1. how does a vitamin B12 deficiency manifest itself?

A vitamin B12 deficiency can be recognized by different symptoms. However, a vitamin B12 deficiency is only noticeable at a very late stage, because the body can store larger amounts of the vitamin in the long term. Common symptoms are anaemia, hair loss, muscle weakness and disturbances in cell division in the skin. A deficiency of vitamin B12 can be caused by different reasons. In the most common cases, it is caused by malnutrition or incorrect 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. A healthy diet includes the supply of vitamins, minerals and healthy fats.
