Be Wise To The Brain And Energy Boosting Benefits Of Vitamin B12
As many as half the UK adult population could be deficient in vitamin B12 and it is the most common nutritional deficiency in the developing world[ii].
Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that is essential for optimal health, performance, and wellbeing. Commonly referred to as the ‘energy’ vitamin, Vitamin B12 is vital for the production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen for energy release, as well as playing a role in healthy digestion, food absorption, carbohydrate and fat metabolism and, even more crucially, ensuring the proper functioning of our brains, hearts, livers and kidneys. It also works with vitamin B6 and folic acid in the body to control homocysteine levels which, if found to be in excess, can increase the risk of stroke, osteoporosis, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. Symptoms of B12 deficiency also include fatigue and lethargy, anaemia, poor concentration and balance, mood swings, breathlessness, tingling in the extremities and sleep disturbances.
Vitamin B12 occurs naturally in meats and other sources of animal proteins (it is not found in plants), and serious deficiencies are rare in healthy individuals who consume a balanced diet. However, vegans, vegetarians, the elderly or those who have had any kind of digestive problems or gastric surgery, may suffer low levels of vitamin B12.
Vitamin B12 is now available in a convenient flavoured spray, in a form most readily used by the body. A quick burst of Vitamin B12 with up to 98% rapidly absorbed through the mouth tissues and delivered straight into the blood stream. Each lightweight tube of Vitamin B12 contains 240 sprays providing accuracy and consistency of dosage in every burst and each tube provides at least a months’ supply.
