Methylcobalamin Ultra - 15mg - 60 Lozenges $51.99

Vitamin B12, (derived from Methylcobalamin) is a water-soluble vitamin that is considered the most potent vitamin. The methylcobalamin form of B12 is in its active form (unlike cyanocobalmin, which must be converted first). High-dose B12 can prevent or treat neuropathy (impaired nerve function caused by diabetes sometimes) and lessen sleep disturbances (insomnia or hypersomnia). It is needed for normal nerve cell activity, iron function, DNA and RNA (genetic material) production, and the production of the mood-affecting substance SAMe (S-adenosyl-L-methionine). B12 is important for the activity of certain enzymes within cells that control fat, protein (amino acid) and carbohydrate metabolism (enzymes are special substances that speed up reactions in the body). Vitamin B12 is essential for the proper production of blood platelets and red and white blood cells and the manufacture of vital substances needed for cell function. B12 levels decrease with age and various cognitive problems are associated with this. The most important use of vitamin B12 is to treat the symptoms of pernicious anemia. Vitamin B9 (folate) and B12 are critical to the health of the nervous system and to a process that lowers homocysteine (amino acid) levels in the blood. Vitamins B12, B6, and B9 work closely together to promote heart health by controlling the blood levels of homocysteine. Elevated plasma homocysteine levels have been linked to atherosclerosis (and therefore heart disease and stroke), birth defects such as neural tube defects, as well as with impaired cognitive function and decreased bone density. Vegetarians are particularly at risk for B12 deficiency and associated complications, as animal products are virtually the only sources of this nutrient. AOR’s B12 is an excellent source of this essential nutrient - in convenient lozenge form.
