VITABALANS Vitamin B12 1000 mcg, with Folic Acid 400 mcg, for the memory and mood.
Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid are vitamins for the nerve system, and their function and activity are interdependent. Deficiency of both vitamins is not rare: the most common cause for vitamin B12 deficiency is low acidity in the stomach which prevents the absorption of the vitamin. Low consumption of vegetables and fruits can cause folate deficiency. Vitamin B12 deficiency is more in the elderly, and low intake of folate is more common in women and middle-aged men.
VITABALANS Vitamin B12 1000 mcg, with Folic Acid 400 mcg, contribute to normal psychological functions. Psychological functions mean cognitive performance such as memory, concentration, learning and problem-solving. Long-term low intake of these vitamins can weaken cognitive performances, especially memory, in the elderly.
Vitamin B12 and folate also contribute to the normal metabolism of homocysteine metabolism. In the body, homocysteine is produced in the metabolism of dietary proteins. It is further converted into sulphur-containing methionine amino acid. Vitamin B12 and folate are needed in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. In the absence of these vitamins, homocysteine is accumulated in the bloodstream. The high concentration of homocysteine may have harmful effects.
B12 is also well absorbed on the mucous membranes of the mouth if a supplement contains a high amount of vitamin. Let Vitabalans B12 + Folic Acid lozenge slowly dissolve in the mouth in order to ensure the maximal absorption of the vitamin B12.
A food supplement is no substitution for a varied and balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
