Vitamin B-12 is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for the maintenance of a healthy nervous system and for the metabolic utilization of fats and proteins.  Vitamin B-12 is also essential for the synthesis of DNA during cell division and therefore is especially important for rapidly multiplying cells, such as blood cells.
In addition, adequate intake of Vitamin B-12, along with Folic Acid and Vitamin B-6, encourages healthy serum homocysteine levels thereby supporting cardiovascular health.  Because Vitamin B-12 is found predominantly in animal products, strict vegetarians are at risk of developing Vitamin B-12 deficiency and may benefit from supplementation.  NOW Ultra B-12 is also formulated with the entire B-Complex family of vitamins, which work together to support cellular energy production.  NOW Vitamin B-12 is vegetarian/vegan (non-animal derived).

Whether you're already expecting or just planning to be, taking the right vitamins can help ensure a healthy baby, and one of the most important for you and your baby is folic acid. Up to 70 percent of all neural tube defects, which are birth defects of the brain and spine, could be prevented if every woman of childbearing age took folic acid daily, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

While it is not entirely known why folic acid helps prevent birth defects, it has been shown to decrease the risk of spina bifida, the leading cause of childhood paralysis. It also decreases the risk of developing anencephaly, which is a fatal condition in which an infant is born with a severely underdeveloped brain and skull.
