Properties of Vitamin B-12
Vitamin B-12 is essential for the prevention of anemia, the formation and longevity of cells, the digestion and assimilation of food, the synthesis of proteins, the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats.
It maintains fertility, participates in the production of genetic material, DNA and RNA, promotes the normal development of the body, is anti-cancer, plays a key role in the functioning of the nervous system and, possibly, helps prevent Alzheimer's.
According to a recent study in Scotland of people aged 60-78, those with the highest levels of vitamin B-12 and folic acid in their blood also performed best on intelligence tests (Am J Clin Nutr, 2002, 75: 785-6 ).
The elderly and people with digestive disorders are at increased risk of B-12 deficiency due to reduced absorption. Also vegetarians, due to the rarity of B-12 in the plant world, often need dietary supplements with B-12.
