What is vitamin B-12?

Vitamin B-12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in many functions in the body, including:

  • DNA synthesis
  • energy production
  • nerve cell health
  • red blood cell formation
  • neurological function

B-12 is present in many food sources (mainly animal-based), where it is bound to the protein molecules in that food.

Vitamin B-12 is separated from the protein during digestion and is absorbed into the bloodstream.
