Vitamin B12 is important for producing DNA and breaking down homocysteine, an amino acid that can cause serious problems (such as cardiovascular disease or blood clots) if it builds up to high levels. While most people obtain vitamin B12 through their diet, some may require supplementation. The vitamin is available in tablet, capsule, injection, nasal spray, and patch form.
