Vitamin B12 has earned a reputation for being the ‘energy vitamin’, and for good reason. It aids red blood cell production, the cells responsible for delivering oxygen to our various body tissues. Our tissues then use the oxygen to produce energy, converting it to carbon dioxide in the process which we then exhale. It’s also necessary for DNA formation and maintaining nerve health.
B12 is a water-soluble nutrient, which means our body doesn’t store it – we need continuous intake in order to keep B12 levels up. It’s readily available in animal foods, but those who eat a plant-based diet or are deficient in this vital nutrient may need to use supplements. Symptoms of B12 deficiency can include anemia, the development of health conditions in the small intestines such as Crohn’s or celiac, and immune system dysfunction.
CanPrev’s B12 Methyl drops feature methylcobalamin, the preferred and active form of vitamin B12. Unlike the supplemental B12 alternative, cyanocobalamin, it doesn’t need to be converted by the body in order to be useable, making it faster acting and body-ready
