B-12 is present in many food sources (mainly animal-based), where it is bound to the protein molecules in that food. It is separated from the protein during digestion and is absorbed into the bloodstream. Adequate stomach acid is required to release the vitamin from the protein, and a substance called intrinsic factor is necessary to ensure its absorption. People who are unable to absorb vitamin B-12 properly may have pernicious anemia, which is a type of anemia characterized by a lack of intrinsic factor. The average daily intake of vitamin B-12, as recommended by the Office of Dietary Supplements, is 2.4 micrograms (mcg) for men and women over 14. Pregnant and breastfeeding women require slightly more, at 2.6 mcg and 2.8 mcg, respectively. Doctors recommend B-12 injections if you’re having an overall deficiency of this micro-nutrients.
B-12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in many functions in the body, including:
- DNA synthesis

- Nerve cell health
