What Is Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin)?
Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin. It helps with nerve and blood cell health while also playing a role in DNA synthesis. While we usually get it through animal-based or fortified foods, digestive challenges that come with aging can affect absorption. Maintain healthy levels with B12 supplementation.
Vegetarians and the elderly tend to be the ones most challenged with maintaining healthy levels of vitamin B12.
