Description

Vitamin B12, also referred to as Cobalamin, belongs to the family of water-soluble B vitamins and is involved in a number of key pathways and processes that help the body function at its best.(1) Vitamin B12 is needed for the production of energy from fats and proteins, for the formation and growth of red blood cells and for the synthesis of DNA. Vitamin B12 also helps maintain a healthy nervous system and promotes normal homocysteine levels, which is important for cardiovascular health.†(2)
Vitamin B12 absorption is known to become less efficient with age so supplementation is often recommended for individuals over 50. Vitamin B12 supplements are also recommended for vegan and vegetarian individuals since Vitamin B12 is found in foods of animal origin.
