What is Vitamin B12 Requirement?

Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is needed for normal functioning of your brain, nervous and digestive systems. It is involved in making DNA, forming red blood cells, and fatty acid and amino acid metabolism. Vitamin B12 can be only manufactured by bacteria, and is typically found in animal food sources. Deficiency in vitamin B12 may be a factor in anemia, fatigue, and stomach inflammation, and is usually due to poor absorption, rather than dietary deficiency. Other factors linked with vitamin B12 deficiency include vegetarian and vegan diets, pregnancy, high intensity training, alcohol consumption, over 50s, depression and gastrointestinal disorders.

Genetic variations may negatively affect vitamin B12 absorption, resulting in potential deficiency.

RDA for adults is 2.4 micrograms.
