For Nerve and Brain Health
B-12 functions as an essential nutrient for the health of our brain and nervous system. Vitamin B-12 provides support for good energy production. When taken with folic acid, vitamin B-12 helps support normal homocysteine levels for a healthy heart and brain. Vitamin B-12 is especially important for vegetarians and elderly people who often don’t get enough in their diets.
