What source of Vitamin B12 do we use?
We have chosen to use ‘Methylcobalamin’ for its active absorption status which means it can be absorbed directly into the blood stream via the mouth area of the cheek and under the tongue and via the small intestine.
What are Liposomes?
Liposomes encapsulate nutrients into a sphere like ‘fat rich’ bubble which protects nutrients against the gut's harsh digestive processes, aids absorption, and help the nutrient remain in the plasma (blood) for longer.
Liposomes are not man-made, they are in fact derived from natural Sunflower Lecithin which produces phosphatidylcholine (PC), the material that forms the bubble membrane. The Liposome membrane structure is made with the similar PC material that forms our body's internal cell walls. We consume PC every day from the foods we eat which helps to strengthen our cell walls and build new ones.
The Liposome physiological similarity to our cells, enables the body to recognise and rapidly absorb them into the plasma (blood). The body then transports the Liposomes around the body, target-delivering the nutrients into our cells.
Are liposomes a new technology?
Liposome Encapsulation delivery is not a new science; its a type of nanotechnology that has been safely and effectively used to improve the delivery of nutrients, and drugs for more than 30 years. There are thousands of studies, which have proven the method to be safe and effective in its application.
How much Vitamin B12 should I take?
This is down to personal preference or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. For the full does of 1,200 mcg*, each spray delivers 300mcg* of Vitamin B12 which equates to 4 sprays. You can spray together or take separately throughout the day, but you may find it more convenient to take all together.
For Children under the age of 12 halve the dose i.e. 2 sprays daily.
Official recommendations for B12 intake are significantly lower; 1.5 micrograms* in the UK, 2.4 micrograms in the US and 4.0 micrograms in Europe (EFSA). These recommendations however are for avoiding general Vitamin B maintenance, not for optimising levels or addressing those who have mild or severe deficiency.
The safe upper daily limits for taking Vitamin B12 are 2000mcg* or less a day.
* The word microgram (mcg), is sometimes written with the Greek symbol μ followed by the letter g (μg).
