The added benefit of an extra supply of the cofactor vitamin B12.
Vitamin B12 is an important cofactor for numerous metabolic functions of our body. among the B group vitamins, vitamin B12 poses a limiting factor. The reasons for this are varied and may derive from eating habits and the make-up of the gastrointestinal tract. In such cases, supplementing one’s diet with vitamin B12 can be advisable in order to sup- port various cell functions.
A purely vegan diet is usually limited to fermented products and therefore does not allow for a suﬁcient supply of vitamin B12. specialists recommend that vegans should take vitamin B12 supplements.
The absorption of vitamin B12 is primarily bound to a speciﬁc transport molecule, the so-called intrinsic factor. In the small intestine, vitamin B12 and intrinsic factor form a com- plex. This complex binds to the receptors of the intestinal wall, prompting the absorption of vitamin B12 into the cells.
Intrinsic factor is produced in the gastrointestinal tract. However, production may decline with age. Consequently, an increased supply and a direct uptake through the mucosa becomes more important.
