Vitamin B12 is essential for energy production and for keeping the brain and nervous system functioning into old age. Yet deficiencies of B12 are widespread in the U.S., especially among older people.
Supplemental B12 is a proven way for people who are deficient to raise their serum B12 to healthy levels. Since vitamin B12 is available almost exclusively from animal products, it is crucial that vegetarians supplement B12 in their diet. People who are using anticoagulant medications should also be sure to supplement vitamin B12, as these medications may block the absorption of B12 in the digestive track.
Vitamin B12 comes in several different forms, but only methylcobalamin has been used with consistent results. Methylcobalamin is the type of vitamin B12 that is administered to people with B12 deficiencies, often as injections. Studies have shown that high amounts of methylcobalamin are needed to regenerate neurons and support the nervous system by protecting the myelin sheath that protects axons and peripheral nerves.
Our premium grade MAX-B12TM formula is made with 100% methylcobalamin and features a sublingual lozenge delivery system, which ensures optimal absorption and maximum benefits. Simply place the small lozenge under your tongue and B12 will be absorbed rapidly and efficiently into your blood stream so that you can get the full benefits of supplementation in less time. Each pleasant tasting lozenge provides 1,000 mcg of active B12 to make it easy to customize your dosage according to your needs. The minimum daily dosage most experts recommend is 1,000 - 5,000 mcg. B12 has no known toxicity, so you can safely take more to address a deficiency or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.
