What is Life Pro Vitamin B12?
Life Pro Vitamin B12 is a supplement formulated with highly bioavailable vitamin B12.
Vitamin B12 is involved in a number of functions and processes in the body; it contributes to the maintenance of cardio-endothelial, structural and neurological health, and is necessary for the production of red blood cells and to prevent one of the different types of anaemia.
Life Pro Vitamin B12 is suitable for vegans. Each capsule provides 2000 mcg of vitamin B12.
What is it good for?
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin with essential characteristics, i.e. it must be incorporated into the diet to maintain and guarantee human health. Vitamin B12 intake in diets high in animal products is usually covered, but in the case of plant-based diets, such as strict vegetarianism, it must be safely supplemented. In addition, in non-vegetarian dietary patterns such as ovo-lacto-vegetarianism or in diets where the consumption of animal foods is occasional, supplementation may be indicated.
Vitamin B12 should not be neglected, as it has very important functions in the metabolism, the nervous system, the functioning of the cardio-endothelial system and a long etcetera, so maintaining it at optimum levels should be a priority in order to guarantee overall health, and it is an obligatory supplement in any plant-based diet.
As for its origin, vitamin B12 has a bacterial origin, which means that it is not extracted from animal materials, something which, together with the use of a vegan capsule, makes this product suitable for consumption by this population.
In the case of vitamin B12, when determining and selecting a supplement based on the highest quality criteria, it is important to ensure that it comes from the source mentioned above, as vegetable sources such as certain algae not only have analogues of the same or "false vitamin B12", but can also lead to confusion in analyses, which can result in a possible risk to our health.
In the case of the supplemented form, it is also important to choose a presentation of cyanocobalamin, as it has no documented toxic dose, is very stable to physical factors that can alter a product such as light or heat and, in turn, is the most studied and used in the scientific literature.
Therefore, with few exceptions, a cyanocobalamin supplementation in two intakes of 1000 mcg (1 capsule) twice a week is optimal in order to maintain it in a correct range and ensure that we do not have to worry about its range in analytical tests if continuous supplementation is carried out over time. Regarding this point, its administration in two intakes (2 separate days of the week) is more efficient with respect to its consumption in a single intake, something very important to take into account when using this supplement and which we recommend when making use of it.
