What is Life Pro Vitamin B12?
Life Pro Vitamin B12 is a supplement formulated with vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin, i.e. it cannot be stored in the body and has a large number of properties and functions. Vitamin B12 must be incorporated into the diet, either through food or supplementation, to maintain and guarantee human health.
Vitamin B12 is mainly found in foods of animal origin. For this reason, especially vegans and plant-based diets can be deficient in this vitamin, which is why it must be supplemented correctly and in the right quantity.
Among the most important processes in which vitamin B12 is required, it is essential in relation to the formation of red blood cells, the production and metabolism of different nutrients for energy, as well as contributing to the maintenance of cardio-endothelial and structural health.
What are the properties of vitamin B12?
Maintaining optimal levels of vitamin B12 should be a priority to ensure overall health, and it is a mandatory supplement in any plant-based diet.
Vitamin B12 has very important functions in metabolism, the central nervous system, the functioning of the cardio-endothelial system and so on. It also contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system, red blood cell formation and DNA synthesis. It is also essential in the process of transforming carbohydrates into glucose.
Vitamin B12 from Life Pro is a highly bioavailable supplement, which is non-toxic and suitable for vegans as it is of bacterial origin and the capsule used is vegan. Vitamin B12 deficiency is associated with a form of anaemia known as megaloblastic anaemia.
In the case of the supplemented form, it is also important to choose a form of cyanocobalamin, as it is the most studied form, has no documented toxic dose, and is very stable to physical factors.
If you are on a plant-based diet there are no direct contraindications to the use of this supplement, however, if you are in a pathological condition consult your doctor.
What dose should I take?
Take 2000 mcg of cyanocobalamin twice a week (each capsule containing 1000 mcg).
With few exceptions, vitamin B12 supplementation should be given in two doses of 1000 mcg (1 capsule) twice a week, in order to maintain levels in the correct range and to ensure that there is no need to worry about the range on blood tests.
Administration in two doses (2 separate days of the week) is more efficient than taking it in a single dose.
