Activated B-12 Guard 2000 mcg | 100 Lozenges:
Perque Activated B-12 Guard is in lozenge form for maximum uptake and optimal delivery to the brain. Studies on Perque Activated B-12 Guard lozenge formulation show nearly the same B-12 uptake as from injection. Patients notice that they feel better more quickly.
Vitamin B-12 in our food supply is estimated to be 78% less than in the 1960s. Diet alone is hard pressed to provide the necessary levels of this important nutrient. In addition, stress and reduced hydrochloric acid (HCl) and intrinsic factor production in the stomach impair absorption. The most commonly used forms of B-12 require activation in the body, making uptake quite low - rarely more than 50%.
Perque delivers vitamin B-12 in its superior, activated hydroxocobalamin form. Hydroxocobalamin lasts longer and raises B-12 blood concentrations higher than other forms. Hydroxocobalamin requires no intrinsic factor and is taken up directly by mucous membranes regardless of digestive competence.
Hydroxocobalamin is easily converted to active but short-lived methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin as needed in the body. Hydroxocobalamin, the parent to other B-12 forms, provides better, long-lived B-12 action in the body.
Directions: As a dietary supplement, take one (1) sublingual lozenge daily or as directed by your health professional. Place lozenge under tongue and let dissolve.
