B12 500 mcg
Vitamin B12 500 mcg tablets, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, supply 500 mcg of Vitamin B-12 in each easy to swallow tablet.
Vitamin B-12 is essential for normal energy metabolism of carbohydrates, fat and protein. As a cofactor for methylmalonyl-CoA mutase enzymes, vitamin B12 helps convert odd chain fatty acids and branched chain amino acids into succinyl-CoA, a common citric acid cycle intermediate.
Vitamin B12 is also required for nucleic acid (DNA) synthesis, methionine synthesis from cysteine, and normal myelin synthesis in the nervous system. Along with vitamin B6 and folic acid, adequate levels of vitamin B12 are required to maintain normal plasma homocysteine levels.
Elevated plasma homocysteine may be an independent risk factor for developing heart conditions.
Vitamin B12 500 mcg may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals who wish to increase their intake of vitamin B12.
