Pure Vegan Vitamin B12 Methylcobalamin Spray
Pure Vegan is proud to introduce another product to our current lineup of convenient, compact, rapid absorbing oral sprays. According to the Physicians' Desk Reference for Nonprescription Drugs and Dietary Supplements, oral absorption (spraying into the mouth and swallowing) is much more effective than other forms of delivery.
Pure Vegan's B-12 Spray is a cut above other vitamin B12 products since it's in the methylcobalamin form. Methylcobalamin is the most absorbable form of vitamin B12. This is extremely important when taking a vitamin B12 supplement, especially for a vegan diet. Since B12 is found mainly in meat sources, a vegan diet is often deficient in this important daily vitamin.
Sprays are known to be more effective in activating the saliva glands than capsules, pills, lozenges or drops. This allows the vitamin B12 to enter the bloodstream quickly and efficiently.
Vitamin B12 is one of the most important daily nutrients a person can get. Yet most people are not getting effective and adequate amounts of it. When people purchase the regular "off the shelf" B12 sublingual tablets, absorption rates are not equally effective.

Unlike the inexpensive and common cyanocobalamin, Pure Vegan's methylcobalamin readily available for cellular absorption. Cyanocobalamin has to go through the first pass of the liver, where a small amount of methylcobalamin is produced. Then it enters the general (i.e. systemic) circulation. Another unique feature is the method of delivery. Sprays are known to be more effective in activating the saliva glands than capsules, pills, lozenges or drops. This allows the B12 to enter the bloodstream quickly and efficiently.

The American Heart Association suggests that patients with high levels of homocysteine should be strongly advised to be sure to get enough folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 in their diet. When homocysteine reaches high levels in the body, it can be harmful to the heart. Evidence suggests that high homocysteine levels can cause cardiovascular problems, and is associated with stress and brain disease. The optimal safe range for homocysteine is under 6 micromoles per liter. One study revealed that a person who took 2000mcg of oral methylcobalamin per day for four months reduced homocysteine levels from 113.4 micromoles per liter to 8.2, (1) Methylcobalamin is the only form of B12 that can directly participate in homocysteine metabolism. (2) According to Ray Sahelian, M.D., vitamin B12 plays a major role in red blood cell activity, methylation reactions and immune system regulation. Evidence indicates methylcobalamin has some metabolic and therapeutic applications not shared by other forms of vitamin B12. Government studies revealed that Americans' intake of vitamin B12 is less than 70 percent of the recommended daily allowance. Pure Vegan's B12 Spray more than compensates for that by providing 500 mcg per spray.
