1. How Important is B12 Really?
Preeti Rao, Health and Wellness Expert, Max Multi Speciality Centre, Panchsheel Park, affirms that Vitamin B12 truly is the “latest buzz” in the nutrition world. But how important is it truly?
The nutrition expert further adds that the vitamin is essential for both men and women. However, recent research has pointed out that men are more likely to be deficient in Vitamin B12 than women even in the healthy population zone, she adds. Interestingly, this can neither be explained by diet habits nor estrogen effects.
Dr Vaibhav Mishra, Additional Director, Cardiac Surgery, Fortis Hospital Noida, too emphasises the importance of B12.
