Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamine)
Vitamin B12 is a coenzyme that is involved in two very important metabolic functions vital to normal cell growth and DNA synthesis: 1) the synthesis of methionine, and 2) the conversion of methylmalonyl CoA to succinyl CoA. Deficiency of this vitamin can lead to megaloblastic anemia and ultimately to severe neurological problems.
