Optimal Liposomal Active B12 with L-5-MTHF by Seeking Health provides 5000 mcg of vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin per serving, plus 100 mcg of methylfolate. Vitamin B12 is crucial to the formation of healthy red blood cells, energy production, nervous system support, cognitive function, and healthy homocysteine regulation. Unlike cyanocobalamin, the most commonly used form of vitamin B12 in dietary supplements, methylcobalamin is considered an active "coenzyme" form of B12. Cyanocobalamin must be converted by enzymes into an active form to be utilized within the body. Methylcobalamin, on the other hand, is directly used in B12-dependent enzyme functions. It is the predominant form of B12 in blood plasma and other bodily fluids.

Folate is crucial for healthy growth and development, healthy homocysteine metabolism, assisting DNA repair, and supporting neurological processes. L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF), an active "methylated" form of folate, is included in this product to help support proper absorption and utilization within the body.
Optimal Liposomal Active B12 with L-5-MTHF uses only natural non-hydrogenated phospholipids to make up the liposomes that set this advanced delivery method apart from the rest. Liposomes have long been used by nature to deliver life sustaining nutrition via mother’s milk and by pharmaceutical companies to deliver various active ingredients.
