Twinlab Vitamin B12 Dots:
- Supports Natural Energy Production
Vitamin B-12 Discovered
Vitamin B12, or cobalamin, was isolated from a liver extract in 1948 and identified as the nutritional factor in liver, which prevented pernicious anemia, a deadly type of anemia characterized by large, immature blood cells.
Sources of Vitamin B12
Dietary B12 comes primarily from animal products. So if you are a vegetarian or vegan you may want to consider supplementing with Vitamin B12.
What does Vitamin B12 do in the body?
Vitamin B12 functions in the body in the form of two coenzymes. Vitamin B12 can function in the metabolism of fatty acids, which are used to maintain certain layers of the nerves. It is needed for DNA synthesis particularly in the production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the body. It also acts as a carrier of methyl groups used to produce molecules such as creatine, which is necessary for energy reserves in the muscles.
Twinlab has had had one simple and over-riding objective for nearly 30 years. To bring you products that are based on the latest science, and are manufactured to the highest level pharmaceutical standards.
This is Twinlab's mission for everything that has their name on it: vitamins, minerals, sports nutrition products, special formulas and amino acids. Twinlab's herbs are sold under the Nature's Herbs brand, and their herbal teas under the Alvita brand, but the commitment and standards are the same.
Twinlab's leadership is reflected in the firsts they have brought to the market:
- The first complete line of amino acids
- The first complete line of fish and marine oils
- The most advanced and complete array of antioxidants
- All-capsule vitamin and mineral line well tolerated by allergic individuals
But Twinlab is not only motivated to be first, they are driven to be best. Twinlab insists on their own manufacturing (trust can't be transferred), which takes place in their state-of-the-art facility in American Fork, Utah.
All told, Twinlab produces more than 500 different products. Why so many? Because everyone has their own needs, yet everyone has the same goal: to live healthier, to achieve wellness, to derive the maximum quality of life each and every day. To the extent Twinlab helps you achieve this, they consider it a privilege.
