Vitamin B12 and folate are usually good to take together as taking folate on its own can mask a B12 deficiency. Think of folate and B12 as buddies who work together to form healthy red blood cells. If there is a deficiency in either vitamin, we form abnormally large red blood cells that can’t function properly.
A deficiency in either of these essential vitamins can cause a wide range of health problems. These include: extreme tiredness and a lack of energy, pins and needles, a sore and red tongue, mouth ulcers, muscle weakness, disturbed vision, psychological problems (including depression and confusion) and problems with memory, judgement and understanding.
