The active ingredient for Vitamin B12 was extracted from Natural Sources of Methylcobalamin.

Many people take Vitamin B12 in tablet form and may still be deficient. This is because the B12 tablets are less readily absorbed than sublingual B12. For a B12 tablet to be absorbed, two things need to be present. The first is enough stomach acid, and this is where the problem lies for many people. As we get older, we tend to produce less stomach acid, so the elderly need to be especially careful. The second things we need is intrinsic factor. This is something that is also produced by the body and also something that can decline with age. So, once again, the elderly are more at risk. Also people with gastric problems or those that have had gastric bypass surgery will be particularly at risk.

Vitamin B12 also called cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. It is normally involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body, especially affecting DNA synthesis and regulation, but also fatty acid synthesis and energy production.

Vitamin B12 is needed to prevent anemia. It aids folic acid in regulating the formation of red blood cells and helps in the utilization of iron. This vitamin is also required for proper digestion, absorption of food, the synthesis of protein and the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. It aids in cell formation and cellular longevity.

A vitamin B12 deficiency can be caused by malabsorption, which is most common in elderly people and in those with digestive disorders. Deficiency can cause abnormal gait, chronic fatigue, constipation, depression, digestive disorders, dizziness, drowsiness, enlargement of the liver, the tongue, irritability, labored breathing, memory loss, neurological damage and palpitation. Strict vegetarians must remember that they require vitamin B12 supplementation, as this vitamin is found almost exclusively in animal tissues.

Anti-gout medications, anticoagulant drugs and potassium supplements may block the absorption of vitamin B12 from the digestive tract.
