B12-2000 Lozenges by Biotics Research offer a pleasant tasting way to boost your vitamin B12 levels. Each lozenge supplies highly potent dosages of vitamin B12‚ folic acid‚ and vitamin B6. Each of these B vitamins is important for a wide range of bodily functions. This supplement are especially helpful for women who are pregnant or trying to conceive‚ because of the increased need for folic acid and other B complex vitamins during pregnancy.
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in some foods‚ such as meat and sea vegetables. It’s also added to certain foods‚ such as fortified cereals and breads. Since it contains the mineral cobalt‚ vitamin B12 compounds are collectively called cobalamins. Deficiencies are rare‚ but can affect the red blood cells and nervous system when they occur.
Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate‚ a water-soluble B vitamin that is found naturally in food. Folate was named after the Latin word for leaf‚ folium; this may be because folate is abundant in leafy vegetables. Folate is crucial for fetal development during the early stages of pregnancy. This is why most experts recommend that women of childbearing age supplement with folic acid before they even know they are pregnant. In addition to pregnant women‚ those with gastrointestinal issues that cause malabsorption and those with excessive alcohol intake are encouraged to supplement with folic acid in order to avoid a folate deficiency.
Vitamin B6 is another water-soluble vitamin that is found naturally in many foods‚ such as meat‚ beans‚ and fish. It is a coenzyme that is involved in more than 100 reactions within the body‚ mostly those related to protein metabolism; however‚ it is also involved in glycogenolysis‚ immune function and hemoglobin formation. Most healthy individuals get adequate vitamin B6 from their diet‚ but certain people are at increased risk‚ especially if they have kidney problems. This vitamin may support cardiovascular health‚ boost cognitive functioning‚ and alleviate undesirable symptoms that are associated with premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
Your body is unable to store these nutrients for long periods of time‚ so that’s why a supplement like Biotics Research’s B12-2000 is essential. Take one lozenge daily‚ unless otherwise advised by your doctor. Each bottle contains 60 lozenges.
