As we age, our ability to absorb B12 decreases. While B12 does not directly increase energy, it helps support energy producing pathways. We use the active form methylcobalamin for increase bioavailability.See All Products
Below we've broken down the main functions of our Vitamin B-12 500mcg and the benefits it can provide.
Low Vitamin B12 levels causes a reduction in red blood cells which can lead to megaloblastic anemia. Adequate B12 supplementation helps the body produce red blood cells.
Since B vitamins play a role in energy production, Vitamin B12 supplementation may provide an energy boost when deficient.
Vitamin B12 deficiency has been linked to memory loss. Supplementation has been shown to improve memory performance and cognitive function.
Adequate levels of B12 play an important role in energy production, neurological function, and red blood cell health.
