Vitamin B12 supports energy metabolism and promotes a healthy nervous system. Along with Folic Acid and Vitamin B6, it supports heart health by promoting healthy levels of homocysteine. Vitamin B12 is required for the normal development and regeneration of red blood cells, which help to deliver oxygen throughout the body. In addition, B12 is involved in DNA synthesis and renewal.
Methylcobalamin is the body ready form for greatest absorption and the type taken sublingually, that is, tablets which are taken to dissolve in the mouth and not swallowed with a glass of water, are most effective. The vegan lifestyle is especially prone to a deficiency in Vitamin B12 so supplementation is a good idea. In most cases of anaemia, where iron is recommended, a Vitamin B12 is also helpful.
