Vitamin B12 100µg – Lift Mood and Reduce The Risk of Heart Disease! Vitamin B12, also known as Cobalamin, is essential for normal nerve cell activity, DNA replication, and the production of a mood-enhancing substance called SAMe (S-adenosyl-L-methionine). As many as 20% of adults may be deficient in vitamin b12, and as we get older or more stressed, our ability to absorb it reduces. Being water-soluble vitamin B12 should be replaced on a daily basis. Vitamin B12, Folic Acid and vitamin B6 work hand in hand with each other to control homocysteine levels, preventing many heart disease problems such as angina and strokes. On its own B12 is still very powerful when it comes to elevating mood by the production of SAMe, which also has an effect on depression, insomnia and cognitive decline like Alzheimers disease. Recently B12 has been shown to have a positive effect on energy levels; in one trial boosting levels by 80% in a group of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome sufferers, this may because of the effect it has on anaemia and the transportation of red blood cells around the body for proper oxygenation. Many researchers and healthcare professionals believe that we can’t rely on vegetarian sources of this amazing nutrient, so a supplement is essential.
