Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) constitutes an amazing area of research with many hidden facets. Key milestones in this area have been developed over 10 decades. This long process of trials and errors, and search and discoveries has radically changed our understanding for the role of this nutrient in health and diseases. The impact of vitamin B12 on human health has been shifted from ‘treatment’ of a deadly condition to ‘prevention’ of diseases. The importance of B12 has now taken global dimensions on a population level given the high prevalence of subclinical B12 deficiency that affects many individuals in critical life phases. This book has been written by experts who documented latest developments in the field. It is written for individuals looking for in depth knowledge of the nutritional, chemistry, biochemistry, health and medical relevance of the vitamin. The book provides insights into open research questions to encourage working on in areas that seem most promising.
