Research shows that gluten can damage the areas of the stomach and small intestine important for the absorption of vitamin B12 leading to increased risk of deficiency. Add to this the fact that there is an estimated 78% less vitamin B12 in our food supply today than there was in the 1960s. Vitamin B12 isn’t naturally produced in the body so it must be acquired through diet or supplementation. Delivered in a great tasting lozenge, Ultra B12 contains hydroxocobalamin, the form of B12 found in food. Meaning that your body can easily tolerate it. Hydroxycobalamin lasts longer and raises B12 concentration in your blood higher than any other form. This allows for optimal delivery to your tissues.
