Could Vitamin B12 Help Your Anxiety, Depression?

Could a B12 vitamin deficiency be causing your depression, anxiety or even symptoms of psychosis? This important video shows results of a B12 deficiency and how it can negatively affect your physical and emotional health. We were shocked at the serious problems it can cause.

Note: The amount of B12 present in a healthy diet combined with most multi-vitamin or B-complex supplements may meet your basic needs. But: Get medical/nutritional advice from a professional before supplementing with mega-amounts of vitamin B12.  There can be serious side-effects.
