Vitamin B12 is most commonly seen in products as cyanocobalamin, the inactive form of B12. It is referred to as inactive because it must first be converted to one of the two active forms in order for it to be useful within the body.
These are methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, with the former regarded as having more important biochemical roles. Herbs of Gold Activated Sublingual B12 contains the active methylcobalamin form of B12 at 1,000mcg (1mg) per tablet. Research has demonstrated that oral supplementation is well tolerated and can be compared to intramuscular injections with regards to efficacy1.
Anyone who has ever had a deficiency in this imortant vitamin and received an intramuscular injection will tell you about the energy rush that follows. This really is a crucial nutrient. Importantly, vegetarians, pescatarians and especially vegans have a limited dietary availability of this nutrient, making supplementation that much more helpful. A review article published in 2014 highlighted the susceptability of vegetarians and vegans to having deficiencies of this vitamin, which was more prevalent in the elderly2. Therefore, people adhering to these dietary patterns may find testing for low levels and/or B12 supplementation beneficial.
Vitamin B12 may assist with myelin generation—required for nerve health— keeping cardiovascular risk markers down (homocysteine), supporting red blood cell synthesis (blood tonic) and for cell growth and replication. Research has demonstrated that Vitamin B12 supplementation in a subset of dementia sufferers that are deficient can lead to dementia reversal, at a dosage of 1,000mcg per day, taken orally3. This just goes to show how important this nutrient is for nerve and brain health.
Herbs of Gold Activated Sublingual B12 1000 is a versatile product that assists with repletion of this important nutrient. Vitamin B12 supplementation is particularly indicated for those whose diets are low and for the elderly. Activated sublingual B12 dissolves under the tongue.
