Do I really need B12?
Vegans and those on plant-based diets absolutely must supplement. While it’s possible to get enough B12 from fortified foods like nutritional yeast, you would need 3 or more servings per day to meet the recommended daily intake.Those over the age of 65 tend to also have lower B12 levels, so they may also consider supplementation. As with all supplements, you should ideally have a blood test to first confirm your B12 levels.
Is your B12 safe?
B12 is an essential nutrient and likely something that you already consume either through your diet or through fortified foods. It is also water-based, which means your body excretes any excess B12 from your system.As with all our supplements, we have a rigorous quality system which includes 3rd party certification for potency and impurities.
Why is your dosage 500mcg?
B12 is very poorly absorbed by our bodies. In fact, of a 500mcg dosage, it’s estimated that our bodies will absorb just 5mcg. Different doctors recommend different dosages, some higher, some lower, but we feel that 500mcg to 1000mcg strikes the right balance to benefit the greatest number of our customers.
