Aspen Pure B12

B12 – Methylcobalamin 5000 mcg

Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient for the body, and is needed to protect DNA and RNA, support energy, protect nerve and brain cells, stimulate serotonin production, contribute to red blood cell formation, support immune function, and maintain a positive mood.

There are two forms of vitamin B12 that you’re likely to come across – methylcobalamin and cyanocobalamin. Cyanocobalamin is the most commonly supplemented form of vitamin B12 and is chemically synthesised. Methylcobalamin is found in animal-based foods and is therefore obviously naturally occuring.
What's the difference between methylcobalamin and cyanocobalamin? Methylcobalamin has a methyl group (just carbon and hydrogen) while cyanocobalamin contains a cyanide molecule. Although the amount of cyanide in a normal B12 supplement is too small to be harmful, your body will still need to remove and eliminate this compound. As it has no use for the cyano-compound itself, it will set about converting any cyanocobalamin you take into methylcobalamin as soon as possible - it’s the methyl-compound that the human body needs to function properly.


What makes methylcobalamin superior? Methylcobalamin the most bio-available form of Vitamin B12, i.e. it is the most readily absorbed and it remains in the body for a longer period of time and at higher levels than cyanocobalamin, which means that your body is supplied with vitamin B12 for longer if you use methylcobalamin than if you use cyanocobalamin. Methylcobalamin is used primarily in your liver, brain and nervous system, in fact methylcobalamin is the specific form of B12 needed for nervous system health.


BENEFITS:

Improved metabolism/ weight loss efforts: B12 helps in metabolizing fats and protein which in turn helps boost your metabolism and increases weight loss. Proper utilization of fat, protein, and carbohydrate intake can also help with appetite control.


Increased energy: The body needs B12 to create energy, which creates a boost in energy, mental clarity and focus, and improved mood. Vitamin B12 can treat anemia, help with production of creatine, which is beneficial for building muscle mass and reducing muscle weakness.


Better Sleep: Research indicates that methylcobalamin can modulate melatonin secretion, enhance light-sensitivity, and normalize circadian rhythm (your body's 24-hour clock). Because of this, individuals supplementing this form of B12 often report improved quality of sleep, often will require slightly less sleep, and will not uncommonly report that they feel a bit more refreshed when waking in the morning.


Heart Help: One of the primary reactions of methylcobalamin in the body is to convert homocysteine to methionine - high homocysteine levels are undesirable and known to be an indicator of heart disease and stroke risk due to the fact free homocysteine in the blood causes sclerosis of the arteries, putting strain on the vascular system and the heart.


Detox: The conversion of homocysteine to methionine reduces the potential for damage because the reaction results in the formation of the super-antioxidant glutathione. Glutathione is the body's master detoxifier and the body's main antioxidant, protecting our cells from damage.

Aspen Lipo Extreme

Lipotropic Nutrients are compounds that promote the flow of fat and bile to and from the liver. In essence, they produce a “decongesting” effect on the liver and promote improved liver function and fat metabolism. Lipotropic substances decrease the deposit or speed up the removal of fat within the liver. Lipotropic mixtures combine liver and gallbladder therapies in one product and those using it can benefit simultaneously from the power and potential of them all.

  • Vitamin B8 - Inositol (50 mg) a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex and closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
  • Choline (50 mg) is considered one of the B-complex vitamins as well as a lipotropic nutrient. It is present in the body of all living cells and functions with inositol as a basic constituent of lecithin. Choline appears to be associated with the utilization of fats and cholesterol in the body. It prevents fats from accumulating in the liver and facilitates the movements of fats into the cells and is essential for the health of the liver and the kidneys.
  • Vitamin B5 - Dexpanthenol (25 mg) is critical to the manufacture of red blood cells. Vitamin B5 is also important in maintaining a healthy digestive tract and it helps the body use other vitamins more effectively. It is sometimes call the “anti-stress” vitamin because it is believed to enhance the activity of the immune system and improves the body’s ability to withstand stressful conditions. Also heavily involved in the metabolic process and production of energy, and is critical for the manufacture of red blood cells. In addition to breaking down fats and carbs for energy, it’s responsible for the production of sex and stress-related hormones including testosterone. Studies show B5 also promotes healthy skin with the ability to reduce signs of skin aging such as redness and skin spots.
  • Vitamin B6 – Pyrodoxine (25 mg) plays a vital role in metabolism by breaking down fats and carbohydrates for energy and acts as a mild diuretic. The higher the protein intake, the greater the requirement of B6. B6 is involved in more bodily functions than any other nutrient, affecting both physical and mental health. B6 is required for the proper absorption of B12 and the production of HCl. It acts as a coenzyme in the breakdown and utilization of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It must be present for the production of antibodies and red blood cells.

  • Vitamin B12 - Hydroxocobolamin (500 mcg) is a unique form of Vitamin B12 that offers a longer lasting effect than the cyanocobolamin form. Vitamin b12 is needed for normal fatty acid and DNA synthesis. It is essential for maintaining the integrity of the nervous system and the synthesis of molecules involved in the production of energy. Vitamin B12 deficiency can result in fatigue, cognitive impairment, neuropathies, and sleep disorders.

  • Chromium Picolinate (15 mcg), or the “blood sugar nutrient” that helps promote regular insulin function and may help to metabolize fat, turn protein into muscle, and convert sugar into energy. In addition, it supports cognitive function, such as mental focus and mental stamina, and helps relieve fatigue and enhance performance endurance and mental acuity.

  • L-Carnitine (25 mg) assists in the transport of fat through the cell membrane and into the mitochondria within the cell, where the fats are oxidized, resulting in the production of cellular energy (ATP). L-Carnitine accelerates the rate of ketone production which has both a protein sparing effect and appetite suppressing effect. Training benefits include improved muscle building potential, increased strength and endurance, improved bone strength, reduced risk of overtraining, improved mental function, improved fat metabolism, increased muscle mass, reduced recovery times, and improved energy levels.
