Genestra ACTIVE Chewable B12 - 60 chewable tablets
The ACTIVE vitamin B’s utilize premium source ingredients such as methylcobalamin, Metafolin®, riboflavin-5-phosphate and pyridoxal-5-phosphate. These are in the body’s most preferred active forms, helping to provide support to energy production and metabolic processes. The vitamin B complex consists of vitamin B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin and niacinamide), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folate) and B12 (methylcobalamin). As co-enzymes, the B vitamins play an important role in energy production, helping to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins.1 B vitamins also help in normal growth and development through the formation of red blood cells and tissue formation.2 B vitamins are not generally stored in the body in any appreciable amounts (with the exception of vitamin B12) as they are water-soluble substances – thus the requirement for vitamin B supplementation.
Vitamin B12 is essential for normal metabolism of carbohydrates, fat and protein. As a cofactor for methylmalonyl-CoA mutase enzymes, vitamin B12 helps convert odd chain fatty acids and branched chain amino acids into succinyl-CoA, a common citric acid cycle intermediate.3 Vitamin B12 is also required for nucleic acid (DNA) synthesis, methionine synthesis from cysteine, and normal myelin synthesis in the nervous system.4 Along with vitamin B6 and folic acid, adequate levels of vitamin B12 are required to maintain normal plasma homocysteine levels. Methylcobalamin is a more active form, immediately bioavailable upon absorption (unlike other forms which must be converted first)
