Vitamin B12 is one of the eight B vitamins that are water-soluble. Vitamin B12 deficiency is a global problem due to several gut disorders that hamper the absorption of many critically important vitamins, including vitamin B12. Since this is not so abundant in the vegetarian source of food items, vegetarians are more prone to this deficiency, especially when they don’t consume a balanced meal.
Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, plays an essential role in the formation of red blood cells, cellular metabolism, and proper functioning of the nerves and nerve conduction, as well as in the production of DNA, the molecules inside our cells that carry genetic information. So in case you think that you’re not consuming enough vitamin B12 or experiencing issues due to this, take this quiz!
