Vitamin B12 is needed to form red blood cells, DNA, produce energy and maintain our heart health. If we don't get enough, it can impact our energy levels, memory and mood - making us feel weak and tired.
Vitamin B3 and phosphorus are critical ingredients needed to produce and maintain our bodies energy supply. B3 also plays a role in managing cholesterol levels (certain types of cholesterol are associated with an increased risk of heart disease and heart attacks).
