1. when is the onset of action of vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 takes effect the first time it is taken. Vitamin B12 is available in the form of capsules and tablets. Both forms are easy to handle and get into circulation quickly. This is where the effect begins. Many people ask themselves when is the right time to take vitamin B12. Taking it is independent of the time of day. However, vitamin B12 in the form of food supplements should always be taken on an empty stomach or 30 minutes after a meal.

2 What is vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin. It is the only water-soluble vitamin that can be stored in the body over a very long period of time. Vitamin B12 plays a special role in various metabolic processes. The vitamin ensures that the nerves are strengthened and concentration can be maintained for longer. Vitamin B12 supports the body in blood formation and is therefore also called red vitamin. Furthermore, the human organism needs vitamin B12 for the construction of DNA, the important carrier of all genetic information.

3 How can one prevent a vitamin B12 deficiency?

A vitamin B12 deficiency can be caused by various reasons. In most cases, it is caused by malnutrition or wrong diet. A B12 deficiency can be prevented in time by a balanced diet with the right foods. In general, one should eat a very balanced diet, which means sufficient amounts of vitamins, minerals and healthy fats.
Seniors, vegetarians and vegans are particularly often affected by a vitamin B12 deficiency. This can affect both their diet and digestive problems. A vitamin B12 deficiency can be remedied both by adjusting one's diet and by taking a suitable food supplement.

4. food with high vitamin B12 content

Especially animal products such as meat, fish and dairy products contain a lot of vitamin B12. The foods with the highest vitamin B12 content are the following:

Vitamin B12 content per 100 grams:

  • Liver: approx. 30 - 60 mg
  • Oysters: approximately 15 mg
  • Tuna: approximately 4 mg
  • chicken egg: approx. 2mg
  • Emmental: approx. 3mg

Since vitamin B12 is heat-sensitive, foods containing vitamin B12 should not be fried for too long. If foods are overheated, considerable amounts of vitamin B12 can be lost. For this reason, foods containing vitamin B12 should be fried rather superficially.
