Vitamin B-12 is an important vitamin for most of your bodies functions. One of the main roles for Vitamin B-12 is to help your nerves work better. A low B-12 level will often leave you feeling tired and drained and you may even have numbness and tingling in your legs. Another important role of vitamin B-12 is for healthy brain function. Many people have been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's disease, only to find that their dulled memory or brain function was because they didn't have enough vitamin B-12.
This month, Mint Hill Pharmacy is promoting the Liposomal B-12 vitamin manufactured by Vinco, Inc. This product is an oral solution so it is highly and quickly absorbed in your body. It also has two active forms of vitamin B-12, methylcobalamine and hydroxycobalamine. Most of the B-12 supplements that are available are cyanocobalamin, which is not very well absorbed or used by the body. Our supplement of the month also has two other important B vitamins - folic acid and B-6. Both of these are also important for energy and for nerve function. And the folic acid is in the active form of folic acid - methylfolate or 5-MTHF. Again, most folic acid vitamins are the inactive form of folic acid and your body has to "activate" it so all of the vitamin is not useful.
Stop in or call to get more information on our supplement of the month!
