Vitamin B-12 (also known as cyanocobalamin) should be plentiful in most of our diets but the body’s ability to utilize it is often impaired, especially as we age. 20% of elderly people are thought to be deficient in Vitamin B-12 even if many of them have no overt symptoms. Supplements are therefore often recommended with advancing age. Pernicious anaemia, affecting older adults in particular, can be a fatal unless cured by Vitamin B-12. Vitamin B-12 is the only B vitamin that the body stores in large amounts, mostly in the liver. It is usually taken in conjunction with folic acid. Vitamin B-12 is essential for cell replication and is particularly important for red blood cell production. It helps maintain the protective sheath around nerves (myelin), assists in converting food to energy and plays a critical role in the production DNA and RNA, the genetic material in cells.
