ACTIVE Chewable B12 with L-Methylfolate utilizes 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. 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.

Active Chewable B12 with L-Methylfolate supports macronutrient metabolism and red blood cell formation. Both methylcobalamin and L-methylfolate help in maintaining normal plasma levels of the protein metabolite homocysteine. Homocysteine can be re-methylated back to methionine via donation of a methyl group from L-methylfolate, with methylcobalamin acting as a necessary cofactor in this remethylation process. In participants with elevated homocysteine levels, high-dose supplementation with methylcobalamin and folic acid for 2 weeks resulted in a significant reduction in plasma homocysteine levels.
