B12-ND™ is a rich live source of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin, which plays an important role in supplying essential methyl groups for protein and DNA synthesis. Vitamin B12 supports nervous system health and the formation of blood, fatty acids and nucleic acids. This advanced formula provides B12 support for vegetarians, vegans and the elderly who often experience B12 deficiencies.
Vitamin B12 is bound to the protein in foods we eat and liberated in the stomach during digestion by Hydrochloric acid. Once released, vitamin B12 combines with intrinsic factor before it is absorbed into the bloodstream. This is one of many reasons why HCL is so essential to for digestion.
Low levels of B12 have been reported in the elderly, vegan and vegetarian diets, and patients with Alzheimer’s disease. Johns Hopkins University reported that women with breast cancer tend to have lower vitamin B12 levels in their blood serum than do women without breast cancer. Vitamin B12 has been heavily studied as reducing high homocysteine levels in the blood; high homocysteine is a risk factor for CVD, Atherosclerosis and myocardial infraction.
B12-ND is a unique probiotic derived from fermented vegan live food source of methylcobalamin. It outperforms cheap manufactured brands that contain synthetic cyanocobalamin, which is difficult for the body to absorb.
