Fortunately, the NHS explains that there are some foods that still offer vitamin B12.

Sources include yeast extract, fortified breakfast cereals and soy products.

Although food cravings might signal the “sneaky” deficiency, as dubbed by the Harvard Medical School, there are also symptoms to spot.

From mouth problems to depression, the NHS detail the tell-tale signs of lacking this vitamin.

The health service warns it’s important for it to be treated “as soon as possible” to avoid any further problems.

It states: “Although many of the symptoms improve with treatment, some problems caused by the condition can be irreversible if left untreated.

“The longer the condition goes untreated, the higher the chance of permanent damage.”

From diet swaps to injections, there’s plenty you can do to replenish your levels once you get the condition confirmed.
