Water Soluble Vitamins - Vitamin B12

Deficiency of this vitamin leads to a form of anaemia that cannot be distinguished from that seen in folate deficiency but with the added symptom of neurological degeneration.

Again, causes of deficiency may be dietary insufficiency, malabsorption and the use of certain drugs.

Vitamin B12 is found only in foods of animal origin i.e. meat and dairy products. Vegetarians and especially vegans should take a supplement to ensure adequate status.
