Supports Energy Production: Vitamin B12 plays a crucial role in energy production within the body. It's involved in converting the food you eat into glucose, which gives you energy [1].

  1. Boosts Cognitive Function: Adequate levels of Vitamin B12 can support a healthy brain by potentially delaying brain atrophy in the elderly, which is associated with memory loss and dementia [2].
  2. Supports Heart Health: Vitamin B12 is critical in the conversion of homocysteine into methionine, reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke [3].
  3. Aids in Red Blood Cell Formation: Vitamin B12 is essential for the production of healthy red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout the body. This process is vital for maintaining overall health and preventing anemia [4].

Methylcobalamin and Cyanocobalamin are two forms of Vitamin B12, but they are not equal in their effectiveness.

  • Methylcobalamin: This is the active form of Vitamin B12 that can be directly used by the body. It participates in the methylation process, which is vital for brain development and the overall functioning of the nervous system [5]. Ethical Nutrition's Vitamin B12 is made from Methylcobalamin, ensuring optimal absorption and utilization.
  • Cyanocobalamin: This is a synthetic form of Vitamin B12, commonly found in low-cost supplements. It's not as bioavailable as Methylcobalamin and the body must convert it into Methylcobalamin for use. Additionally, during this conversion, Cyanocobalamin releases a small amount of cyanide, a toxic substance that needs to be eliminated from the body [6].

Not all sources of Vitamin B12 are created equal. The form and the source of the vitamin can significantly impact its absorption in the body. Ethical Nutrition's Vitamin B12 is designed to be bioavailable, ensuring that your body can effectively absorb and utilize the vitamin.

Vitamin B12 plays a critical role in a process called methylation, an essential biochemical reaction that happens billions of times every second in your body's cells. Methylation is involved in DNA repair, detoxification, hormone production, and more, highlighting the importance of adequate Vitamin B12 levels [7].

Vitamin B12 is vital for everyone, but certain groups, such as the elderly, vegans, vegetarians, and those with digestive disorders, may not get enough from their diet or may have difficulty absorbing it. Supplementing with Ethical Nutrition's Vitamin B12 can help ensure they meet their daily requirements [8].
