Vitamin B12 – Essential for the nervous system and the blood

Vitamin B12 is a substance that plays an important role in the normal functioning of the nervous system, the formation of red blood cells and in the absorption of Vitamin B9 (folate). It is also involved in the release of energy from the food we eat. Furthermore, Vitamin B12 is involved in the production of DNA. Low Vitamin B12 levels are reported in older adults, but this is usually due to physiological changes resulting in reduced absorption. You may be advised to take Vitamin B12 as a supplement to correct these low levels.
