Let’s Talk About Manufacturing Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12, aka Cobalamin, is a critical vitamin that the body needs but cannot produce on its own. It works to support normal nerve cell function and is required for red blood cell formation and DNA synthesis. It can help boost energy levels, improve mood, memory, and prevent the development of cardiovascular disease. Read on to learn how you and your customers can benefit from you offering Vitamin B12 supplements with Makers Nutrition as your vitamin manufacturing partner.

What Else Does Vitamin B12 Do?

Vitamin B12 shows science-backed promising effects, which you can make easy for consumers to explore with a high-quality dietary supplement. This nutrient may:

  • Reduce the Risk of Macular Degeneration: Vitamin B12 may reduce the risk of the eye’s development of age-related macular degeneration. Studies show that supplementing with this nutrient could lower the amount of homocysteine, a type of amino acid that is found in the bloodstream. This is important since higher levels of homocysteine have been linked to increased chances of macular degeneration.
  • Improve Mood: Though more research is needed to fully comprehend how it works, Vitamin B12 may lead to less-than-adequate serotonin levels, causing a depressed mood. One study focusing on people with depression and low Vitamin B12 levels found that those who received both antidepressants and Vitamin B12 were more likely to show improved symptoms compared to subjects taking antidepressants alone. Another study showed that Vitamin B12 deficiency was connected to twice the risk of severe depression. Higher B12 levels have also been associated with better outcomes and a higher probability of recovery from major depressive disorder.
  • Support Brain Health: Research has shown that in people with early-stage dementia, a combination of B12 and omega-3 fatty acids can slow mental decline. It also shows that even Vitamin B12 levels that are just on the low side could contribute to poor memory performance, perhaps serving as a wakeup call for consumers who do not know much about the vitamin’s abilities.
  • Support Hair, Skin, and Nails: Adequate Vitamin B12 levels are necessary for healthy hair, skin, and nails. If your customers have low levels of B12, they could experience a variety of dermatological symptoms, including nail discoloration, vitiligo, and angular stomatitis. However, if your customers are well-nourished, then they will likely see no effect from a B12 supplement in terms of hair, skin, and nails.

Who is at risk of a Vitamin B12 Deficiency?

20% of people in the U.S. and the U.K. 60 years and over are deficient in Vitamin B12. Such a deficiency can occur when one’s diet lacks the nutrient, or the body is unable to absorb it through foods eaten. Clams, meat, sardines, fortified cereals, eggs, tuna, trout, salmon—all good sources of Vitamin B12. If people are vegan, they are more likely in need of Vitamin B12 if they do not take dietary supplements to compensate. There is also pernicious anemia, an autoimmune disease which drastically limits the body’s ability to absorb Vitamin B12, requiring the need for supplementation or injection with the nutrient.

Warning Signs of a Vitamin B12 Deficiency

  • Fatigue
  • Pale or yellow skin
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Depressive symptoms
  • Gastro issues such as bloating, gas, nausea, and diarrhea
  • Muscle cramps and muscle weakness
