About Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin that helps support optimal brain and nervous system health and assists in the formation of red blood cells. It is one of the eight B vitamins and is involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body including DNA synthesis and regulation, synthesis of fatty acids, and in energy production. Vitamin B12 is structurally very complex and is produced through bacterial synthesis.

Whole-Food Vitamin B12

Whole-food vitamins are vitamin isolates that are cultured in a blend of yeast, S. cerevisiae being the most common, and other vital nutrients like CoQ10, complex carbohydrates (beta-1,3-glucans and mannan), dietary fiber, SOD (superoxide dismutase) and glutathione (an antioxidant found in yeast that plays a major role in cellular defense mechanisms).

Because many vitamins do not exist naturally in yeast, the appropriate vitamin, Vitamin B12 in this case, is embedded into a food concentrate with close affinity towards that specific vitamin by a proprietary process. Complexation of the vitamin with the food concentrate renders the nutrient more bio-available and this helps direct the nutrient to appropriate sites in the cell. Whole-Food Vitamin B12 is produced by culturing Vitamin B12 (as cyanocobalamin) in a Body-Ready Active Nutrient Matrix™ that transforms the B12 from the poorly bioavailable cyanocobalamin form to a whole-food concentrate with enhanced bioavailability and assimilation. An additional benefit of culturing B12 in this food concentrate is that it is safe, natural, wholesome, and does not have the metallic taste associated with synthetic vitamin isolates and provides individuals who do not wish to take synthetic vitamin isolates a whole-food alternative.
