Vitamin B-12 is naturally found in animal products like fish, meat, poultry, eggs milk and milk products. It is produced by microorganisms such as bacteria, and algae. Animals do not create their own B-12; animal products provide us with vitamin B-12 because animals ingest the microorganisms that produce this nutrient.
B-12 is found in the highest concentrations in our liver, and to a lesser extent, our kidneys. When taken with folic acid, vitamin B-12 may help to support healthy homocysteine levels already within the normal range.* An excessive intake of alcohol can interfere with your body’s ability to absorb vitamin B-12.
Vitamin B-12 is an essential vitamin that helps to build and maintain healthy cells, is used to create DNA, plays a role in protein and fat metabolism, and helps to support healthy energy levels.* Some people, including those with intestinal issues and older individuals, may have difficulty absorbing this important vitamin from food. Additionally, vegetarians may not get enough vitamin B-12 through their diet.
