Vitamin B 12

    • Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) has an important role in red blood cell formation, cell metabolism, nerve production, and DNA production.
    • B12 deficiencies are rare in the US, but prolonged deficiencies can lead to the development of anemia, muscle fatigue, nerve damage, and intestinal problems.
    • A few pharmaceutical drugs interact with the absorption of B12, including proton pump inhibitors, and amino salicylic medicines.
