B-12 Lozenge(Item #418)
Vitamin B12 belongs to the class of water soluble B-vitamins. It works with folic acid to make DNA, red blood cells and nerve cells. Many people lack B12 due to poor diet, reduced stomach acid (known to facilitate the absorption of B12), or less intrinsic factor, a key element secreted in our stomachs to absorb B12. It is found naturally in animal sources such as liver, eggs, cheese and meat. Combined with vitamins B6 and folate, B12 helps with balancing homocysteine levels, a key health marker. This nutrient is especially important for older adults who tend to lack B12 in their diet and have less stomach acid secretion to absorb B12. Others who often have higher requirements include vegetarians and those who have undergone gastric surgery.
