|Pleasant tasting high potency levels of vitamins B12, folic acid and B6|
B12 2000 by Biotics Research is pleasantly tasting and each lozenge supplies high potency levels of vitamins B12, folic acid and B6. Each is important in a wide range functions, and the status of each impacted by a number of pharmaceutical compound. B12-2000™ Lozenges are especially important for women who are pregnant or who are wishing to become pregnant.
Vitamin B12 deficiency is increasingly common given the Standard American Diet (SAD), and its prevalence has been found to increase with age. Vitamin B12, an essential vitamin, is an indispensable coenzyme for two very important metabolic enzymes: methylmalonyl-CoA, which is involved in fatty acid metabolism, and methionine synthase, which is required in nucleic acid synthesis and methylation reactions. Folic acid is required for DNA synthesis as well as lipid metabolism. Vitamin B6 is vital to numerous functions including immune support, gluconeogenesis, red cell metabolism, as well as lipid and neurotransmitter synthesis, which affects both nervous system and hormone function. The status of all three vitamins has been shown to be negatively impacted as a result of interactions of commonly prescribed drugs, including birth control pills. Deficiencies have been linked to serious health challenges such as neural tube defects. B12-2000™ Lozenges is a supplement that patients can’t wait to take. Each great tasting B12-2000™ Lozenges supplies 2,000 mcg of vitamin B12 (as hydroxycobalamin), 800 mcg of Folate (as folic acid), and 2 mg of vitamin B6 (as pyridoxal-5- phosphate). It has been hypothesized that the supplementation of methylcobalamin in the presence of mercury (amalgam fillings) could lead to the formation of methyl mercury. Since B12-2000™ Lozenges were designed to be dissolved in the mouth, Biotics Research has chosen to utilize hydroxycobalamin as the preferred form of vitamin B12 for oral dosing.
Why you may need B12-2000 Lozenges
Homocysteine is an amino acid found in the blood. It is an intermediate that occurs when the body is low in certain factors that convert one much needed amino acid (methionine) to another (cysteine). Studies have shown that too much homocysteine in the blood (plasma) is related to a higher risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease and potentially many other conditions of chronic inflammation. Other evidence suggests that homocysteine may have a serious effect on atherosclerosis (hardening or narrowing of the arteries) by damaging the inner lining of arteries and promoting blood clots. Homocysteine levels are strongly influenced by diet, as well as by genetic factors. The dietary components with the greatest effects are folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12. Folic acid, B6 and B12 vitamins help break down homocysteine in the body and complete its conversion to cysteine. Several studies have found that higher blood levels of B12 and Folic acid correlate to lower concentrations of homocysteine. Other recent evidence shows that low blood levels of these essential vitamins are linked to a higher risk of fatal coronary heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Why your Healthcare Professional recommends B12-2000 Lozenges from Biotics Research Corporation.
B12-2000 are a naturally flavored B12 lozenge that also contain synergistic levels of both vitamin B6 and Folic acid, all of which are key cofactors needed to reduce homocysteine levels. B12-2000 Lozenges are an oral B12 supplement designed to dissolve in the patient’s mouth. Do not chew them. Studies have demonstrated that, if allowed to dissolve in the mouth, oral forms of vitamin B12 are extremely effective. This allows the nutrients to by pass digestion and enter directly into the blood stream, similar to injections but without the needle.
One (1) lozenge each day as a dietary supplement or as otherwise directed by a healthcare professional.
