Sunday, June 09, 2019
Vitamin B-12 is a water-soluble vitamin that helps with red blood cells, cell metabolism, nerve function and the production of DNA. Vitamin B-12 helps with the absorption of vitamin A into the body and aids in folic acid synthesis. Folic acid is a major aspect of neurological development. A very important role of B-12 is cognition. B-12 is also very important for blood cell formation and anemia prevention. Bone health is also affected by the consumption of B-12, keeping your levels at an adequate amount is great for preventing osteoporosis.
