VITAMIN B12 PLUS
Vitamin B12 was the first product that we offered under our Vegavero brand, so it’s one that is very close to our hearts. After lots of research and tests run, we have now found a combination of exceptional raw materials that make our B12 PLUS capsules so special!
With active forms of Vitamin B12
Our product contains the two active forms of vitamin B12 - methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin. While methylcobalamin is especially needed in our central nervous system (CNS), which is responsible for our thought processes and muscle control, adenosylcobalamin is especially important for our peripheral nervous system (PNS), which controls our breathing and digestion.
We have also opted for the active and particularly stable forms of vitamin B6 and folic acid: the vitamin B6 form P-5-P and the folic acid form 5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid.
The active form of the B vitamins can be immediately absorbed and used by our body. In a complex process, our liver converts other forms into the active form.
We have consciously chosen to combine our product with certain B vitamins and choline. Not only does each vitamin have a number of positive effects on our body, but the interaction of B12, B6, folic acid, and choline strengthens the positive effects of each individual vitamin. They all support each other in related metabolic processes.
Breakdown of Homocysteine
For example, an important metabolic process in which vitamins B6, B9, B12 and choline interact is the breakdown of the amino acid homocysteine. An increased level of homocysteine is harmful and can damage our blood vessels and nerves. Along with choline, the three B vitamins convert the harmful homocysteine into useful amino acid methionine
What are the benefits?
Furthermore, B6, B9 and B12 contribute to the normal functioning of our immune system, to reduce fatigue, to normal blood formation and to normal functioning of the nervous system. Among other things, choline is important for normal fat metabolism and maintaining normal liver function.
