Now B-12 1000mcg


Vitamin B-12 (Cyanocobalamin) is a water soluble vitamin necessary for the maintenance of a healthy nervous system and for the production of energy from fats and proteins. Vitamin B-12 is also essential for the synthesis of DNA during cell division and therefore is especially important for rapidly multiplying cells‚ such as blood cells. In addition‚ adequate intake of Vitamin B-12‚ along with Folic Acid and Vitamin B-6‚ is critical for the conversion of homocysteine to methionine‚ thereby supporting a healthy cardiovascular system. While B-12 is stored in the liver‚ dietary sources are of animal origin only (meat and dairy). Therefore‚ supplementation with B-12 may be especially important for strict vegetarians.
