    Vitamin B12

    Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) works together with folate in the synthesis of DNA and red blood cells. It contributes to

    • the normal functioning of the nervous system
    • normal psychological function
    • normal energy-yielding metabolism
    • the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
    • the normal functioning of the immune system

    B12 deficiency is far more common than most doctors and the general public realize. Data from the Tufts University Framingham Offspring Study suggest that 40 percent of people all ages have plasma B12 levels in the “low normal range” – but at this range many of them already experienced neurological symptoms.
