Together with vitamin B6 and folic acid, vitamin B12 is one of the
powerhouse trio of B vitamins that help to decrease and normalize the
homocysteine levels in our body. Increased homocysteine levels can cause
the build-up of plaques in the artery walls (atherosclerosis), which
can lead to heart disease or stroke. B12 deficiency is also associated
with complications in pregnancies and neurological disorders. Vitamin
B12 is also essential to help regulate the hormonal balance in pregnant
and menopausal women and also in those using oral contraceptives.
Vitamin B12 supplementation is recommended at any age, but it may be
particularly beneficial for older people who suffer from age-related
degenerative conditions and for people who have a vegetarian or a vegan
diet as it is found in meat and seafood.
