Garden of Life - Vitamin Code® B12
Although the human body does store vitamin B12, it is the most common nutritional deficiency in the developing world and possibly in the U.S. (reports the August 2005 issue of the Harvard Health Letter) Essential to protect the body against anemia and support a healthy central nervous system, vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin involved in the metabolism of every cell of the body. Helping to support the body's own production of energy through its role in the metabolism of food, vitamin B12 helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and and is also needed to make DNA, the genetic material in all cells.

The original isolated vitamin added to the RAW B12 product is methylcobalamin, not cyanocobalamin.
"The Vitamins and Minerals that are in our Vitamin Code Products are in a whole-food form made with RAW Food-Created Nutrients. The Vitamin Code Vitamin RAW B-12™ is delivered in ‘Cobalamin’ form, just like it is in a whole food along with its naturally occurring cofactors. It is food so it will absorbed in the body like food. The RAW Food-Created Nutrients process utilizes a single isolated vitamin or mineral that is fed to the yeast or probiotic. A specific peptide designed for that particular nutrient is then introduced in order to allow the nutrient to be metabolized (or absorbed) through the yeast's cell wall. This process mimics nature, just like when a plant takes an inorganic mineral salt that is naturally occurring in the soil (selenium for example), and absorbs it into its roots, the plant becomes rich in selenium. This process is conducted with two distinct organisms - S. cerevisiae (baker's yeast) and L. bulgaricus (probiotic culture used in traditional yogurt recipes which is non-dairy). Cultivated with their unique Code Factors intact, the RAW Food-Created Nutrients in Vitamin Code formulas enable natural recognition of nutrients by your body, just as nature intended. Code Factors are the known and yet to be discovered synergistic compounds found in food and are necessary for proper nutrient delivery. Providing these Code Factors infuses the essential elements of whole-foods that the body thrives upon."
