Tired

Are you feeling more tired than usual lately? Easily fatigued doing tasks that you remember being easy to do? Less enthusiastic than normal? While there are multiple things that could explain all the above, one factor could be your vitamin B12 levels!

Vitamin B12 is necessary for our bodies to make red blood cells and keep our brains operating in tip-top shape. When our bodies lack the necessary nutrients to make red-blood cells, we can become easily tired, fatigued and mildly depressed. There’s good news though – your vitamin B12 level can be easily checked through blood work ordered by your physician. Also, vitamin B12 can be taken as an oral supplement, and adding certain foods to your diet can aid in the increase of this wonderful vitamin as well. Try including these delicious options in your diet to make sure you’re getting enough B12:

  • Fish
  • Red meat
  • Poultry
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Milk products
  • Fortified breakfast cereals

Talk with your doctor today to see if increasing your vitamin B12 level can help you fight off tiredness, fatigue and feeling down and get back to living an energetic, happy life!
