The man-made form of vitamin B12 is called cyanocobalamin, and it’s a common medication used to treat low levels of vitamin B12.
Vitamin B12 has many roles in the human body. It supports the normal function of nerve cells and is necessary for red blood cell formation and DNA synthesis. Vitamin B12 also helps your body turn fat and carbohydrates into energy.
Most of us get enough vitamin B12 from our diets or vitamin B supplements, but a deficiency can occur for people with certain health conditions (e.g., poor nutrition, stomach/intestinal problems, infection, cancer). People with serious vitamin B12 deficiency can result in anemia, stomach problems and nerve damage.
