New scientific study. Vitamin B12: Essential for tissue repair

Un estudio liderado por el instituto IRB Barcelona de investigación biomédica ha investigado el papel de la B12 en la reprogramación celular, un proceso que se considera que imita las primeras fases de la reparación de los tejidos. Este nutriente se consigue en alimentos como pescados, carne roja, carne blanca, huevos, leche y otros productos lácteos.

Considering the abundance of vitamin B12 in the mice's normal diet, the researchers were surprised to observe that a B12 supplement significantly improved the efficiency of reprogramming.
