Vitamin B-12 and Academic Performance

A Deficiency of Vitamin B-12 Linked to Poor Academic Performance
In general, B vitamins play a significant role in cognitive functioning as well as metabolism.

A study published in the Journal of Nutrition found a lack of vitamin B-12 is linked to poor academic performance.

Students who were deficient in this vitamin nearly tripled their chances of repeating a grade and were almost twice as likely to miss school.

The study also found fifteen percent were borderline B-12 deficient, while another two percent were deficient.

The study also looked at other micronutrient deficiencies, but vitamin B-12 was the only one connected to being held back a year.

"Vitamin B12 is necessary for adequate brain development,” said Dr. Eduardo Villamor, associate professor of epidemiology. “Deficiency very early in life or in old age has been linked to cognitive and behavioral problems, but it was not known whether it could be related to academic difficulties during school age. Grade repetition and school absenteeism are important outcomes because they predict school dropout and impair children’s options for educational advancement and development." - Medical Xpress
