Ultra B-12 by Now Foods is a food supplement based on vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin). Although it is only needed for the organism in small quantities, this vitamin fulfils very important functions in our body.
Vitamin B12 intervenes in the formation of red blood cells, in the growth and cellular division and formation of DNA and RNA (and is therefore essential for the regeneration of all tissue and corporal growth). It plays an essential role in the formation of the sheaths covering the nerve fibres (myelin sheaths) and is therefore necessary for maintaining a healthy nervous system. It also intervenes in the metabolic use of fats and proteins.
Vitamin B12 is responsible for the metabolism of a potentially dangerous amino acid for the cardiovascular system, homocysteine. Vitamin B12 activates the conversion of homocysteine into another amino acid called methionine and thereby reduces the concentration of homocysteine in the blood.
Thanks to this, vitamin B12 protects the cardiovascular system and contributes to preventing cardiovascular disease. The Ultra B-12 de Now Foods also includes all the group B vitamins, vitamins that work together to support the production of cellular energy.
