It is also required for the proper digestion and absorption of foods, and in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. It aids in cell formation and cellular longevity. B12 plays a role in nervous system function with the production of myelin, the protective sheath around nerves, as well as the production of a neurotransmitter that helps with memory and learning.
Vitamin B12 is the only vitamin that contains essential mineral elements. Methylcobalamin is the biologically active form of B12 and is essential in converting homocysteine into methionine, which is used to build protein. As such, it plays an important role in protein synthesis necessary for cardiovascular function.
