Most people have insufficient levels of vitamin B12 for two primary reasons – today’s dietary sources contain lower levels of vitamin B12, and an increasing number of people don’t have enough stomach acid to adequately absorb B12 from food sources.
Taking vitamin B12 supplementation to a whole new level, Chewable Vitamin B12 also provides 1 gram per serving of a special organic prebiotic that helps your body make its own supply of B12 called Xylooligosaccharides, or XOS. XOS are gaining recognition for their ability to support digestive, immune, metabolic, cardiovascular and brain health by:
- Promoting the growth of healthy Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria in your colon and replenishing age-related gut bacteria loss
- Optimizing microbial balance in your microbiome
- Promoting regularity
- Supporting already healthy lipid levels
- Increasing levels of beneficial short chain fatty acids (SCFAs)
- Providing excellent benefits at smaller doses (compared with FOS and GOS), thus minimizing common complaints like gas and cramping
