B-12 1000 mcg as Methylcobalamin (Black Cherry) - 100 Lozenges
Vitamin B12 supports cellular energy production. It is also important for proper red blood cell formation, helps maintain nervous system health, and helps maintain a healthy homocysteine level.†
Helps Convert Food into Cellular Energy†
Vitamin B12 plays a critical role in the pathways of your body that produce cellular energy. When you consume a meal, B vitamins, including vitamin B12, help convert the carbohydrates, proteins and fats into cellular energy to fuel your body’s many chemical reactions.†
Helps Maintain Nervous System Health†
Deficient levels of vitamin B12 have been associated with neurological deficits.†
Essential for Proper Red Blood Cell Formation†
Vitamin B12 is required for normal purine synthesis. Purines are building blocks used to make DNA for red blood cells.†
Helps Maintain a Healthy Homocysteine Level†
Vitamin B12, vitamin B6, and folic acid (vitamin B9) individually and collectively help to maintain a healthy homocysteine level. Homocysteine is an amino acid; elevated levels of this amino acid may negatively affect vascular health. Without adequate vitamin B12, homocysteine can accumulate in the body.†
Methylcobalamin vs Cyanocobalamin
Methylcobalamin:This is the most natural form of B12 and needs no converting .It is already in its “ready to use” form and is a more expensive form. Methylcobalamin is the active coenzyme form necessary for any biological activity. It also is the least stable with the shortest shelf life, converting back to hydroxycobalamin if not stored correctly. Methylcobalamin is sometimes referred to as “active B12” as it is in a form ready to be used by the cells.
Cyanocobalamin: Is the cheapest and most stable form of B12 and has a long shelf life but needs to have the cyanide molecule taken off, so has an extra conversion before being converted to methyl or adenyslcobalamin. With a certain eye condition, (Lebers hereditary optic neuropathy) cyanocobalamin should not be used.
