Beta-12 is a high potency, comprehensive Vitamin B12 formula containing 3mg of methylcobalamin with 1 mg of Folinic Acid cofactor per tablet. 60 tablets per bottle.
Intensive Nutrition's Beta12 formula contains methylcobalamin, a B12 that is superior in absorption to regular cobalamin. Beta-12's 3mg of Methylcobalamin with Folinic Acid is a therapeutic formula that is suggested for supporting heart health and supporting cognitive health*.
What is Methylcobalamin?
Methylcobalamin is a bioactive coenzyme form of B12, meaning that is ready to be used by the body. Within cells, methylcobalamin is responsible for "reactivation" of folate. This reactivation is crucial -- without it, the body can't use folic acid and all the benefits that folic acid provides to the body.
Who should consider Beta-12?
Beta-12 supports the body's healthy response to stress and fatigue and supports a healthy response to restrictive nutritional intake including for those who choose restrictive diets (vegetarian/vegan diets)*. Beta-12 supports healthy uptake of B12 and Beta-12 supports heart health*. Lastly, many common medications deplete body B12 levels as a consequence Beta-12 may help support healthy B12 levels*.
Questions about B12
What does B12 do in the body?
Vitamin B-12 (cobalamin) is involved in the functioning of the nervous system, in proper blood oxygenation and therefore energy production. B12 is also required for proper nerve cell functioning, DNA replication, the production of SAMe and in reducing blood homocysteine. B12 works in conjunction with other B vitamins, specifically Folic Acid and B6. With Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 helps support cognitive function.
Can't I just get B12 from my diet?
The following foods contain the highest concentrations of Vitamin B12: clams, oysters, mussels, liver, caviar, octopus, fish, crab and lobster, beef, lamb, cheese, eggs. However, B12 is easily depleted by stress and many common medications and individuals with restricted diets (low cholesterol, low fat, vegetarian and vegan) usually do not consume enough Vitamin B12.
Why is our slow dissolving formula a better delivery for methylcobalamin?
Intensive Nutrition tablets are designed to be slowly dissolved in the mouth. This is particularly important for B Vitamins and methylcobalamin which is unstable when ingested. Slow-dissolving delivery ensures a slower metabolism of methylcobalamin allowing for greater bioavailability.*
How to use Beta-12
