High-dose vitamin B12

High doses of vitamin B12 are essential, especially for vegetarians, vegans and people with stomach disorders, to correct or prevent B12 deficiency.
This Vitamintrend supplement contains 1000µg vitamin B12 per capsule in the form of the 3 bioactive B12 compounds methylcobalamin, adenosylcobalamin and hydroxycobalamin. One capsule a day is sufficient to cover your B12 needs and replenish your stores.

Different forms of vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 or cobalamin can be present in four different forms: methylcobalamin, adenosylcobalamin, hydroxycobalamin and cyanocobalamin.
While methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin are the two active forms of vitamin B12, hydroxycobalamin can be easily converted by the body into the other two forms.

Cyanocobalamin is synthetic vitamin B12 that is not bioactive. In order for the organism to be able to use it, it must first be converted into a bioactive form in four steps. However, the advantage of cyanocobalamin is that it is a very stable form of the vitamin and is easier to absorb. Nevertheless, the bioactive forms are preferable, as they do not depend on prior conversion.

B12 Deficiency

A vitamin B12 deficiency can occur for three reasons: insufficient intake, increased use or utilisation problems.
A lack of intake is often seen in vegans, vegetarians or people with an unbalanced nutrition. This is because vitamin B12 is found primarily in animal foods and only in small amounts in plant foods.
Increased consumption occurs mainly during pregnancy and breastfeeding, but stress, illness and oxidative stress can also increase the use of B12 and drain the body's stores, especially if not enough vitamin B12 is supplied through food or supplements.

Vitamin B12 intake depends on the so-called intrinsic factor, which is a special transport molecule that transports the vitamin to the intestinal mucosa where it is absorbed. The intrinsic factor is produced in the cells in the lining of the stomach, so it is likely that stomach diseases such as gastritis or infection with Helicobacter pylori can lead to a vitamin B12 deficiency.
It is also possible that people who are elderly or who have Crohn's disease or liver damage might have difficulty absorbing vitamin B12.

Taking high doses of vitamin B12 can avoid the need for the intrinsic factor. At doses of 500µg and above, cobalamin is also absorbed via passive diffusion in the intestine.

Vitamin for the nervous system

Most people know vitamin B12 as the vitamin for red blood cell production or for normal homocysteine levels. However, cobalamin also plays an important role in the nervous system and psyche. It protects the nerves and is needed for the synthesis of essential messenger substances.
Furthermore, B12 is a component of energy metabolism and ensures that the macronutrients are optimally utilised. A well-functioning energy metabolism can reduce tiredness and fatigue.

Vitamin B12 in food

As mentioned above, cobalamin is primarily found in animal-based foods. Methylcobalamin is most commonly found in milk and dairy products, while adenosylcobalamin and hydroxycobalamin are mainly found in meat.
The best B12 sources include cheese, liver and fish such as mackerel and herring.

Traces of vitamin B12 are found in sauerkraut, fermented soy products, mushrooms and root vegetables. However, these are not sufficient to cover daily requirements or to fill the B12 stores.
