How do we usually consume Vitamin B12?
B12 is usually obtained through nutrition. The highest concentrations are found in animal sources, such as meat, dairy, fish and eggs. Vitamin B12 can also be supplemented with pills and sprays, as an alternative to injections.
Who is most likely to suffer from a B12 deficiency?
Vegans or strict vegetarian diets can be at particular risk of developing a deficiency as non-animal sources of food usually contain no or very low doses of B12. Other people may become B12 deficient if they lack certain gut enzymes that allow the body to 'extract' B12 for animal sources.
Weight loss surgery patients in particular, are at increased risk of developing vitamin B12 deficiency because their digestive tracts have been altered in such a way as to interfere with the natural absorption of this vitamin. In patients who have had gastric bypass surgery, most of the stomach is bypassed, limiting the breakdown of vitamin B12 and its absorption.
