Feeling unusually tired or weak can be one of the first symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency.

Because the body is unable to produce enough red blood cells, symptoms appear in the form of paleness and yellowing of the skin, which is also called jaundice.

7. Mental health problems

Some studies have indicated that vitamin B12 deficiency is associated with some cases of depression, memory problems, difficulty concentrating, and mood swings.
