Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) acts as a coenzyme in protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism as well as haemoglobin synthesis. It has an important role in decarboxylation, deamination, transamination and trans-sulfuration of aminoacids.
Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamine) is essential to growth, cell reproduction, hematopoiesis, and nucleoprotein and myelin synthesis so its deficiency result in neurological damage also vitamin B12 has the main role in folic acid activation.
