Why Is Vitamin B12 So Important?
For starters, this nutrient is necessary to:
- Help your nerves produce the insulator, myelin. The myelin sheath prevents us from developing neurological problems like, neuropathy, loss of balance, hearing problems (tinnitus), and depression.
- Necessary ingredient in the production of red blood cells. Without B12, your red blood cells don’t mature and subsequently have a hard time carrying oxygen. This contributes to anemia, fatigue, and shortness of breath.
- Necessary for your body’s ability to perform the methylation cycle. This cycle is central to detoxification, hormone production, and healing.
- Necessary for supporting the function of the liver. Without B12, your liver can become fatty, a disease sometimes referred to as NAFL (non alcoholic fatty liver disease).
