Methyl B-12 (1000mcg) Overview
A small, single vitamin can be vital to your health. Vitamin B12 helps protect your nervous system, your heart and your eyes. Jarrow Methyl B-12 contains an easily absorbed and utilized form of B12 called Methylcobalamin. This convenient, lemon-flavored chewable supplement will ensure you never risk Vitamin B12 deficiency. Some studies have found that in the US more than a third of the population has low vitamin B12 levels. Since B12 is mostly found in animal products, dietary supplementation is especially essential for vegans and vegetarians.
Without it, a natural chemical produced by your body called Homocysteine, over-accumulates and can increase your risk for heart disease. Too much of this chemical has also been linked to bone weakness in the elderly. Vitamin B12 also prevents damage to your eyes from excess of another compound called glutamate. Methyl B12's protecting function also includes brain cells and nerve tissue and it also supports better sleep. Protect your body's most important parts with Jarrow's Methyl B-12.
Methyl B-12 (1000mcg) Description from Jarrow
Methylcobalamin (Methyl B-12) is better absorbed and retained than other forms of B12 (such as cyanocobalamin). Methyl B-12 protects nerve tissue and brain cells, and promotes better sleep. Methyl B-12 is a cofactor of methionine synthase, which reduces toxic homocysteine to the essential amino acid methionine. Methylcobalamin also protects eye function against toxicity caused by excess glutamate.
