~ The Aceva Difference ~
Aceva’s Active B Liquid features a unique ratio of the two biologically active forms of vitamin B12, methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, in a highly absorbable sublingual form. The majority of other B12 products contain cyanocobalamin form which requires the liver to convert it to one of the active forms in the body. Cyanocobalamin also contains a cyanide molecule and can potentially be toxic to the body. Other products may only contain methylcobalamin which is beneficial, but does not provide the adenosylcobalamin form which is the “mitochondrial ready” form. Their combined use offers a myriad of benefits that would not be able to be achieved alone.
The Various Functions of B12¹¹
Vitamin B12 is essential in the production of red blood cells and therefore how oxygen is carried throughout the body. In addition to helping get oxygen to the cells, vitamin B12 also supports energy production since it’s a cofactor for enzymes involved in the Kreb’s cycle which leads to the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency of the cell
Central Nervous System (Brain)
Vit B12 is also essential for the development, myelination, and function of the central nervous system, helping form the myelin sheath around neurons. Acting as a critical brain nutrient, it’s involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters that send signals to the rest of the body for many important functions.
Alongside folate, vitamin b12 regulates homocysteine metabolism which is a protein that has been linked to mood and cardiovascular issues if elevated in the blood. Due to its role in methylation, it’s essential for many functions in the body including gene expression, DNA repair & maintenance, and nervous system health.
Methylcobalamin contains a methyl group beneficial for methylation reactions including those needed for DNA repair and maintenance, homocysteine metabolism, neurotransmitter production, fetal development and nervous system health. It’s been shown to bypass several potential issues in the intestinal absorption cycle which means it has higher bioavailability.¹³
Adenosylcobalamin is the mitochondrial form of vit B12 and is the primary storage form our bodies tuck away in the liver for times of need. Research has shown this form of vit B12 along with carnitine promoted cerebral mass growth, neuronal volume and neocortical layer thickness in the brain and fully restored normal structure of the neocortex in the brain and has been shown to eliminate work rate inconsistencies and improve mental productivity.¹⁴⁻¹⁵
Symptoms & Behaviors Common with B12 Deficiency:
- Chronic fatigue & weakness
- Muscle aches, joint pain, and trouble exercising
- Poor memory and/or ability to focus
- Mood changes include increased depression and anxiety & nervousness
- Dizziness and/or shortness of breath
- Poor appetite and/or digestive problems like constipation, nausea, diarrhea or cramping
Shake well before each use. Take 5 drops 1-2 x daily on an empty stomach or as directed by your healthcare professional. It’s recommended to take in the morning or early afternoon and wait at least 15 minutes before eating or drinking anything else. For best results, place drops underneath the tongue and hold for 90 seconds and swish it around in your mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing.
