In some people, especially those over age 50, the body does not produce sufficient “intrinsic factor,” a component of stomach acid required for absorbing vitamin B12. Likewise, vitamin B12 is poorly absorbed by people who suffer digestive disorders, such as Crohn’s or celiac disease, and people who have had gastrointestinal surgery. Vegetarians and vegans can also receive too little vitamin B12 since the main dietary sources of B12 are meat and cheese. In addition, recent studies show that B12 deficiency is common even among young people who eat meat. A deficiency of vitamin B12 can cause neurological decline even before symptoms of anemia appear. It can also cause elevated homocysteine levels, which increase the risk for heart disease.
