Vitamin B-12 from Progressive Labs
Posted by Eileen Durfee on 8th Jan 2016
Methyl B-12 supplement from Progressive Laboratories contains this essential B-Complex vitamin that is mainly found in animal products. Food sources such as meat and eggs are rich in B-complex, which is why vegetarians are often recommended to take a B-12 supplement. But even those who do eat food sources containing B-12 may still need higher doses.
B-12 is a critical substance associated with a number of the body's necessities, including:
- Protein synthesis
- Nervous system
- Blood formation
- Fat and nucleic acid synthesis
- Maintenance of vision and coordination
Those who are older and/or under tremendous amounts of stress tend to have low levels of B-12. These low levels can be associated with symptoms such as memory loss, fatigue, and weakness.
One tablet of this B-12 supplement contains:
- Folate [(6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid, glucosamine salt] Quatrefolic 400 mcg
- Vitamin B-12 (as methylcobalamin) 1100 mcg
- Vitamin B-6 (from pyridoxine HCI and pyridoxal-5-phosphate) 46 mcg
Other ingredients include: Sorbitol, L-Leucine, natural and artificial cherry flavor, silicon dioxide, Rebaudios.
B-Complex vitamins can be used as part of a Nutritional Balancing program to adjust the body’s oxidation rate. It is important to get a hair analysis kit in order to determine your individual’s body’s needs. Taking the wrong supplements can throw your body out of balance and supplementing with too much B-12 can contribute to cobalt toxicity. We always recommend a hair analysis kit before committing to any supplement plan to make sure you are getting the proper nutrients for your body.
A Nutritional Balancing program guided by a hair analysis kit will help you learn the appropriate supplements and dosages to take. Purchase a hair analysis kit here and check out Progressive Labs' B-12 to assist with your B-Complex vitamin needs.
