Active B12 Lozenge (60 Lozenges)
Why choose Active B12 Lozenge by Seeking Health? Active B12 lozenge provides two active coenzyme forms of Vitamin B12, Methylcobalamin and Adenosylcobalamin. Vitamin B12 is provided at significantly higher potency than the recommended daily allowance (RDA) to bypass usual mechanisms of absorption that rely on intrinsic factor. Consuming high amounts of B12 in the form of a lozenge allow it to be absorbed more readily. These B12 lozenges dissolve in the mouth within a few minutes or may also be swallowed whole if desired.
Key Benefits and Actions of Active B12 Lozenge by Seeking Health:
- Readily absorbed: Absorption of vitamin B12 is facilitated by intrinsic factor, a natural protein produced by the parietal cells of the stomach lining. It may also be absorbed by an alternate mechanism without reliance on intrinsic factor when high amounts of 1,000 mcg or more are taken. Thus, individuals without adequate intrinsic factor can still obtain adequate amounts of B12 if extra amounts are ingested. Bypassing the gastric absorption is possible by taking Active B12 lozenges.
- Active, coenzyme forms: Methylcobalamin is a body-ready form with metabolic benefits that may not be provided by other forms of vitamin B12. Methylcobalamin supports the formation of healthy red blood cells, immune system regulation, nervous system support, cognitive function, and homocysteine regulation. Adenosylcobalamin is the mitochondrial form of B12 and supports energy metabolism and endurance levels. Blood levels of vitamin B12 are not always a reflection of tissue levels and a deficiency of the coenzyme forms might exist in tissues or other body fluids even if an adequate amount of cobalamin is present in circulation. Although cyanocobalamin is the most commonly used form of vitamin B12 in dietary supplements, it must be converted by enzymes into an active coenzyme form to be useful. Nutritional inadequacies, enzyme defects, and tissue abnormalities can reduce the body’s ability to synthesize the active forms of B12.
What makes Active B12 by Seeking Health superior to other Active B12 supplements on the market?
- Great tasting and free of allergens. Active B12 lozenges contain xylitol as a natural sweetening agent and natural orange flavor.
How should this product be used?
- Active B12 Lozenge can be used whenever a need for supplemental vitamin B12 exists. It may be particularly useful for individuals with impaired methylation capacity, including those with elevated homocysteine or neurological impairments.*
