5 Reasons Why To Consider Taking Vitamin B-12

About a year ago, I began taking a daily supplement of vitamin B-12. I had just started to get well again after seven long months of battling mononucleosis and sleeping 12+ hours a day. My doctor recommended B-12 as it can help increase energy levels in people who are deficient in the vitamin, and now I swear by that little pill!

1. B12 is a nutrient that helps keep nerve and blood cells healthy.

2. This vitamin helps make DNA! (Now that's important stuff!)

3. A deficiency in B12 can lead to fatigue, weakness, loss of appetite, and megaloblastic anemia.

4. People over 50 typically have a hard time absorbing B12 naturally found in food; however, supplemental B12 can usually be absorbed.

5. Although B12 is only proven to increase energy levels in those deficient in the vitamin, I can attest through personal experience that this vitamin has allowed me to cut out naps completely and definitely gives me noticeably more energy. (Maybe I did have a deficiency?)

Bonus! 6. I have restless legs syndrome, and B-12 has significantly help me manage it!

**I am not a doctor or any other type of medical professional, although I have seen every episode of Grey's Anatomy from seasons one through five. This is my personal experience, supported by facts from the National Institute of Health. Talk to your doctor before taking any medication or supplement regularly!

If you do decide to start taking B-12, or any other vitamin for that matter, consider purchasing Nature Made vitamins (or another brand made sans chemicals). The whole point of taking a vitamin is to get all that awesome goodness, not weird chemicals used to produce them!

I am currently looking into a few more supplemental vitamins to add to my multivitamin and B-12 regime. I hate to take medication when there is a more natural way of proactively preventing a health issue! Anyone else take B-12?

  4. However, remember this advice: Do not make the topic too
    broad; for example, if you decide to write about global
    warming, don't try to discuss each and every aspect of global warming, which would turn your paper into a book, but, instead, choose a focus this manageable and, therefore, can be discussed adequately in a student paper. The more weight you use the more muscle fibers you will work in your muscle the more muscle you will gain. However, it's also easy to lose
    weight, even if the process itself can be slow.
