Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin required for the body to work properly. It is necessary for the function of the brain, nervous system, and blood cells, among other parts of the body. Vitamin B12 is consumed in a variety of foods, including meat, fish, and dairy products. It can also be taken as a dietary supplement. If you suffer from a vitamin B12 deficiency, supplements may be the only way that you can treat the condition.
People take Vitamin B12 to treat a variety of conditions, including Alzheimer's, heart disease, diabetes, AIDS, mental disorders, skin infections, Lou Gerhig's disease, MS, age-related macular degeneration, Lyme's disease, and gum disease. Some people take the supplement to enhance mood, memory, mental concentration, and the immune system.
Studies have proven that Vitamin B12 is effective against various forms of B12 deficiency and pernicious anemia. It is likely effective against cyanide poisoning and Hyperhomocysteinemia. It may be effective against macular degeneration and nerve damage from shingles. For almost every other kind of ailment, B12 is either likely ineffective, or insufficient evidence exists for any benefit.
Vitamin B12 is likely safe, even for breast feeding or pregnant women, if taken in the recommended dosages. In addition, B12 has few drug interactions. However, chloramphenicol tends to decrease the creation of new blood cells, which would counteract B12's effect of increasing them.
The proper dosage for a B12 supplement varies according to age, health condition, gender, and how much you're consuming through food. At Twenty First Century Herbs we recommend that you take one tablet of our high quality Vitamin B Complex per day. Do not exceed the recommended daily intake.
