Vitamin B12 is an essential mineral that provides many benefits to the body such as boosting your energy, improving your memory, and helping prevent heart disease. However, the body does not produce it on its own, you can only get vitamin B12 from food.
Some of the primary food sources of vitamin B12 are meat and dairy. But, for vegetarians and vegans, this poses a challenge. While you can find vitamin B12 in some plant foods (certain fruits and vegetables), the most common way to supplement a diet lacking vitamin B12 is by eating fortified foods and taking B12 health supplements.
You can get health supplements for Vitamin B12 in Dartford at Intrigue Health pharmacy as well as our other branches in Kent, Gravesend, Longfield, Bexley, and Medway in South London.

What Are Fortified Foods?
