In brief: Many

Vitamin B12 is important for many things including nerve function and the making of red blood cells.
If you are low on it, therefore, you could have a low blood count or a numb/tingling sensation. Most adults need about 2.4 mcg (micrograms) daily. The main dietary sources are fish/meat, dairy products, and fortified cereals. Link for more info: http://ods.Od.Nih.Gov/factsheets/vitaminb12/.
