What Critical Health Benefits Does this Vitamin Bring to the Table?
Vitamin B12 helps folic acid regulate the formation of red blood cells, and helps your body use iron.
In addition, it is also needed for proper digestion, food absorption, carbohydrate and fat metabolism. It also helps keep your nervous system healthy by assisting the nerves of your body to function and communicate in an optimal manner.
But that's not all.
B12 also helps in cell formation and cellular longevity. Plus, it can support female reproductive health, and promote normal nerve growth and development by maintaining the fatty sheaths. These fatty sheaths play a vital role as they cover and protect your nerve endings.
What's more, this workhorse of a micro-nutrient is critical to your circulation and adrenal hormone production -- plus, it contributes to the normal function of the immune system.
Vitamin B12 supports a healthy mood and feelings of well-being. And it also provides excellent support for your memory, mental clarity, and concentration.
Dr Mercola’s B12 spray is an effective, convenient and completely natural way to optimise B12 levels. Being a vital component of overall body optimisation - many people are deficient to some degree.
The spray uses nano technology and a patented NanoMist delivery system, that reduces the size of the B12 molecule to microscopic nano-droplets, which delivers the nutrients to the body for fast and easy absorption.
Who is at Risk?
Recent research is beginning to suggest that certain people with a genetic disposition, diet or having taken certain medications. may be at greater risk of developing a B12 deficiency. The list includes the elderly, people of South Asian descent, vegans/vegetarians and people taking medications such as Lansoprazole and Omeprazole. This list is far from exhaustive and it is important to consult with a medical professional to establish if you are at risk of B12 deficiency.
Make Sure Your Vitamin B12 Is Made from Methylcobalamin
Otherwise, you could be wasting your time. Not all types of B12 (cobalamins) are created equal.
There are generally three main types of cobalamins used in B12 supplements:
Even though cyanocobalamin B12 is probably the most popular form of B12 in supplements, it may not be the most effective. That distinction goes to methycobalamin (methyl B12).
And methyl B12 is the cobalamin compound of choice in B12 Energy Booster because:
- Studies suggest that methyl B12 may be better utilised and retained in the body.
- Methyl B12 is the active form of vitamin B12 and evidence indicates it has some applications not shared by other forms of vitamin B12.
- With other forms of B12, your body must convert them into a coenzyme form for you to benefit - not so with methyl B12. It's already in the active coenzyme form naturally found in your body.
