Microorganisms, primarily bacteria, are the only known organisms that manufacture B12. These bacteria often live in bodies of water and soil. Animals get B12 by eating food and soil contaminated with these microorganisms.
BOOSTS ENERGY LEVELS- If you’ve been dragging lately it could be that you’re not getting enough Vitamin B12. Along with the other B Vitamins, B12 is known for it’s ability to keep you alert and feeling energized.
REDUCES DEPRESSION- Normally, vitamin B12 helps to build and maintain these myelin sheaths, keeping conversations between cells going and the nervous system running strong. However, when there is a lack of vitamin B12 in the tissues, as seen with dietary vitamin B12 deficiency and other conditions, the myelin coating on cranial, spinal and peripheral nerves is compromised. Without this shielding, nerve signaling becomes slow and sporadic, leading to a host of neurological symptoms from trouble walking to changes in cognitive function and mood. B12 also helps with the production of neurotransmitters, those tiny chemical messengers that communicate emotional information throughout the brain and body. It does this in collaboration with a compound called SAMe (or S-Adenosylmethionine in fancy scientific terms), which is naturally found throughout the body as well.
GOOD FOR BRAIN HEALTH- In addition to helping stave off and treat Alzheimer’s, Vitamin B12 also provides healthy benefits for the brain, and helps prevent what is known as “brain shrinkage” which can lead to conditions like dementia when you’re older. In the here and now it can help you to feel less mentally fatigued and on top of your game.
GOOD FOR THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM- Vitamin B12 assists the digestive system in its proper functioning, and you’ll notice that if you don’t get enough of it you are more prone to constipation and a sluggish digestive system. Since backed up digestion can lead to general toxicity in the body, it’s important to keep things moving at a steady pace.
PROMOTES HEALTHY SKIN- Vitamin B12 provides great benefit to the skin, helping to repair skin cells and keep your skin looking its best. Getting the right mix of B vitamins can help conditions ranging from dryness and redness to acne and other blemishes. It’s simply something you don’t want to run low on if you want your skin to be radiate and clear.
DEFICIENCY- If you suffer from tingling limbs, fatigue, irritability, bouts of depression, feeling run-down (especially in the afternoon), memory loss, brain fog, lightheadedness,, these are all symptoms of b12 deficiency.
- Nutritionally supports cardiovascular function.

why a patch
What happens when you swallow your supplements:
When you swallow a dietary supplement pill, it travels to your stomach, where the pill is immediately introduced to a powerful mix of digestive acids. Depending on what other foods you’ve eaten, the supplements in you stomach remain there for up to 4 hours as part of the normal digestive process. During this process the supplements in the stomach continue to be degraded by powerful digestive stomach acids.
After approximately 4 hours, the remaining supplements’ nutrient value starts its journey into the small intestinal tract where it will be absorbed into the bloodstream and delivered throughout the body. Studies have shown that on the average, as little as 2% of the original dietary supplement taken survives the digestive process and is absorbed by the body, dramatically reducing the dosage originally taken and its resulting effectiveness.
With a transdermal patch:
As soon as a patch is applied to the skin, body-heat activates the supplement formula and the nutrients begin to transit through the skin into the small blood vessels called capillaries that are plentiful under the skin. This is direct delivery of nutrients to the bloodstream or what is called Transdermal Delivery because nutrients are absorbed directly through pores in the Derma (skin).
Because the nutrient delivery process is done over a period of many hours while a patch is worn, we call this ‘Time-Release Delivery’.
-Maximum Dosage Absorbtion – Patches allow you to absorb up to 10 times the dosage that comparable orally taken supplements deliver.
-Patches release nutritional supplement ingredients directly into the bloodstream, by-passng the harsh acidic environment of the stomach and digestive tract that destroys most of the original nutrient value of supplements taken orally.
-Patches deliver their nutritional supplement load directly to the bloodstream the moment a patch is applied to the skin, versus up to 4 hours with supplements taken orally that must pass through the stomach and digestive system.
-Incredible convenience – there is nothing easier than applying a patch before bedtime or in the morning after showering, instead of having to remember to take multiple pills day after day.
