    Vitamin B12 is a very necessary and vital vitamin. It is absorbed in the body along with vitamin B6. It helps in making red blood cells in the body.


    Main Function of Vitamin B12
    The main function of vitamin B12 is cell synthesis and making red blood cells. Another main function of B12 is to convert homocystine to methionine. The methionine that is converted can go on to become part of SAMe. SAMe is a methyl group donor that can protect DNA and may be important for cancer prevention.


    RDA of Vitamin B12
    Recommended daily allowance of vitamin B12 is 2.4 mcg.


    Deficiency of Vitamin B12
    Deficiency of this vitamin is not usually due to lack of the intake, because there is efficient recycling of this vitamin by the intestines, but rather from lack of absorption. Inadequate HCL in the stomach and lack of intrinsic factor can prevent absorption. Vitamin B6 assists in absorbing B12.


    Degradation of Vitamin B12
    Vitamin B12 is destroyed by microwave cooking and also lost in the cooking water.


    Benefits of Vitamin B12
    1. Needed for the production of energy from proteins and fats.
    2. Needed to make red blood cells in the body.
    3. Essential for a healthy nervous system.
    4. Essential for the growth and development
    5. Improves concentration, memory and balance.


    Vitamin B12 in Food
    Vitamin B12 is made by bacteria in the colon. So it is found only in foods made from animal products e.g. meat, dairy products and eggs.


    Note: Sunlight, water, estrogens and sleeping pills act as enemies of B12.
