Innisfil Scope

Vitamin B-12, also known as cobalamin, is a water soluble vitamin that plays an important role in several areas of the body. Vitamin B12 has become popular for its ability to produce energy however its benefits go far beyond this.

B-12 is vital in supporting brain function, balancing the nervous system and assisting in metabolism. It is also used in the production of red blood cells as well as DNA and RNA. It is generally involved in the metabolism of every cell in the human body.

Vitamin B-12 deficiency is very common, in fact Vitamin B12 deficiency affects about one quarter of North Americans. One of the most common effects of vitamin B-12 deficiency is anemia or low blood levels. Symptoms of a mild to prolonged B-12 deficiency include:
•feeling weak, light headed or tired
•pale skin
•sore red tongue
•bleeding gums
•numbness in your fingers or toes
•a poor sense of balance
•depression and in some cases dementia
•decreased performance of mental abilities

Supplementing with a B-12 vitamin is good insurance against a deficiency. Taking vitamin B-12 sublingually appears to have advantages over all other forms of B12, including injections given by your doctor. B-12 taken sublingually not only absorbs more quickly and effectively, it absorbs directly into your bloodstream giving you the maximum benefits.
