A Powerful Boost of Vitamin B12

  • Energy Boost

    B12 plays an essential role in helping the body convert nutrients from food into fuel.11 It’s needed to produce red blood cells which deliver fresh oxygen throughout the body.12 B12 is a natural energy booster, helping you to feel vital and ready for anything.

  • Cognitive Focus and Memory

    Vitamin B12 plays a role in nerve health and neurotransmitter signaling.1 Studies suggest13,14 that it is needed for concentration and cognitive processes. It may help prevent neurodegenerative diseases, including dementia15 and Alzheimer’s disease.16

  • Mood Enhancement and Anti-Anxiety

    The energy boost from B12 alone can go a long way in helping with mood.17 Research has also shown18 that B12 is necessary for producing the SAMe compound, which is crucial for neurological function, stress response and mood regulation.

  • Metabolism Optimizer

    B12 helps you to burn nutrients efficiently,11 which is not only important for energy and weight management, but also immune function, cell production and a whole host of other things.

  • Heart Health and Blood Pressure

    Research suggests19 that B12 may fight cardiovascular disease by lowering levels of homocysteine, an amino acid in the blood that in high concentrations has been linked to stroke and heart attack.20

  • Cell Production and Repair

    A big part of metabolism is making and repairing the cells in your body. B12 is important for DNA synthesis and repair,18 and to assist in the production of the building blocks such as amino acids and lipids needed for cell growth.

Fast, Easy and Vegan Way to Boost B12 and Reverse Deficiency

2500 Micrograms of Methylcobalamin B12 per Dissolvable Tablet

There’s nothing that says “a vampire sucked my blood and all I got was a lousy t-shirt” like a Vitamin B12 deficiency. Chronic fatigue and brain fog are among the most common complaints. This essential vitamin is necessary for energy production, mood regulation, cognitive support, metabolic functions, digestion and more.1,2

Lots of people are low in B12. Because almost no plants contain a high dose of bioavailable Vitamin B12 3, vegans and many vegetarians need to take a supplement to get their fill.4 People over the age of 65 have been found to be at increased risk of B12 deficiency.5 Also folks with impaired digestion easily become deficient because they lack the digestive fire needed to absorb B12. This is especially true of people with IBS, Crohn’s disease 6 and those taking stomach acid-lowering medication.7 The blood sugar regulating drug metformin has also been found to lead to low B12 levels.8

Nested Naturals B12 is an easy to chew tablet, no glass of water needed. We use the methylcobalamin form of B12 because some studies suggest that it offers better bioavailability than the cheaper cyanocobalamin form.9

The ingredients inside Vitamin B12

  • B12 for an Instant Boost

    Taking B12 under your tongue sends the vitamin directly into your bloodstream. This is awesome for people whose stomachs lack the intrinsic factor needed to absorb B12 through the digestive tract.10

  • Most Bioavailable Form of Vitamin B12

    We use the methylcobalamin form of B12. Studies suggest 9 it may be easier for the body to use than the cheaper cyanocobalamin form which the body must convert. Only the best for our friends and customers!

  • Convenient, Easy Dissolve Tablets

    Other B12 supplements come in liquid form which isn’t very convenient for on-the-go use. Our tablets that are simple to dissolve and chew are easy like Sunday morning.
