It plays a key role in the synthesis of nucleic acids (for DNA production and repair, aids in single carbon metabolism (methylation and glutathione production), interconversion of amino acids (for neurotransmitter production and detoxification), aids in the formation and maturation of RBC, WBC and platelet production, aids in ulcerative colitis and preventing cervical dysplasia.
