Low energy, fatigue, lack of appetite, tingling and numbness in the extremities, lightheadedness, or abdominal pain may all signal low levels of Vitamin B-12.

Vitamin B-12 is a key component in the composition of red blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body and when the blood is low in red cells, symptoms like those above can result. Fortunately, it is easy to supplement the diet with Vitamin B-12 lozenges to counteract the deficiency.

Vitamin B-12 deficiency can occur for several reasons. First, as we age, the intestines do a less effective job of absorbing the nutrient from the food we eat. Secondly, the primary food sources containg vitamin B-12 are meat, eggs, and diary so vegans and vegetarians are at greater risk of developing a deficiency. Thirdly, individuals who have had gastric bypass surgery or other procedures involving the digestive tract may be see levels decline.

Supplements like multivitamins often contain B-12, but usually it is not absorbed well in this form. Injections are effective but require a doctor’s office visit and are painful. Researchers have concluded that sublingual (“under the tongue”) delivery is a very effective and inexpensive means of delivering the vitamin. When placed under the tongue or between the cheek and gum, the lozenge dissolves and releases B-12 into the blood stream in as little as 15 minutes.

Vitabase Methyl B-12 uses the coenzyme form of B-12, methylcobalamin, the most bio-available and active form of B-12. Most supplements (including one widely advertised on TV) use cyanocobalamin which the liver must first convert to methylcobalamin.

  • Improved Energy: Because of its role in red blood cell production, taking Vitamin B-12 may help improve energy levels.
  • Heart Health: Vitamin B-12 combines with Folic Acid and Vitamin B-6 to lower levels of homocysteine in the blood. All three vitamins are included in this one supplement
  • Memory and mental sharpness: Vitamin B-12 plays a key role in the nervous system’s function.

Methyl B-12 is vegetarian. It contains no added salt, dairy, yeast, wheat, corn, soy, preservatives, or artificial color or flavors.
