12 deficiency.

7. Optic Nerve Damage / Vision Problems
- In case you notice any changes in your vision, such as double or blurry vision, test your vitamin B12 levels as deficiency in this vitamin often leads to vision problems.

8. Yellow Skin
- When the body lacks vitamin B12, it loses its ability to produce strong cells.  The degradation of red blood cells causes yellow skin and is a sure sign of vitamin B12 deficiency.
