Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that naturally found can be in certain foods. The vitamin actually exists in different forms, such as methylcobalamin and 5-deoxyadenosylcobalamin, which both are active in human metabolism. The vitamins are often called cobalamins because they contain the mineral cobalt.
The vitamin is typically found in animal products, such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs and milk products. It is generally not present in plant foods, but can be fortified in cereals, while some nutritional yeast products also contain the vitamin. Because it is typically found animal food sources, it is probably the most common nutrient lacking among vegetarians and vegans.
Deficiencies of vitamin B12 are characterized by fatigue, weakness, megaloblastic anemia, constipation, weight loss and lack of appetite. Other symptoms of deficiency include depression, poor memory, confusion, dementia, difficulty maintaining balance, and soreness of the mouth and tongue. During infancy, signs of the vitamin deficiency include movement disorders, developmental delays, failure to thrive, and megaloblastic anemia, but several of these symptoms can also be the result from a variety of other medical conditions.
