Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient for many body systems. It's required for proper neurological function and DNA synthesis. Together with folate, vitamin B12 helps in the formation of red blood cell and the maintenance of normal homocysteine levels, thereby supporting heart health.
Vitamin B12 is present in foods of animal origin, including dairy products and eggs. Thus, vegetarians are more prone to a deficiency of this important nutrient. In addition, older adults, and those with reduced levels of stomach acidity have difficulty absorbing vitamin B12 from dietary sources. As a result, vitamin B12 deficiency is common.
Methylcobalamin is a metabolically active form of vitamin B12. In some people, the liver may not convert cyanocobalamin, the common supplemental form of vitamin B12, into adequate amounts of methylcobalamin.
Vitamin B12 is notoriously difficult to absorb by the gut. Liposomal technology can dramatically boost nutrient absorption. The small and stable liposomes of Quicksilver's proprietary delivery system start absorbing as soon as they hit your mouth and bring the power of intravenous therapy into convenient oral application.
