B Vitamins

Used In: Classic - Immune - Focus

Vitamin B-12 helps the body to metabolize carbohydrates, proteins, and healthy fats. It also aids in the function of all healthy body cells, especially nerve, red blood, and brain cells. RevvNRG provides more than four times the vitamin B-12 found in the leading multi-vitamins.

Vitamin B12 is the most complex of the vitamins and is the only naturally-occurring organic compound that contains cobalt.

Cyanocobalamin is the principal and most stable form of vitamin B12 and is most commonly used for foods and in nutritional supplements. Cyanocobalamin has a variety of vital functions such as: energy production, nervous system function in the production of myelin, the protective sheath around nerves, and the production of a neurotransmitter that helps with memory and with learning.

Cyanocobalamin is usually prescribed by physicians:

  • to treat gastric bypass patients (who have had part of their small intestine bypassed, making it difficult for B12 to be absorbed via food or vitamins.)
  • to ensure that there are adequate levels of vitamin B12 in the bloodstream after surgical removal of part or all of the stomach or intestine
  • to treat pernicious anemia (vitamin B12 deficiency due to a low intake from food.)
  • to treat thyrotoxicosis, hemorrhage, malignancy, and liver or kidney disease.
  • to perform the Schilling test in order to check a person's ability to absorb vitamin B12.

People can get enough Vitamin B12 in their diet, but may still have a deficiency due to certain health conditions. These conditions would include: poor nutrition, stomach/intestinal problems, infections, cancer, etc. Considering the fact that these conditions are almost the norm in today’s world of fast food and nutritionally bankrupt foods, Vitamin B12 supplementation is a must. If severe deficiency does occur, it may result in anemia, severe stomach problems, and nerve damage.

Vitamin B12 works with other vitamins for even greater overall results. When coupled with vitamin B9 (Folate), it regulates the formation of red blood cells and helps iron function better in the body. It is also important for the activity of certain enzymes, special substances that speed up reactions in the body, within cells that control fat and amino acids, and metabolize carbohydrates. In conjunction with Folate, they strengthen the production of DNA and RNA. Along with folic acid, they reduce the risk of heart disease and Osteoporosis by helping to control homocysteine levels. Finally, Vitamin B12 accompanies calcium, B6, and iron in assisting in just about every function of the body.
