Why Every Vegan and Vegetarian Should Take A Vitamin B12 Supplement

 

" Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause depression, poor memory and confusion."

What is Vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient for the maintenance of healthy nervous system and brain function. Our body also needs this water-soluble vitamin to produce DNA and blood cells.

What is The Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of Vitamin B12?

The recommended daily intake for adults is 2.4 mcg (microgram), however, pregnant and breastfeeding women need between 2.6 and 2.8 mcg of vitamin B12 per day.

The Sources of Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is naturally found in animal foods such as beef liver, clams, meat, fish, poultry, eggs, milk and other dairy products.

Fruits and vegetables don't contain vitamin B12. In fact, we can't get vitamin B12 from any of plant-based foods unless it is fortified with this vitamin. Every vegan and vegetarian should take a vitamin B12 supplement or eat vitamin B12 fortified foods to get the recommended daily intake of this essential vitamin.

Vitamin B12 deficiency makes your skin look pale and lack of radiance. It causes the skin under the eyes to look darker in comparison. To reduce the appearance of dark circles due to nutrient deficiency, you need to improve your diet. Apart from nutrient deficiency, dark circles under the eyes can be caused by sleep deprivation, illness and genetic conditions. To lighten the dark circles and improve the overall skin condition, gently apply Bio-Collagen Ageless Cream to the skin around the eyes every morning and evening. This brightening anti-ageing cream has been formulated with 24-karat gold, niacinamide and n-acetyl glucosamine to brighten and rejuvenate the appearance of the skin. It also strengthens and protects skin cells from free radicals and oxidative damage.

Another excellent product to energise the skin and promote a radiant complexion is the multi-award-winning Antioxidant Youthful Essence. Formulated with vitamin C, B5, E and ferulic acid, this all-skin-types pre-serum elixir protects the skin from pollution and premature ageing including UV-induced photoageing. Apply to freshly cleansed face and neck every morning and evening, and then follow with Bio-Collagen Serum and Bio-Collagen Ageless Cream.

 

" This is amazing! I noticed a difference round my eyes after the first application. My skin felt tighter and firmer after just a couple of days."
