What are the benefits of vitamin B12? Vitamin B12 is known as Cyanocobalamin
Vitamin B12 supports normal energy-yielding metabolism: when vitamin B12 starts to drop, your energy levels tend to follow suit. Providing your body with enough vitamin B12 will help your body have the energy to tackle any day.
Vitamin B12 supports red blood cell synthesis: red blood cells help to deliver oxygen to all of our body tissues. The body needs vitamin B12 to make red blood cells.
Vitamin B12 supports healthy nervous system function: good levels of vitamin B12 help to keep your nervous system nice and healthy.
Vitamin B12 supports healthy psychological function
Cyanocobalamin Tablets contain cyanocobalamin, which is known as vitamin B12.
Most people get enough vitamin B12 from their food, but if you have had stomach surgery, or certain diseases of the intestines, or a restricted diet, you may not absorb enough vitamin B12.
Lack of vitamin B12 in the body causes a disease called pernicious anaemia (reduction in the number of red blood cells) which is often treated with vitamin B12 injections
