Why Every Woman Needs Vitamin B12

By Smarty More Blogs by This Author

Okay girls, it's time for some girl talk. We have great music, every kind of pizza, iced tea, and of course, tons of chocolate! What? You can't enjoy the party because you're not feeling good? You say you are feeling weak, lightheaded, nauseous, and making frequent bathroom stops? Allow me to help you, friend. A probable solution to your problem is that your body isn't getting enough of the very necessary vitamin B 12.

Want to know how to fix this problem? Let's figure this out!

So you haven't been "feeling yourself" and you want to know why and fix it! I can help. Check and see if you'se had one or more of these symptoms:

  1. Dandruff
  2. Decreased reflexes
  3. Heart palpitations
  4. Memory problems
  5. Anxiety
  6. Weakness
  7. Bleeding gums
  8. Constipation
  9. Decreased appetite
  10. Diarrhea
  11. Fatigue
  12. Lightheadedness
  13. Mood change
  14. Nausea
  15. Pale appearance
  16. Sore, red tongue
  17. Weakness

Those mainly at risk for vitamin B12 deficiency are vegetarians because vitamin B12 is found in fish, shellfish, liver, meats, and many dairy products. If you don't eat any of these foods, then you're probably not getting the vitamin B12.

Do you want to get back to your old self and stop having these life-disrupting symptoms? No problem. I'm here to help. Here are three ways to help you get back to feeling like your old self:

  1. Stay active. Exercise is a great stress reliever and great for your body, mind, and soul.
  2. Vitamin Supplements. Look for a great vitamin that contains B12 to get what you need daily.
  3. Eat healthy. The recipes are just a few of many possibilities that are rich in vitamin B12.

Vitamin B12 is needed for normal nerve and red blood cell production and activity, DNA replication, and the production of the mood-affecting substance SAMe (S-Adenosyl-L-Methionine). Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin that is commonly found in a variety of foods.
