User Comments about Vitamin B12
03 Jul 2012 I am vegetarian so we lack in B12. It is really important for your health not to be deficient in terms of nutrients. I feel like B12, as well as a lot of supplements, help you a lot although the effects of it you only notice after some time. It is really good for your health, so I recommend it.
