Vitamins are used to provide energy, to strengthen the immune system, to protect the skin and eyesight. Furthermore, they help muscles, cognitive abilities and cell development. In short, they are essential to make our body function properly.
The body cannot produce the necessary vitamins on its own, so when there are deficiencies it sends specific signals. For example, beware those who have a deficiency of vitamin B5 could manifest this problem in skin and hair.
In the case of serious deficiencies, supplements and nutrition come to us by car.
An important vitamin like any other
Probably when we talk about vitamins, we immediately think of the best known: those of group A, B, C, D. But in reality there are others, equally important.
One vitamin, in particular, must be taken through food because it is water-soluble. That is, it cannot be accumulated in the body.
Let’s talk about vitamin B12 or cobalamin. A vitamin that plays an essential role in the production of red blood cells and in the formation of the bone marrow. It also contributes to the well-being of the nervous system and to the formation of the myelin sheath, which lines the nerves.
As we have described above, vitamin B12 must be obtained through food, and a deficiency can lead to severe symptoms as well.
Beware of tingling hands and feet as it may be due to a lack of this vitamin
Vitamin B12 is linked to the production of red blood cells. So a deficiency can cause problems with anemia, but also fatigue, weakness and poor concentration.
Pay close attention to tingling hands and feet as it may be due to a lack of this vitamin, as indicated in this study.
Vitamin B12 is linked to the nervous system, so when there are severe deficiencies, numbness or pins and needles in the hands and feet can occur.
But for what reason? Nerve demyelination can occur in the central nervous system.
Our advice, however, is always to check the symptoms with your doctor.
