- Vegetarian product

Why take a B12 lozenge supplement?
Vitamin B12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin that is commonly found in a variety of foods such as fish, shellfish, meat, and dairy products. Vitamin B12 is frequently used in combination with other B vitamins in a vitamin B complex formulation. It helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and is also needed to make DNA, the genetic material in all cells.
Vitamin B12 is the most difficult to absorb of all vitamins requiring a unique sequence of enzymes. Vitamin B12 is bound to the protein in food. Hydrochloric acid in the stomach releases B12 from protein during digestion. Once released, B12 combines with a substance called intrinsic factor (IF) before it is absorbed into the bloodstream.
With low stomach acid being common, there is a risk of poor absorption of vitamin B12. The lozenge delivers sub-lingual absorption of vitamin B12 which helps to ensure that this vital nutrient is absorbed. The combination of vitamin B12 with folic acid and active B6 supports methylation and could be especially important before and during pregnancy, as well as those with elevated homocysteine levels.
This product is suitable for vegans.
