Vitamin B12 is one of many essential nutrients our body requires on a daily basis. Proper intake is vital for maintaining a healthy nervous system and supporting optimal mood and mental function. Vitamin B12 is also necessary for the formation of red blood cells, and to synthesize DNA. The most well-known benefit of vitamin B12 is its ability to promote healthy energy levels and metabolism.
Although vitamin B12 is water soluble, unlike other water-soluble nutrients, excess vitamin B12 is stored in the liver, kidney and other body tissues. As a result, signs and symptoms of a vitamin B12 deficiency may not become evident for many years. Low vitamin B12 levels typically impact the brain and nervous system first, impairing nerve function. This can impair mental function and cause symptoms like numbness, a feeling of “pins and needles” or burning sensations in the extremities.
B-12 Blast® is a highly absorbable liquid vitamin B12 supplement that tastes delicious. B-12 Blast® combines 1,000mcg vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin) with 400mg of folic acid to promote healthy homocysteine levels while helping to counteract the deleterious effects of elevated homocysteine levels on the arteries. Homocysteine is an amino acid produced in the body that has been linked to hardening and thickening of the arteries. High levels of homocysteine can cause the blood to clot more easily than it should, doubling or even tripling the risk of heart unhealthy condition.
