Vitamin B12 is an important vitamin for maintaining much of your body’s function. One example of its effect is its ability to treat depression. If you suffer from depression, you may consider getting a blood test to examine your B12 levels. If your doctor says your levels are low, you may consider altering your diet to eat more meat products or taking a daily supplement (look for one containing methylcobalamin).
