Vitamin B12, known as Methylcobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for several key body processes.
Its deficiency can lead to fatigue, memory issues, and neurological problems. Notably, it is crucial in red blood cell formation, neurological function, and DNA synthesis.
Moreover, it's a co-factor in synthesising methionine, an amino acid, and S-adenosylmethionine, a universal methyl donor for almost 100 different substrates, including DNA, RNA, hormones, proteins, and lipids.
A healthy amount of stomach acid is required for B12 absorption, making it potentially less accessible for the elderly, those with gut issues, or those taking antacids.
This supplement provides B12 in its active form, Methylcobalamin, which can be utilised more efficiently by the body than other forms.
The need to know
What are the benefits?
Supports healthy blood cells
Boosts brain functions
Promotes red cell production
Vitamin B12 is critical for neurological function primarily due to its role in the synthesis of myelin, the substance that forms an insulating layer around neurons.
It also plays a key role in homocysteine metabolism, a compound associated with cardiovascular disease when at high levels.
The methylcobalamin form of B12 is involved in the re-methylation of homocysteine to methionine, helping maintain a healthy homocysteine balance.
Our supplement is provided in the Methylcobalamin form, ready to be used by cells and tissues without needing conversion, providing a more effective dose.
How will I know its working?
