Vitamin B12 | Cobalamin

The structure of vitamin B12 is the most complex of all vitamins. Its molecule has a porphyrin cycle similar to that of haem and chlorophyll dyes, but with cobalt as its central atom. Vitamin B12 occurs in several major forms: hydroxy-, cyano-, and methylcobalamin. Vitamin B12 serves as a cofactor in several enzymatic reactions. This vitamin is industrially produced through special fermentation using bacteria.‍ ‍Vitamin B12 contributes to: Normal energy-yielding metabolism Normal nervous system function Normal homocysteine metabolism Normal psychological function Normal immune system function Normal red blood cell formation Reduction of tiredness and fatigue  ‍We add vitamin B12 to Mana in the form of cyanocobalamin. Precise information on the quantity of vitamin B12 in ManaPowder Origin can be found here.
