Life is a roller coaster ride. We all need someone and something that takes care of us.

Vitamins do just that. They look after our health and ensure the smooth functioning of our bodies.We are all so busy.More often than not we fail to meet our nutritional goals and our vitamin intake drops. This is fine in the present but it’s not so great in the long run.

Vitamin B12 is one among the list of very much needed.

What Is Vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 Benefits

  • Vitamin B 12, also known as Cobalamin, is one of the 8 vitamins found in vitamin B complex. All B group Vitamins are required to convert food into fuel to produce energy but vitamin B 12 also plays an important role in regulating metabolism. This makes Vitamin B12 an essential nutrient found especially in animal sources of food.
  • These are water soluble and delicate. They get destroyed easily when cooking or by consumption of alcohol. Food processing also reduces the amount of Vitamin B in foods.
  • However, this vitamin does have a difference from the remaining of the complex. This is the only water soluble vitamin that is stored in large quantities in the liver for years.
  • The daily requirement of Vitamin B12 varies from person to person. Strict vegetarians, heavy drinkers, smokers, pregnant ladies and elderly people usually require more doses of Vitamin B12 than others.
  • People with a liver or kidney condition and sufferers of haemolyticanaemia also require a bit more of Vitamin B12 than others.
  • RDA recommends at least 2.4 micrograms of Vitamin B12 per day.

Sources of Vitamin B12:

  • Vitamin B 12 is present in liver, meat, eggs, shellfish , cheese, muscle meat and fish
  • Milk contains Vitamin B 12, processing of milk often leads to destruction of Vitamin B 12.
  • Fortified soy milk, fortified yeast and some sea leaves are the vegetarian sources of Vitamin rich foods.

Vitamin B12 is mostly found in animal meat and othernon-vegetarian food sources. This means that vegetarians are at risk of Vitamin B deficiency. If you are a vegetarian, then you can replace the source with Vitamin B 12 supplements that are easily available in the market. Always consult a doctor before starting any supplements

Deficiency in Vitamin B12:

Nutritional deficiency of Vitamin B 12 is rare; but the body’s inability to utilize the vitamin can lead to deficiency disorders.

Sometimes our body is not able to absorb the Vitamin well, mainly because of defective absorption in the digestive system. This can happen with a person suffering from anemia, Crohn’s disease, bacteria growth in intestine and or due to worms.It is rare for young people to be deficient in Vitamin B 12 and more likely for older people to be mildly deficient. This may be because their diet is not sufficiently healthy or because they have depleted production of stomach acids which the body needs to absorb Vitamin B 12. However, it is rather difficult to identify a vitamin deficiency as the symptoms don’t present themselves during the early stages.

Vitamin B12 Deficiency Symptoms

1. Memory Failure:

Vitamin B deficiency can lead to a weakened memory that leaves you puzzled. If you are constantly misplacing things or forgetting about your schedules and appointments, you need to check your diet. You might be suffering from Vitamin B deficiency. Add some fish and proteins in your diet.

B. Vitamin B 12 Benefits for Hair:

9. Proper Doses:

Vitamin B12 has a lot of hair related benefits too. Vitamin B12 provides nourishment to all the cells of the body including our hair follicles. While Vitamin B12 is essential for hair growth, taking it in more than usual amount will not help the hair to grow. Only people with Vitamin B deficiency need supplements for proper hair growth.

10.  Premature Hair Loss:

People who lack Vitamin B 12 in their bodies often suffer from premature hair loss. If you consume a diet that is inadequate in Vitamin B 12, you experience hair loss, or slow hair growth rate. This is because the body cannot process Vitamin B 12 on its own and cannot utilize the food you eat without vitamin B 12. This results to undernourished hair follicle cells which slows the hair growth rate.

11. Healthy Hair:

Vitamin B 12 is important for healthy nervous system and the formation of red blood cells and a compromise in either of these can affect our hair.

12. Hair Growth:

Vitamin B 12 also stimulates hair growth. Once the level of Vitamin B 12 is corrected, hair follicles start receiving proper nutrients and will be able to replicate correctly which leads to the regrowth of previously lost hair.

13. Pigmentation:

Melanin is a form of amino acids known as tyrosine, which helps to support healthy brain functions and is responsible for the pigmentation and colour of hair and skin. Vitamin B12 helps to encourage the re-pigmentation of the hair and also maintains the original  colour of the hair.

Poor nail health is another common sign of Vitamin B 12 deficiency. Some symptoms of unhealthy nails include rigged nail surface and disappearing of the moon of the cuticle. Brittle nails also mean that you require more Vitamin B 12 intake.

23. Effect on Prions:

Cobalamin also helps to protect against prion diseases. Prions are unhealthy proteins.When exposed to the tissue, they badly effect healthy proteins and render them useless. Prions can also destroy tissue of the nervous system. It can also cause Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a human form of mad cow disease and other neurological conditions as well.

24. Prevents Cardiovascular Disease:

Vitamin B 12 helps to prevent cardiovascular diseases. Elevated levels of Homocysteine, an amino acid, increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Homocysteine level in the blood is regulated by Vitamin B 12 and Folate.

    my curls back? I cut it short and I blow dried it everyday because I had a short bob hair cut, and I’m letting it grow out now but the curs are still gone. Any suggestions

    • neha minou <3

      stop blow drying it. wash your hair and leave it still without even combing it when it’s wet. once it’s completely dry, then comb it using a fine comb. if ever your hair becomes dry when you are combing it, massage with olive oil and wash it the next day. your curls will be back if its in your genes!! ^_^

  • niki

    Believe it or not, onions are a secret home remedy for hair growth! Take 1 red onion, 4 cloves of garlic, 2 sticks of cinnamon and boil them in a pot of water. Let it cool to room temperature, rinse it through your hair. Wash it out in 15 minutes.
    Try this every time you wash your hair for a few weeks and you’ll cry with joy from having fuller, richer hair!

  • dksha

    All you people suffering from hairfall, see to that your hormones are balanced and have sufficient iron intake. During my hairfall days, I used Nagarjuna company’s Neelibhrigadi Thailam. You’ll find them at Baidyanath stores. Believe it or not but my hairfall reduced from 50 to 60 strands a day to only 15 strands a day the very next day I applied this oil. You need not massage your scalp with the oil. Just apply it with the tip of your fingers on to your scalp. Massaging is good for your hair but not during hairfall issues. If the roots are weak, massaging will only increase your hairfall and not reduce it. Eat yogurt everyday. And see to that you don’t fall sick very often. Comb your hair twice everyday and be kind with your hair while combing.

    can we boil garlic cloves in almond oil and apply on the hair??

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Hi Rani, yes you can heat garlic cloves in almond oil and to this you can also add coconut oil and pieces of onion. Heat all these together. Remove the vessel from the stove and allow it to slightly cool down. Apply this oil and massage it on your scalp. Do this every alternate day and wash this off with mild shampoo. You can achieve a long, shiny and super voluminous hair naturally.
