What is Vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 is a water soluble vitamin that is instrumental in the formation of red blood cells and cells of the nervous system. It also assists in the formation of DNA in all our cells. Even though it is a water soluble vitamin, B12 can be stored in the liver for long periods of time.
We can obtain most of our daily requirement for B12 through the foods we eat. Vitamin B12 can be found in meat, fish, poultry, eggs, milk and milk products. Vitamin B12 can also be found in some fortified breakfast cereals.

B12 Side Effects
Vitamin B12 is generally safe to take at the recommended daily amounts. However, there have been some reported B12 side effects that include diarrhea, breakouts of acne. These are side effects that are generally associated with taking vitamin B12 shots. We recommend taking vitamin B12 supplements orally and at the recommended dosage.
Most B12 tablets and pills are not easily absorbed in the stomach and intestines. We recommend taking sublingual vitamin B12 supplements. By placing a B12 tablet under the tongue and letting it dissolve, it is quickly absorbed by the blood vessels located under the tongue directly into the blood stream. This is the most efficient way to raise B12 levels in the body.
