The Active B12 Lozenge with L-5-MTHF by Seeking Health supports cellular health, conversion of amino acid homocysteine to methionine and mental and emotional stability. It also helps support and maintain healthy energy levels and growth and development.
Active B12 Lozenge With L-5-MTHF uses 800 mcg of pure non-racemic l-methylfolate in an easy-to deliver lozenge. Active B12 along with L-5-MTHF delivers two active coenzyme forms of Vitamin B12, Methylcobalamin and Adenosylcobalamin (the mitochondrial form of vitamin B12) along with 5-methylfolate, the body’s most prevalent form of folate in plasma. There are no racemic forms of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate used in this formulation. The lozenges dissolve in the mouth within a few minutes or may also be swallowed whole if desired. However, this supplement may be better absorbed when slowly dissolved under the tongue rather than swallowed whole. This Active B12 with L-5-MTHF supplement may be useful for individuals who may have an increased risk for vitamin B12/folate deficiency or the elderly, vegetarians, and individuals with ulcers, Crohn’s disease, bacterial overgrowth, and other gastrointestinal disorders. This dietary supplement may be useful for individuals who may have difficulty absorbing vitamin B12 and folate and are looking for a safe and efficient method to enhance their supply of these bioactive forms of nutrients. Dietary B12 can be reliably obtained only from animal products and is a singularly difficult vitamin to absorb.
