When it comes to optimal health and wellbeing, one of the most common struggles is a feeling of constant fatigue and low energy. Even if you don’t have sleep issues, you may find yourself constantly tired, having a hard time focusing, maybe you’re forgetting things more often - we’ve been there.
It’s easy to dismiss this as just normal stress or aging, or maybe you try to compensate with some extra caffeine, but the real issue could be as simple as a nutrient deficiency - specifically vitamin B12.
What does B12 do?
Vitamin B12, or cobalamin, is an essential nutrient, which means our bodies need it for optimal health, but can’t produce it on our own. This means we have to get it from our diets, or by using a B12 supplement.
Some of the functions of B12 include:
- Boosts energy levels naturally
- Aids memory, learning ability, and cognitive function.
- Decreases homocysteine levels, which are associated with heart disease risk
- Improved eye health, especially in older populations
- Studies suggest Vitamin B12 may help with depression
- Reduced feelings of brain fog, fatigue, and lethargy
A deficiency in B12 can cause fatigue, weakness, decreased ability to learn new information and recall memories, numbness and tingling in your hands and feet, and can even reduce your total brain volume.
Luckily, supplementing with B12 is very easy, and a fantastic way to naturally increase your energy levels, support healthy brain function, and even support a healthy cardiovascular system.
Should you use B12?
While a B12 deficiency isn’t the most common nutrient issue, it’s still quite common, especially in vegans and older individuals. If you fall into one of those two camps and struggle with energy and mental function, or just want some insurance to make sure your bases are covered, our Liposomal Vitamin B12 is a perfect option.
Vitamin B12 is water soluble, which means if you take more than you need, your body simply flushes the rest. Our product is dosed to include the scientifically recommended amount, but as with anything else, be sure to consult with your primary health care provider before taking any dietary supplements.
Why Liposomal B12?
As mentioned earlier, B12 deficiencies are commonly found in older populations, partly because your body’s ability to properly absorb nutrients decreases with age. You can take B12 supplements from your local store, but they won’t be very effective if your body has a hard time absorbing them.
To get the most out of your supplements, you’ll want to take B12 in a liposomal form. This will ensure your body gets the maximum benefit from each product, and you won’t be wasting your money on non-liposomal products that your body can’t absorb very well.
Liposomes protect the vitamins from the harsh environment of your stomach acid, so it passes through safely to your small intestine, where it can be properly absorbed and utilized.
Finally, our convenient dosing makes it much more pleasant to consume than having to take unpleasant-tasting pills every day.
If you’re ready to increase your energy, mental focus, and support a healthy cardiovascular system, try our Liposomal Vitamin B12 today.
We too have found that magnesium can be very beneficial for supporting energy and sleep. We have a great liposomal magnesium product for people who are looking to properly supplement in that area! You can check it out here: manna.com/magnesium
Magnesium is pivotal in triggering the relaxation pathways in the body. One reason for this is that magnesium aids in gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) production, the neurotransmitter that soothes the nervous system and promotes sleep. Thus, a lack of magnesium can lead to sleep problems. Balance is vital as overconsumption of magnesium can also be detrimental to health.
