Active Ingredient History

Cobalamin (vitamin B12) is a cobalt-containing, B complex vitamin. B12 group (cobalamins) consist of cyanocobalamin, hydroxocobalamin, methylcobalamin and cobalamid. Neither plants nor animals are independently capable of constructing vitamin B12. Only bacteria and archaea have the enzymes required for its biosynthesis. Therefore, humans must absorb it from food. Excellent sources of B12 are foods of ruminant origin, so dairy and meat products play an important role in efforts to meet the official daily B12 intake. Vitamin B12 deficiency can potentially cause severe and irreversible damage, especially to the brain and nervous system. Vitamin B12 is used to treat vitamin B12 deficiency, including pernicious anemia.   NCATS
