Vitamin B-12 Addresses the Following Body Systems
Metabolism / Hormones
At any moment, millions of biochemical reactions are taking place in or around our nearly 100 trillion cells. To function at high levels of health, our metabolism is constantly binding molecules together and breaking them apart. In a way, our health is a function of the ease, speed, and coordination of these myriad reactions, processes named methylation, acetylation, phosphorylation, and sulfation. Hormones are messengers that tell the body to begin its various physiological activities, such as growth or sexual development. Hormones are produced in our glands and are often triggered by the brain. They are part of the intricate mechanism that makes us humans with unique personalities.
Through phospholipids such as omega-3 or omega-6 in the membrane of the cell, the hormones transfer important messages to the nucleus of the cell where the DNA produces the proteins and enzymes needed to carry out the brain's desires. With age, as metabolism slows, can come a loss of effective function, which in turn can lead to a multitude of problems associated with aging. By proactively supporting metabolic and hormonal processes you can maintain youthful activity within your body.
The heart is a muscle that must contract without missing a beat about every second of our lives. The cardiovascular system's importance to our health goes beyond the critical function of supplying food and oxygen to all the cells. The blood transports hormones and other messenger molecules that signal the coordination of numerous critical functions, and through the white blood cells, the circulatory system is the site of significant immune protection. Numerous factors can impact circulatory health: the oxidation of molecules, cholesterol levels, homocysteine buildup, fibrin viscosity, lack of nitric oxide, capillary and blood vessel strength and integrity, metabolic inflammation, and energy generation for a heartbeat. Maintaining these and other functions is an intricate balancing act. That balance can be provided by the intelligent use of nutrition.
What is Vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin needed for normal nerve cell activity, DNA replication, and production of the mood-affecting substance SAMe (S-adenosyl-L-methionine). Vitamin B12 acts with folic acid and vitamin B6 to control homocysteine levels. An excess of homocysteine is associated with an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and potentially other diseases such as osteoporosis and Alzheimer's disease.
Where is Vitamin B12 found?
Vitamin B12 is found in all foods of animal origin, including dairy, eggs, meat, poultry, and fish. According to one report, small, inconsistent amounts occur in seaweed (including nori and chlorella) and tempeh.1 Many researchers and healthcare professionals believe that people cannot rely on vegetarian sources to provide predictably sufficient quantities of vitamin B12. However, another study found substantial amounts of vitamin B12 in nori (at least 55 mcg per 100 grams of dry weight).
About Source Naturals
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual's potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn't exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry's #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals' comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems.
