Vitamin B-12 helps the body convert food into energy, which makes it a popular choice among those who prefer a more natural alternative to coffee and energy drinks. It is also essential for the formation of red blood cells, and it helps to support healthy nervous system function. Vitamin B-12 supplementation is especially beneficial for vegetarians and vegans who do not consume dietary sources of the vitamin, states NatureMade.
