Your health is at risk if you are not aware of some essential facts about essential B12 and folate. The risk is that without optimal levels of these two B vitamins, chronic inflammation increases the risk of developing illnesses such as cancer, dementia, obesity, diabetes, depression, cardiovascular disease, strokes, etc. B12 and folate must be in their natural bioactive forms to be used by cells for every biochemical activity including gene expression, energy production and cleansing of cellular waste products.These B vitamins are required for all other positive health interventions to succeed, e.g., if someone took vitamin D and calcium to strengthen bones but were missing B12 and folate, osteoporosis would still develop.

Recently Vitamin D has been noted as a nutrient that can reduce the severity of COVID outcomes. Rarely mentioned is the importance of the most essential of the essential vitamins B12 and folate (B12/F). In their bioactive (vitamer) forms, these two vitamins are critical to the efficient biochemical functioning of cellular energy production, waste management (homocysteine reduction) and optimization of the inflammatory response through DNA epigenetic methylation. A deficiency of B vitamers causes a worsening of any medical illness particularly whole-body viral infection (sepsis). Without enough B12/F all treatments will not work well, for example, you can have plenty of Vitamin D and calcium but still develop osteoporosis. [B12/F are co-vitamins and can only work well when there is enough of both.]
