Get Vitamin B-12 for proper red blood cell formation

Vitamin B-12 exists in several forms and contains the mineral cobalt, therefore it is also called cobalamin. A water-soluble vitamin, Vitamin B-12 plays a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system and the formation of red blood cells in your body. Naturally bound to protein in foods, Vitamin B-12 is released by the activity of hydrochloric acid and gastric protease in the stomach. This process is eliminated when a synthetic Vitamin B-12 is consumed.

How does Vitamin B-12 work?

Free Vitamin B12 then combines with intrinsic factor, a glycoprotein secreted by the stomach's parietal cells, and the resulting complex undergoes absorption within the distal ileum by receptor-mediated endocytosis. Click here to learn more about the importance of Vitamin B-12 and here to how to optimally consume it.

Vitamin B-12 has been used to treat pernicious anaemia, a serious type of anaemia that is due to vitamin B-12 deficiency, found mostly in older people. It is also used to treat memory loss; Alzheimer’s disease; improve mood, energy, concentration and the immune system. It is also used for heart disease, diabetes, depression, mental disorders and AIDS patients. Look at iprice’s offering on Vitamin B-12 supplements now!

Clinicians Vitamin B12 Oral Drops provide the methylcobalamin form of Vitamin B12. Each drop supplies 50mcg of Vitamin B12.Cyanacobalamin is the most commonly supplemented form of Vitamin B12. It is usually supplemented orally or as an intramuscular injection. However, nutritional problems, enzyme defects and pathological changes to tissues can all impact on the way in which cyanacobalamin is processed in the body. Oral forms of Vitamin B12 supplements have been shown to be as effective as injection forms, as the cobalamin is absorbed through the mucosal lining of the mouth. Evidence indicates that Vitamin B12 from methycobalamin is utilised more efficiently than any other form of Vitamin B12.Methycobalamin has also been shown to stay in tissue longer than other forms of Vitamin B12. Signs of Vitamin B12 deficiency include: numbness, a sensation of pins and needles, a burning sensation in the feet and sometimes diarrhoea.

Vitamin B12, feeding your body with nutrients that it needs

One thing that the doctor would recommend you to take even though you are as healthy as a horse are vitamins. These vitamins are packed with essential nutrients that your body needs in order to work properly. Some of the famous vitamins include Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and also Vitamin K. Some are water soluble which are needed more frequently as they do not stay in the body while the others best friends with water. Not all vitamins are found in the racks of your local drug store as some can be in your food – fruits, vegetables, potatoes, grains, milk and dairy products. With that being said, the vitamin that we will be discussing today is Vitamin B12, a family member of Vitamin B.

Vitamin B12, what is it?

Vitamin B12, as the name indicates, is a part of the Vitamin B complex and just like the other Vitamin B, this particular vitamin is directly involved in energy metabolism and other related biological processes. However, this is where their ties end.

  • Vitamin B12 can be stored in your body while most of the other vitamin B do not.
  • Other than Vitamin B12, all the other Vitamin B are easily absorbed into your body.
  • Vitamin B12 has the lowest daily requirement compared to all the other Vitamin B.
  • Vitamin B12 is the only vitamin to contain a metal element (cobalt).

Vitamin B12 helps keep your body’s nerve and blood cells healthy and makes up the DNA, the genetic material found in all your cells. The amount of this particular vitamin that you need in your body depends on your age.

  • Birth to 6 Months – 0.4 mcg
  • 7 to 12 months – 0.5 mcg
  • 1-3 years old – 0.9 mcg
  • 4-8 years old – 1.2 mcg
  • 9-13 years old – 1.8 mcg
  • 14-18 years old – 2.4 mcg
  • Adults – 2.4 mcg
  • Pregnant teens and women – 2.6 mcg
  • Breastfeeding teens and women – 2.8 mcg

Getting your Vitamin B12 supplies

Vitamin B12 is naturally found in a wide variety of animal food and is added to some fortified foods. You can get the dose that you need by eating a variety of food which includes:

  • Beef liver and clams
  • Fish, meat, poultry, eggs and other dairy products
  • Certain cereals, nutritional yeasts and other food products that are fortified with vitamins B12.

You can also get your dose of Vitamin B12 from your dietary supplements as it can be found in almost all multivitamins. If you are not sure, you can always check the supplement facts label to determine the amount of B12 that is provided.

The importance of Vitamin B12

When your body lacks vitamin B12, you might suffer from

  • Anemia (having less red blood cells compared to the normal number)
  • Extreme tiredness
  • Energy deficiency
  • Pins and needles (paraesthesia)
  • Heart palpitations and shortness of breath
  • Pale skin
  • Red and sore tongue
  • Constipation and loss of appetite
  • Vision loss
  • Mental problem like depression, memory loss or drastic behavioural change.

If you think that these symptoms are visible on your or your loved ones, its best to consult your doctor for the right procedures and treatments.

To prevent deficiency of Vitamin B12, you can now get your recommended dose exclusively from iprice.
