One of the most common symptoms of B12 deficiency is increased fatigue or lack of energy levels. What's interesting is that we know why this happens: Vitamin B12 (along with other B vitamins) is required for proper energy production in your mitochondria. Recall from basic biology that your mitochondria produce "energy" for your body in the form of a molecule called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). The number of mitochondria in your cells and muscles and how effective they are working determine your subjective sense of "energy". Anything that lowers energy production in the mitochondria may manifest as fatigue. Vitamin B12 plays an important role in this process as you can see below: Vitamin B12 and energy production In addition, it has been shown in studies that supplementing with B12 can increase energy levels (2). This is why vitamin B12 is put into "energy drinks" and other supplements that are meant to boost vitamin B12. But here's the most important part: One of the main reasons for Vitamin B12 deficiency is due to malabsorption of vitamin B12 in our GI tract. So basically, you can be consuming B12 in your diet (or even taking supplements with B12) but not actually absorbing it. This is why one of the main benefits of taking B12 shots is increased energy levels. By taking a shot you are bypassing the GI tract and allowing for 100% absorption into the body straight into the cells (which is where B12 has its action). If you are taking Vitamin B12 supplements and not feeling any different than it may be due to a lack of absorption.
