Vitamin B12 is an extremely important nutrient that the body uses for a variety of essential functions such as energy production, DNA creation, and maintaing our central nervous system. 

Vitamin B12 deficiency can occur when you do not consume sufficient vitamin B. Its deficit can also be caused by anaemia, gastric surgical intervention, and certain gastrointestinal issues.

 You can easily detect a vitamin B12 deficiency if you have the following symptoms:

  • pale yellow skin colour
  • A red and sore tongue 
  • mouth ulcers
  • sensation of pins and needles 
  • visible changes in the way you walk
  • blurred vision
  • Anxiety and depression 
  • Certain changes in the way you think and feel
  • disturbed mental abilities like memory

There are some foods that are packed with the goodness of vitamin B1, and by consuming them you can increase your levels naturally. 


A cup of milk has numerous nutrients and minerals. Vitamin B12 is present in abundance in milk. You can consume low-fat, toned milk, which will help in maintaining calorie intake and a lean body.


A fatty fish has an extremely high nutritional value. In addition to being high in vitamin B, fish such as tuna, sprouts, and salmon are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are incredibly beneficial to our bodies. It also aids in the preservation of a healthy nervous system and ensures good mental health.

Meat and beef

Meat is a prime source of vitamin B, specifically lean meat. Lamb and beef help combat the deficiency caused by vitamin B and also provide high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, zinc, and iron.

A vitamin B12 deficiency can be a serious health concern, but it is often easily remedied with the right diet and supplements. If you think you may be deficient in vitamin B12, talk to your doctor to get a proper diagnosis. In severe cases, you may need vitamin B12 shots or pills to correct the deficiency. But in most cases, eating foods rich in vitamin B12 or taking a supplement will suffice.
