COBALT is interesting for its effect on red blood cell production. Research suggests that cobalt supplementation may increase the amount of erythropoietin (EPO) in the body. This, in turn, can lead to improved physical performance. However, the use of cobalt as a dietary supplement is prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) due to its potential doping effects. Cobalt is also an important trace element that is needed for the production of vitamin B12 in the human body. Vitamin B12 is essential for the production of red blood cells. As well as for the health of the nervous system.
