B-12 Plus (Natural Berry Flavor) 1000 mcg by Anabolic Laboratories provides vitamin B12‚ which is a B-complex vitamin that may work to promote general health in several ways.
First‚ vitamin B12 could potentially aid in the production of red blood cells; this is important because red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen from your lungs to other cells that need it.
Moreover‚ B-12 Plus (Natural Berry Flavor) 1000 mcg might work to maintain healthy nervous system function.
For these reasons‚ this Anabolic Laboratories supplement provides 1‚000 micrograms of methylcobalamin per serving. Since methylcobalamin is the active form of vitamin B12‚ B-12 Plus (Natural Berry Flavor) 1000 mcg may be easier to absorb than other B12 supplements.
Since this supplement comes in lozenge form‚ it’s suitable for anybody who has trouble swallowing capsules or tablets. In addition‚ these lozenges contains natural strawberry and raspberry flavorings.
Finally‚ B-12 Plus (Natural Berry Flavor) 1000 mcg is convenient because you only have to take one lozenge daily!
Each bottle of Anabolic Laboratories’ B-12 Plus (Natural Berry Flavor) 1000 mcg contains 30 vegetarian lozenges‚ which should last for about one month at the recommended serving size.

The RDA for adults is 2.4 mcg/day of vitamin B12 (for adults and adolescents over age 14). This level was set due to evidence that 1 mcg/day is needed to maintain normal levels. Given the variability of individual factors‚ 2 mcg/day was set to cover all needs. However‚ in those individuals where a defect in absorption occurs‚ daily replacement is necessary and their needs may be higher than normal individuals.
Because 10-30% of older adults do not absorb dietary vitamin B12 efficiently‚ those over age 50 should meet the
RDA by eating foods fortified with B12 or by taking a vitamin B12 supplement. Supplements have been used to
maintain vitamin B12 levels in older adults.
Patients taking Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI’s) or H2 Blockers may be at risk for vitamin B12 deficiency due to
associated achlorohydria (low stomach HCl). Diabetic patients who take the drug Metformin‚ a B12 and folic acid
deficiency may occur‚ leading to high homocysteine levels.
