Food supplement. Vitamin B12 lozenge.
Vitamin B12 differs from other B vitamins in many ways. It is obtained only from animal products such as meat, fish, eggs and milk. The vitamin needs an internal factor secreted by the stomach to be absorbed in the gut. The daily requirement is only 2 micrograms. The body’s vitamin stores are small, but it is enough for several years before there are signs of a deficiency. A common cause of low or insufficient intake of vitamin B12 is malabsorption due to an acid-free stomach. An acid-free stomach can be caused by long-term use of acid blocker medications or aging. In an acid-free stomach, the internal factor required for the absorption of vitamin B12 is not secreted, which significantly impairs the absorption of the vitamin.
Those who follow a vegan diet are also at risk for vitamin B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 is an important vitamin for our nervous system. It promotes normal neurological and psychological functions. Psychological functions are cognitive related to memory, concentration, learning, and problem solving. Vitamin B12 is needed for cell division and the formation of red blood cells. Therefore, long-term vitamin deficiency can cause anemia.
