If you are feeling gloomy, exhausted, and sluggish, this may be due to deficiency of Vitamin B12. Our body does not produce Vitamin B 12, so we must take it either from food or by supplements. The lack of B12 can lead to low energy, fatigue, exhaustion, anemia, constipation, depression, poor memory, digestive issues, vision problems, and nerve damage. To keep your body functioning at its best with high energy levels, you should incorporate vitamin B12 supplement into your daily routine. Our product, B-12 Shock, is a blend of Vitamin B2, B3, B5, and B12, it helps to boost energy naturally by playing a role in energy metabolism. Vitamin B12 complex is essential for the maintenance of healthy nervous tissues and hence promotes brain health and encourages restful sleep.
Category5 B12 Shock drops assists in our immune system function and prevent us from infections. B vitamins play a vital role in maintaining good health and well-being by promoting cell health, growth of red blood cells, energy level, good digestion, hormones and cholesterol functions, cardiovascular health, and healthy brain function. Our convenient and easy-to-consume liquid B12 supplement with 1 ml per serving, helps you maintain optimal B12 levels and gives you the physical and mental vigor you need to take on the day. Once you add this easy to ingest supplement in your diet, you will feel the difference. There are a generous 60 servings per bottle. There are no additives, our product is free of yeast, wheat, milk or milk derivatives, lactose, sugar, soy artificial color and flavour. What you see on the label is what you get!
We combined 5 different Vitamin B forms to cover different aspects of function in the body. Let's take a look at the function of each one of these vitamins to understand where the benefits are coming from:
Comprised of the compound riboflavin, Vitamin B2 is essential for several processes in the body. It is utilized by the body to make flavoproteins; a class of enzymes that include coenzymes of either Flavin MonoNucleotide (FMN) or Flavin Adenine Dinucleotide (FAD). These are extremely important contributors in producing ATP as they regularly accept and donate electrons. Without Vitamin B-2, they cannot be produced. Supplementing with vitamin B-2 is an easy way to optimize this process.
Known as Niacin, is an essential compound for humans. It is a precursor to the coenzymes Nicotinaminde Adenine Dinucleuotide (NAD) and Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate (NAPH). Very similar to the coenzymes discussed before, they also accept and donate electrons. All of these molecules are essential for the breakdown of fats, carbs, protein, alcohol, and even processes such as DNA repair.
Known as pantothenic acid, this compound is needed from our diets in order for us to synthesize another coenzyme called Coenzyme A (CoA). This is required for the oxidation reactions of fatty acids and pyruvate which is involved ATP production.
It exists in several forms but typically is supplemented in the form of pyridoxine, this vitamin is involved in over 100 reactions in the body. Its active form plays major roles in the metabolism of fats, carbs, and proteins as well as the production of catecholamine neurotransmitters (serotonin, dopamine, epinepherine, nor-epinepherine).
Known as cobalamin, It is an extremely crucial vitamin as it has the rare ability to deliver the element cobalt. While we don't need much of this element, it is very rare and is required for every cell In our body to function. It is the most complex vitamin available and is utilized in all different aspects of our body ranging from DNA and Protein synthesis to aiding the function of the nervous system as a building block of myelin.
Vitamin B12 deficiency - A 21st century perspective
"Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common condition which can present with non-specific clinical features, and in severe cases with neurological or haematological abnormalities. Although classically caused by pernicious anaemia, this condition now accounts for a minority of cases and vitamin B12 deficiency occurs most often due to food-bound cobalamin malabsorption. Since missing the diagnosis can result in potentially severe complications, including degeneration of the spinal cord and pancytopaenia, vitamin B12 deficiency must be diagnosed early and managed appropriately. Intramuscular injections have been the mainstay of treatment, but oral replacement therapy can be effective in many cases. There is accumulating evidence that high vitamin B12 levels (values varied from 350-1,200 pmol/l) are associated with haematological and hepatic disorders, in particular with malignancy. This review focuses on the developments in the clinical features and management of vitamin B12 deficiency over the last decade."
Inflammation, vitamin B6 and related pathways.
"The active form of vitamin B6, pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (PLP), serves as a co-factor in more than 150 enzymatic reactions. Plasma PLP has consistently been shown to be low in inflammatory conditions; there is a parallel reduction in liver PLP, but minor changes in erythrocyte and muscle PLP and in functional vitamin B6 biomarkers. Plasma PLP also predicts the risk of chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease and some cancers, and is inversely associated with numerous inflammatory markers in clinical and population-based studies. Vitamin B6 intake and supplementation improve some immune functions in vitamin B6-deficient humans and experimental animals. A possible mechanism involved is mobilization of vitamin B6 to the sites of inflammation where it may serve as a co-factor in pathways producing metabolites with immunomodulating effects. Relevant vitamin B6-dependent inflammatory pathways include vitamin B6 catabolism, the kynurenine pathway, sphingosine 1-phosphate metabolism, the transsulfuration pathway, and serine and glycine metabolism."
Bioproduction of riboflavin: a bright yellow history.
"Riboflavin (vitamin B2) is an essential nutrient for humans and animals that must be obtained from the diet. To ensure an optimal supply, riboflavin is used on a large scale as additive in the food and feed industries. Here, we describe a historical overview of the industrial process of riboflavin production starting from its discovery and the need to produce the vitamin in bulk at prices that would allow for their use in human and animal nutrition. Riboflavin was produced industrially by chemical synthesis for many decades. At present, the development of economical and eco-efficient fermentation processes, which are mainly based on Bacillus subtilis and Ashbya gossypii strains, has replaced the synthetic process at industrial scale. A detailed account is given of the development of the riboflavin overproducer strains as well as future prospects for its improvement."
