It also helps to metabolize other ingredients including proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. So vitamin B12, also known as cabal, is also a very calmly known Vitamin B. You may have heard about, it’s in the component of vitamin B12 shots. Now vitamin B12 plays a role in your nervous system to metabolize certain proteins to help metabolize carbohydrates and to regulate folic acid.
