      Vitamin B12, or cyanocobalamin, is a group of cobalt-containing water-soluble vitamins. They are coenzymes necessary for red blood cell production - folate polyglutamate is the major red cell form of folate. Vitamin B12 is derived primarily from food of animal origin, including dairy products. Vitamin B12, or cobalamin, was isolated from liver extract in and identified as the nutritional factor in liver that prevented pernicious anemia.
