It is closely related to the actions of four amino acids, pantothenic acid and vitamin c. It also helps iron function better in the body and aids folic acid in the synthesis of choline. B12 helps the placement of vitamin A into body tissues by aiding carotene absorption or vitamin A conversion. It also aids in the production of DNA RNA, the body's genetic material.
