This supplement contains up to 100 times the amount of B12 usually found in multi B complex supplements.
Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin), along with folic acid, builds red blood cells and homocysteine levels. B12 increases energy levels, stimulates utilization of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, and aids with synthesis of DNA and RNA. Intrinsic factor must be present in the stomach to allow for the absorption of B12. Some patients do not have this factor. However, this sublingual form of B12 bypasses any stomach problems and allows for the fast absorption of B12 and sublingual folic acid (also available on this site).
