Deficiency in B12 is usually due to a problem in absorption rather than diet. Vitamin B12 is absent from most fruits, vegetables and grains. Vegetarians are more susceptible to deficiency. This is caused by a lack of “intrinsic factors,” a substance secreted by the stomach. Folic acid plays an essential role in the synthesis of DNA and RNA and is also key in the formation of red blood cells, protein metabolism, reproduction and growth.
