Why is B-12 absorption a concern for some people?
B-12 is the largest vitamin known and difficult to absorb. Additionally, the gut produces something called intrinsic factor, this helps the body absorb B-12. Without intrinsic factor, B-12 just exits the body. As we age, the availability of intrinsic factor decreases and the risk for B-12 deficiency increases.
Who needs B-12?
Everyone! Some people, more than others, need to pay special attention to their B-12 levels. Those who drink alcohol, take antibiotics, use antacids, smoke, vegetarians and vegans, have trouble sleeping, pregnant and breast-feeding women, the elderly, people who have celiac disease or have difficulty digesting gluten and absorbing nutrients, and people who are affected by harmful organisms may all be advised to keep their B-12 levels in good range.
Does B-12 affect homocysteine levels?
Homocysteine levels are an independent stressor on the cardiovascular system and can be responsible for poor heart and cardiovascular health. The vitamin B6 and folic acid in Unique B-12 Vegetarian Formula work synergistically with vitamin B12 to promote normal homocysteine levels.
