Vitamin B12 is an essential water-soluble nutrient for the normal function of several body systems, including the cardiovascular, nervous, and digestive systems. It also helps support liver function and the detoxification process. A diet without adequate B12 can adversely affect the production of basic building blocks, like RNA and DNA, but also production of red blood cells.
Research shows that many people have difficulties metabolizing and absorbing B-12, especially when digestive and/or intestinal functioning is suboptimal. For these people, intraoral liposomal delivery is the best method (besides intravenous therapy) for achieving rapid shifts in blood levels of this key nutrient.
Here are people who are definitely in dire need of Vitamin B12:
- Patients with gastrointestinal disorders (including those with or have had H. pylori infections)
- The elderly
- Vegans and vegetarians – even when they consciously try to eat Vitamin B12 fortified foods (shown in recent studies)
- Hematological disorders (especially pernicious anemia)
- Osteoporosis and bone health issues
- Fertility issues
- Vascular disorders
- Neurological or neuropsychiatric conditions (studies have established a link between Vitamin B12 deficiency and depression)
Certain prescription drugs, like Metformin and proton pump inhibitors, can also induce a B12 deficiency with continued use. Patients who have undergone a gastrointestinal bypass surgery are also at risk for deficiency of B12 and other key nutrients.
Methylcobalamin is an active form of B12 (one of two coenzyme forms) and the only form that can participate in homocysteine metabolism. B12 is one of a handful of key nutrients that supports the methylation process, which has far-reaching implications for the support of healthy bodily functioning and detoxification. The nano-sized liposomes of Quicksilver Delivery Systems™ achieve rapid absorption and improve oral uptake of B12 for those patients struggling with nerve, brain, energy and digestive assimilation challenges. It’s unlike any B12 product you’ve used before!
