Vitamin B12 - 60 Lozenges
Vitamin B12 lozenges are a great tasting, high dose vitamin B12 product. Each berry flavored lozenge contains 5000 mcg methylcobalamin, a naturally occurring, highly bioavailable form of vitamin B12. They are designed to deliver B12 through the mucous membranes in order to bypass the need for intrinsic factor, a protein produced in the stomach that is necessary for maximal GI absorption of B12. Vitamin B12 in supplement form also reduces the need for stomach acid, which is typically required to separate food-derived B12 from food proteins.
It is important to let the lozenge dissolve slowly and not chew it in order to allow the vitamin to be absorbed properly through the mucosal tissue that lines mouth.
Made with GMO-free ingredients. The methylcobalamin form of B12 converts to the metabolic intermediate cobalamin, which is converted to the two intracellular active forms of B12: methylcobalamin (for methylation cycles) and adenosylcobalamin (for mitochondrial metabolism of various energy sources: amino acids, odd chain fatty acids and cholesterol).
Methylation reactions are critical biochemical processes that assure proper cell differentiation and replication, the proper production of brain chemicals (neurotransmitters), methylation of DNA (epigenetic control of genetic expression), and methylation of certain hormones and neurotransmitters for their proper inactivation.
It is important to note that the methyl group contained in this dietary form is not utilized in methylation reactions. The sources of intracellular methyl groups are: methylfolate, SAMe, betaine, choline and methionine.
These lozenges provide 5000 mcg of B12, which is a dose a high enough to push absorption by mass action through the cellular diffusion pathway, typically estimated at 1%. They are an ideal way to help increase levels of B12 quickly, when higher doses of this vitamin are desired.
In cases where there are suspected genetic polymorphisms of B12 absorption and metabolism pathways, Designs for Health offers Trifolamin™ lozenges, which provides three forms of bioavailable B12 and additional methylfolate.

Ingredients & Dosage
Vitamin B6 Liquid (formally Sublingual B6 Liquid)
Vitamin B6 Liquid tastes great with a natural raspberry flavor, absorbs easily, and is the perfect solution for people who need higher doses of this often-lacking vitamin. This unique formula works synergistically to support numerous bodily reactions, such as neurotransmitter production, hormone metabolism and much more.
Vitamin B6 Liquid combines magnesium with zinc and vitamin B6 because they serve as common cofactors in the body and are needed for multiple metabolic conversions. Deficiencies in any or all of these nutrients can lead to multiple health issues related to neurotransmitters, hormones and more.
B6, zinc and magnesium are critical for numerous reactions that occur in the body. Lacking any of these critical nutrients can have far reaching consequences. Deficiency of B6 is not uncommon due to poor diet, depleting medications such as birth control pills, excessive alcohol intake, parasitic infections and heavy metal poisoning. Alcoholics, older adults, and women on oral contraceptives are at high risk for vitamin B6 deficiency.
Vitamin B6 Liquid in the range of 50-200 mg per day may help in the nutritional support of patients with the following: PMS, menopause,occasional fatigue, copper toxicity, high homocysteine, MSG sensitivity, and adult attention support.
Vitamin B6 Liquid is a great tasting convenient and easily absorbed formula, with the addition of the important co-factors magnesium and zinc in the bioavailable Albion Chelate form. Please also see More Info tab and consult with our Nutritionist for more info on Vitamin B-6 Liquid, see Contact Us.
