Most people, irrespective of dietary preferences, do not get effective and adequate amounts of this critical vitamin.
B12 deficiency is common amongst the general population, but is most prevalent in those subsisting on a vegetarian or entirely plant-based diet. Why? Because B12 is found predominantly in meat and is the one nutrient not found in the plant-kingdom, making it an absolutely essential daily supplement for those favoring a plant-based diet.
If you are concerned about your levels of B12, consult your doctor for a simple blood test.
The other more typical and inexpensive form of over-the-counter B12 supplement, known as Cyanocobalamin, is a precursor that must first be converted to Methylcobalamin in the liver before it can perform its biochemical job in the brain. But this complex conversion process is inefficient and undermines optimal Methylcobalamin dosing and absorption because only a fraction of useable and bio-available Methylcobalamin is produced from this inefficient physiological transaction. By contrast, the Methylcobalamin form of B12 enters the bloodstream intact, quickly and efficiently so you get maximum benefit.
