Valens B12 is a convenient food supplement in the form of an oral spray with a pleasant cherry flavor. It contains methylcobalamin, a naturally active form of vitamin B12. Our oral application makes the product easier to use and ensures better absorption which can start immediately upon reaching the surface of the mouth. This is especially important with people who have limited absorption in the digestive system.
Foods of animal origin are a major source of B12 in the human diet, therefore B12 supplementation is especially recommended to vegans and vegetarians.
Active form of vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 supplements are typically derived from two sources: cyanocobalamin or methylcobalamin. Cyanocobalamin is a synthetic form of vitamin B12 found only in supplements, while methylcobalamin is a naturally occurring form that you can get through either food sources or supplements. While cyanocobalamin has to be converted into either methylcobalamin or adenosylcobalamin, which are the two active forms of vitamin B12 in humans, Valens B12 already contains an active form of B12 with higher retention rate.
Vitamin B12 contributes to:
- normal psychological function
- normal energy-yielding metabolism
- reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- normal functioning of the nervous system
- normal red blood cell formation
