Vitamin B12 - 1000 mcg (methylcobalamine)
Good quality vitamins are of great importance, even more so in the time of a pandemic. Vitals has been a supplier of vitamins to Sri Sri Ayurveda for several years now.
Vitals vitamins are of high quality and consist of the best absorbable forms available. Where possible the biologically active bodily forms. Sri Sri Ayurveda has chosen for Vitals vitamins because they meet the highest quality requirements. Vitals focuses on high and safe dosages as used in many studies, and on combinations where the dosages of the individual ingredients are well matched. The capsules are of vegetable origin, sometimes supplemented with natural additives from rice.
METHYLCOBALAMINE, THE BIOLOGICALLY ACTIVE FORM OF VITAMIN B12
- high dosage of the biologically active form
- optimal bio availability
- tasty lozenges for absorption through the oral mucosa
- suitable for vegetarians and vegans
Vitamin B12 1000 mcg from Vitals consists of lozenges with the biologically active form methylcobalamin. This is one of the forms of vitamin B12 as it occurs in food and is used by the body.
Many other cheaper vitamin B12 products use cyanocobalamin, a synthetic form of vitamin B12 that does not occur naturally in this form. In this synthetic form, the cobalamin is strongly bound to cyanide, which must first be disconnected and converted when ingested in the body. An extra (unnecessary) step. Cyanide has no further function in the body and will therefore have to be excreted again after ingestion.
With age, the absorption of cobalamines (B12) decreases heavily. Vegetarians and vegans are also often deficient, as the sole intake of cobalamin occurs through the consumption of foods of animal origin.
Methylcobalamin is the metabolically active form, so it is the ideal form of Vitamin B12 to prevent and treat deficiencies.
