Why vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 activates the natural energy in the body and has a positive impact on the immune system. The human body cannot make this vitamin itself and depends on vitamin B12 from the diet.
Vitamin B12 also called cobalamin, is water-soluble. The name comes from the fact that vitamin B12 contains the mineral cobalt. Cobalt is an important trace element for humans and animals. Vitamin B12 is mainly found in animal products such as (organ) meat and to a lesser extent in fish and chicken. Vitamin B12 can also be found in plant products, such as dried seaweed and algae, but is largely inactive.
Normally, a vitamin B12 supply of 2 to 5 milligrams is stored in the liver. When we are under great pressure for a long time, for example at work or in our private lives, it can be that we intervene on our reserves. Also by using certain medications, following a vegetarian or vegan diet, or with advancing age, the vitamin B12 supply sometimes cannot be replenished quickly enough by the diet. Thus, a vitamin B12 deficiency can occur. It may then make sense to replenish the reserve supply of vitamin B12 with the help of a supplement.
The absorption of vitamin B12 is complex and is prepared in the stomach, where vitamin B12 is separated from proteins in the diet by stomach acid. In the small intestine, vitamin B12 is then “attached” to the intrinsic factor (IF). IF is a protein produced by the stomach lining. It protects the vitamin and transports it through the small intestine wall. In the elderly, the stomach wall makes less IF, putting them at higher risk for vitamin B12 deficiency due to decreased absorption.
There are four known forms of vitamin B12: methylcobalamin, adenosylcobalamin, hydroxocobalamin, and cyanocobalamin. The last is the synthetic variant of vitamin B12, it is cheap and easy to make and is therefore widely used to enrich food. Our body must first activate this form in order to use it. This activation does not always run as efficiently or at the desired pace. Then a supplement with the biologically active forms of vitamin B12, which are directly available to the body, offers a solution.
In addition to its important health benefits on our energy balance, vitamin B12 has other health effects:
– Vitamin B12 contributes to the normal function of the immune system
– Vitamin B12 contributes to the reduction of fatigue and tiredness
– Vitamin B12 contributes to normal psychological function
– Vitamin B12 contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system
– Vitamin B12 contributes to the normal metabolism of homocysteine
– Vitamin B12 plays a role in the cell division process
The benefits of Bonusan Vitamin B12 active 1500 mcg
Bonusan Vitamin B12 active 1500 mcg contains 750 mcg of methylcobalamin, 750 mcg of adenosylcobalamin and 200 mcg of 5-MTHF. Folate, also known as vitamin B11, is closely related to vitamin B12. Both support the immune system and contribute to the reduction of fatigue, normal psychological function and normal homocysteine metabolism. In addition, folate contributes to normal blood formation and resistance to stress.
Bonusan Vitamin B12 active 1500 mcg is in the form of a tablet; absorption takes place through the gastrointestinal process. This is an excellent basic product to maintain or supplement the vitamin B12 supply. The recommended dose of Bonusan Vitamin B12 active 1500 mcg is one to three tablets per day taken with a meal. If a lozenge is preferred, we recommend our 1000 mcg lozenges.
High-quality thanks to the active form of vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 active at 1500 mcg contains the biologically active variants of vitamin B12, methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin. In addition to the active forms of vitamin B12, in this product, we use the patented glucosamine salt (5-MTHF) from Quatrefolics®. This is an active form of folate that no longer needs to be metabolized by the body. The benefits of using Quatrefolics® are that it has improved bioavailability and is better absorbed than other folate forms.
Suitable for reducing fatigue
The body may need to replenish reserve supplies or make vitamin B12 readily available to tissues. Vitamin B12 deficiencies are observed in all age groups. Vegetarians and vegans also have an extra need for B12 since their intake of this vitamin through the diet are very limited.
Bonusan Vitamin B12 active 1500 mcg is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It may be used during pregnancy and lactation.
