B12 + 5MTHF, 60 Lozenges
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for the maintenance of a healthy nervous system and for the metabolic utilization of fats and proteins. It is most commonly known for its role in the synthesis of DNA during cell division and the normal development and regeneration of red blood cells. Red blood cells help deliver oxygen throughout the body. Vitamin B12 is a part of a triad of vitamins, along with Folic Acid and Vitamin B6, that support heart health.
Finlandia uses only the Methylcobalamin form of B12 as it is the most active form of Vitamin B12. Unlike other forms of B12, Methylcobalamin does not have to go through a cumbersome conversion process. It is ready on demand.
Our updated B12 plus folate lozenges now provide you with 5,000 mcg of Methylcobalamin and 1,000 mcg of 5MTHF (the active form of folate) in an easy-to deliver lozenge.
Folic acid too must be converted to its active forms to be 100% useful. This is a sophisticated biochemical process that occurs in the intestines and liver. In the presence of intestinal or liver dysfunction this conversion may not occur sufficiently enough to meet the body’s needs. The active form of folic acid – 5MTHF – is already converted and must be present in sufficient quantity for normal production of the neurotransmitters serotonin, melatonin, dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine.
5-MTHF is critical for both cardiovascular function and mood support.
Not only did we improve the Folic Acid part of our B12 formula, but we also increased its potency from 500 mcg to 1,000 mcg per lozenge.
Finlandia’s B12 + 5MTHF sublingual lozenges dissolve conveniently under the tongue and have a delicious grape flavour.
