Hydroxy B12 – 1mg
An active intermediate form of vitamin B12
- Readily converted into active B12
- Promotes cardiovascular health
- Supports the nerves and detoxification
- Superior to conventional cyanocobalamin
Vitamin B12 plays an essential role in red blood cell formation, cell metabolism, and nerve function. A deficiency in vitamin B12 has been identified as one of the risk factors for several conditions. Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is one of the most complex vitamins in existence. It helps support the body’s nerve and blood cells health, provides methylation support, and helps make DNA, the genetic material in all cells.
Because the human body does not make vitamin B12 or store it for long periods of time, it is important to supplement with this vitamin in order to stay healthy. B12 deficiencies are particularly common among vegetarians, with one German study reporting that only 5.3% of vegetarians meet the recommended intake of B12. You can find B12 in animal-based foods, such as eggs, fish, meat, and poultry; items that have been fortified; and in supplements.
Vitamin B12 also helps support the body’s ability to rid itself of cyanide from low-level exposure from environmental toxins while delivering the essential benefits of vitamin B12, before the body can use it.
AOR´s Hydroxy B12 supplement harnesses the power of hydroxocobalamin, an active and useful form of B12, in a convenient lozenge.
Hydroxy B12 – 1mg is hydroxocobalamin, a unique form of vitamin B12, which is more readily converted into the coenzyme forms than conventional cyanocobalamin. This allows Hydroxy B12 to serve as an effective broad-spectrum form of vitamin B12.*
AOR™ guarantees that all ingredients have been declared on the label. Made without wheat, gluten, nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, sulfites, mustard, soy, dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish or any animal byproduct.
