ARE YOU AT RISK OF B12 DEFICIENCY?
There’s a very good chance you are deficient if you eat a plant-based diet and completely avoid foods derived from animals. If you’re over 50, changes in the stomach lining can also reduce the production of stomach acid, which is essential to help you absorb B12 from food. Deficiency symptoms include fatigue, low mood, and memory loss. See your doctor to discuss supplements if you think you could be at risk.
