-  What is Vitamin B-12 and why is it important?
Vitamin B-12 is a water soluble vitamin needed to make blood cells and maintain a healthy nervous system. Vitamin B-12 (as cyanocobalamin) comes from dairy, meat, seafood and eggs and is required to maintain critical metabolic function throughout the body. B-12 supports red blood cell formation, healthy levels of homocysteine for healthy blood flow and is necessary to produce DNA. It also supports myelin sheath integrity for healthy nerves and brain function.


-  Why do we need to supplement with B-12?
Human nutrient absorption decreases with time as part of the normal aging process. Deficiencies of B-12 are usually the result of poor absorption rather than from poor dietary intake.


-  Who can benefit most from B-12?
Everyone could benefit, but it is particularly beneficial to both the elderly and vegans who do not eat animal foods.


-  What is the advantage of vitamin B-12 (as cyanocobalamin)?
Cyanocobalamin can be converted by the body to any of the active B-12 variations the body needs. It is also seen as one of the most stable forms of vitamin B-12.


-  Are there any other vitamin B-12 benefits?
Vitamin B-12 is important for the production of SAMe (S-Adenosyl-l-methionine), which is the body’s main methyl donor. SAMe is present in every living cell in the body, however levels of SAMe decline as we age. SAMe plays a role in methylation, which is important to healthy metabolism. Many compounds that are important to health in the brain, liver and joints cannot be activated or perform their functions unless they receive a methyl group (CH3).Vitamin B-12 and SAMe also provide joint support and positive mood support.*
