Vitamin B-12 (Cyanocobalamin) is a water soluble vitamin necessary for the maintenance of a healthy nervous system and for the metabolic utilization of fats and proteins. Vitamin B-12 is also essential for the synthesis of DNA during cell division and therefore is especially important for rabidly multiplying cells, such as blood cells. In addition, adequate intake of Vitamin B-12, along with Folic Acid and Vitamin B-6, encourages healthy serum homocysteine levels, thereby supporting cardiovascular health. Because Vitamin B-12 is found predominantly in animal products, strict vegetarians are at risk of developing Vitamin B-12 deficiency and may benefit from supplementation.* NOW® Vitamin B-12 is vegetarian/vegan (non-animal derived).
What do cell replication, energy metabolism and DNA production all have in common? Each one of these vital functions relies on adequate levels of B-12 to occur. NOW® B-12 1000 mcg with Folic Acid is an ideal way to supply the body with a perfect dose of this crucial nutrient. As an integral part in the lives of active and health conscious individuals, B-12 has gradually become recognized for its coenzymatic properties and important assistance for the production of healthy red blood cells.*
