Caption: Vitamin B12. Artwork based on a polarised light micrograph of crystals of cyanocobalamin, also known as Vitamin B12. This is one of the water- soluble B-complex vitamins, and is necessary for the synthesis of nucleic acids and the maintainance of the nervous system. Vitamin B12 deficiency leads to anaemia (loss of red blood cells) which ultimately affects almost all body tissues. The most serious effects of this are a degeneration of the nervous system, and vomiting and diarrhoea. Vitamin B12 is contained only in foods of animal origin, especially liver, fish and eggs.
