Methyl-B12 Lozenge (60 Tablets)
Methyl-B12 Lozenge provides 5,000 mcg of vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin, the active form especially useful for supporting neurological function and homocysteine metabolism. These fast-dissolving tablets contain a high concentration of vitamin B12.
Studies show that B12 can be absorbed by passive diffusion across intestinal membranes when intake is greatly increased. Methyl-B12 Lozenge is a good choice for those requiring extra vitamin B12. Tablets should be dissolved in the mouth and swallowed. Scored tablets contain natural cherry flavor and xylitol and mannitol as sweetening agents.
Studies indicate that methylcobalamin, a coenzyme form of vitamin B12, may be better utilized and better retained in the body due to its methyl structure. Certain populations, including the elderly, immune-compromised, use of proton-pump inhibitors, and strict vegetarians are often at risk for vitamin B12 deficiency, either due to low dietary intake or impaired absorption. Intrinsic factor, a protein produced by cells in the stomach lining, is needed by the intestines to absorb vitamin B12 efficiently. Certain populations, including the elderly and those unable to effectively produce intrinsic factor due to certain medications, can be more susceptible to B12 deficiency. Methyl-B12 Lozenge provides vitamin B12 in a lozenge form that bypasses the stomach and does not require intrinsic factor for absorption.
