If you don’t consume enough vitamin B12, start doing so now!

Sep 15, 2021 12:57 IST | By Editorji News Desk

A wholesome diet and sufficient nutrient intake are two important factors to maintain one’s health and well-being. Deficiency in nutrients in the diet can lead to various ailments, including nerve damage which can go unnoticed and become a serious threat in the later stages.

A new survey has revealed that most Indians ignore the early symptoms of a weak nervous system. The survey conducted amongst 1800 respondents across 12 cities, showed that over 60% of them ignored early signs of poor nerve health. When people experienced the symptoms of nerve damage, only 50% of them related it to nerve health, thereby revealing the limited knowledge about the disorder.

Signs of poor nerve health

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine Center, there are some common signs and symptoms of a poor nervous system. Some of them being - 

  • Persistent headache
  • Loss of muscle strength
  • Dizziness 
  • Forgetfulness
  • Double vision

Neurotropic-B vitamins, which are attained from food and medical supplements, play a very important role in keeping the nerves healthy and protected.

The problem lies when some people don’t consume enough vitamin B12 to meet their needs and others can’t absorb the nutrient from their food due to other health factors. As a result, Vitamin B12 deficiency is found to be relatively common, especially amongst older people.
