- Folic acid and vitamin B12 are necessary for the production of red blood cells, oxygen transport in red blood cells and are important for cell growth and replication. Vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid assist in the maintenance of a healthy cardiovascular system by helping to maintain healthy homocysteine metabolism and normal blood in healthy individuals. Vitamin B12 is an important cofactor for folic acid function.

B Vitamins are required for ATP energy production. Vitamin B5 is found in high concentrations in the adrenal cortex and plays an important role in adrenal gland function.
