Would a lack of vitimin b12 and folic acid make some one very tired?
The problem is the body does not absorb theese vitamins for some reason, it may be ulcers or some such.As long as you eat a diet with the recommended amount of meat, you shouldn't be lacking these vitamins. Vegans are the only group I know of that have a diet so deficient in essential nutrients that it is dangerous and they have to take supplements.
When in doubt take a mutli-vitamin pill with at least 100% of the minimum daily requirements.
The simple answer is yes. If you are not getting enough in your diet, or are having difficulty absorbing enough from your diet, you can take supplements for both. If the problem is an absorption problem, i.e., you aren't digesting it properly, then a vitamin pill is probably not the ideal way to supplement these vitamins. You can get vitamin B complex as an injection from a doctor in that case. This will help boost energy levels.Would a lack of vitimin b12 and folic acid make some one very tired?
Exhausted, irritable, at times almost unable to fully function. I have pernicious anemia -- a lack of B12 -- and that's caused by not absorbing enough from my food because of a lack of intrinsic factor in my stomach. Insufficient B12 causes your red blood cells to expand and become light pink as they try to absorb enough oxygen to carry around your body. Insufficient B12 messes with your red blood cell production, overall. They don't form properly.Would a lack of vitimin b12 and folic acid make some one very tired?
