So why is Vitamin B12 so important?
Vitamin B12 is vital for helping your body to work properly – and deficiency causes problems for young and old, men and women and can have an effect on all body systems.
This particular vitamin is involved in the production of red blood cells: it helps maintain a healthy nervous system, and plays a role in converting food to energy. It also helps your body synthesise fatty acids and regulates your mood.
Without Vitamin B12, cells cannot multiply properly.
Without Vitamin B12, there’s a risk of permanent nerve and brain damage.
Without Vitamin B12, babies can experience problems with feeding and growth.
Being deficient in Vitamin B12 can have lasting effects on your body, your mind and your appetite for life.
Incorrect treatment with oral B12 instead of vital B12 injections can lead to irreversable damage.

Common problems that patients face;
Many with this condition feel they have no alternative but to resort to self treatment. They purchase their injectable B12 from the many countries where it is legally sold over the counter. Faced with doctors who refuse to treat patients adequately, self injecting is often the only route to health. If we could buy injectable B12 over the counter in the UK it would change lives, please sign the petition below.
