Vitamin B12 to boost heart performance and brain health
Vitamin B12 Benefits:
- Stimulates the nervous system and cognitive function
- Strengthens heart system health by contributing to homocysteine levels
- Provides methylcobalamin, the bioactive form of vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient that has the ability to boost heart system health by stabilizing normal homocysteine levels, as well as stimulating the nervous system and cognitive function.
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) helps maintain the health of the nervous system and stimulate heart function by maintaining homocysteine levels within normal parameters. Supplementation of this vitamin can be particularly important for those who follow a vegetarian diet as well as for older people.
Keys to its operation
Vitamin B12, or cobalamin, works in conjunction with folate and vitamin B6 to help keep homocysteine levels within normal parameters. Maintaining homocysteine levels is important for heart health [9-12].
Cobalamin levels have been found to be significantly lower in older people than in young people [2-5]. It is estimated that between 10 and 30 % of those over the age of 50 secrete little gastric acid [6-7], resulting in a reduction in the bioavailability of vitamin B12 from food. This reduction makes it difficult to maintain normal homocysteine levels, as well as optimal heart performance.
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is present in multiple animal foods, including eggs and dairy, so vegetarians are more susceptible to a deficiency of this important nutrient in their diet .
Cobalamin's relationship with neuronal growth, cognitive system stimulation and overall brain health has also been shown. In conjunction with folate, it helps to keep red blood cell production within normal parameters. Methylcobalamin is the bioactive form of vitamin B12, which is used by both the body and the central nervous system.
Scientific basis of the product
The Institute of Medicine states that routine consumption of enriched foods, such as breakfast cereals or supplements containing vitamin B12, facilitates stabilization of appropriate levels .
Methylcobalamin (cobalamin) is a form of this vitamin that has proven useful in stimulating neurological function and normal neural activity. Methylcobalamin has also demonstrated its ability to stimulate cognitive and emotional functions in addition to memory . Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to a reduction in the synthesis of methionine synthese, the enzyme responsible for converting homocysteine into methionine. The result is a high level of homocysteine in the serum and a low level of methionine .
