From healthy blood cells and hearts to healthy brains, B-vitamins are vitally important to the care and maintenance of our bodies every minute. What you might not realize about B-vitamins, however, might surprise you. Vitamin B-12, in particular, plays an incredibly important role in making sure our nerves connect properly with our brains, that our red blood cells are normally sized and is also involved in creating the genetic material in every cell in the body!
