Those with digestive problems, vegetarians, vegans and the elderly may have difficulty absorbing sufficient B12. It's essential for production of healthy red blood cells, myelin sheaths of nerves and energy.

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin, which is lacking in the vegan diet. If you are not eating animal products, we strongly suggest you take a B12 supplement. Vitamin B12 deficiency can result in neurological damage. It is particularly important to consider a B12 supplement when pregnant and breastfeeding.

Vitamin B12 is a water soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. It is one of the eight B vitamins. It is normally involved in the metabolism of every cell of the body, especially affecting DNA synthesis and regulation, but also fatty acid synthesis and energy production.

Historically, vitamin B12 was discovered from its relationship to the disease pernicious anemia, an autoimmune disease. Vitamin B12 deficiency can potentially cause severe and irreversible damage, especially to the brain and nervous system. At levels only slightly lower than normal, a range of symptoms such as fatigue, depression, and poor memory may be experienced. Vitamin B12 deficiency can also cause symptoms of mania and psychosis.

B12-like substances are found in certain organisms, including Spirulina (a cyanobacterium) and some algae. These substances are active in tests of B12 activity by highly sensitive antibody-binding serum assay tests, which measure levels of B12 and B12-like compounds in blood. However, these substances do not have B12 biological activity for humans, a fact which may pose a danger to vegans and others who do not ingest B12 producing bacteria, but who nevertheless may show normal "B12" levels in the standard immunoassay which has become the normal medical method for testing for B12 deficiency.

According to the U.K. Vegan Society, the present consensus is that any B12 present in plant foods is likely to be unavailable to humans and so these foods should not be relied upon as safe sources, as the B12 analogues can compete with B12 and inhibit metabolism. Also, vegan humans who eat only plant based foods must ordinarily take special care to supplement their diets accordingly. The only reliable vegan sources of B12 are foods fortified with B12 (including some soy products and some breakfast cereals), and B12 supplements.

Vitamin B12 is essential for healthy red blood cells, energy, nervous system and cognitive function but it cannot be absorbed from food unless the stomach makes ‘intrinsic factor’, which may be reduced as we age, or in those with poor digestion. This delicious powder is absorbed directly from the mouth, avoiding the need for ‘intrinsic factor’.

Vitamin B12 contains the mineral cobalt. It helps to break down protein, carbohydrate & fat and joins with calcium during absorption. It supports iron function, carotene absorption, vitamin A conversion from a beta carotene, DNA & RNA formation and works in cell division. It supports a healthy nervous system, red blood cell growth, brain and liver function, appetite, bones, joints, mood, memory, concentration, sleep, pregnancy, breastfeeding, growth and immunity...

Contains Xylitol. Do not feed Xylitol to dogs. Not suitable for citrus allergy sufferers.
