The Healthy Habits B-12 Energy Patch is the ultimate way for absorption!

Many multivitamins only contain 1-10 mcg of the cyanocobalamin form of B-12 which then needs to be converted to methylcobalamin before it can be used by the body. The absorption of B-12 is also a serious problem with oral supplementation. For example, taking 500 mcg of vitamin B-12 can result in as little as 1.8 mcg that will be absorbed into the body. That is 99% waste!

For this reason many doctors recognize the benefits of vitamin B-12 injections and have seen extraordinary results. The downfall is, injections require a prescription and can be very expensive. With our B-12 Energy Patch we make it simple and affordable. Place the patch behind the ear once or twice weekly and you receive an adequate amount of B-12 into your system. No more are painful and expensive shots necessary for maximum absorption. With our B-12 Energy Patch you can be confident in knowing that you are getting a safe and affordable source of B-12 and eliminating the feeling of sluggishness and fatigue.

This will be sufficient to maintain adequate body stores of Vitamin B-12. Obviously it's up to you and your physician to determine whether or not expensive and inconvenient monthly injections of Vitamin B-12 are required. However, there is no scientific evidence supporting the notion that injections are worth the extra expense.

The best approach is to use the Healthy Habits B-12 Energy Patch once or twice weekly.

Each patch contains 1000 mcg of the expensive, highly absorbed and active form of Vitamin B-12 (methylcobalamin) and 400 mcg of Folic acid. This is important, because most B-12 supplements are of the cheaper, less absorbed, less active form, cyanocobalamin.

Experts agree: According to Hope Barkoukis, Ph.d., r.d., of the nutrition department at Case Western Reserve University School of medicine in Cleveland, Ohio, home of the world-Famous Cleveland Clinic, "Even if you take in enough B-12, your body must go through a series of steps to process it. As you age, one or more of the steps may break down." The problem is absorption. "It's not about getting B-12 into your diet, but about getting it absorbed properly," says dr. Barkoukis.

Weak Bones Linked to Vitamin B-12 deficiency.

A new study links vitamin B-12 deficiency with low bone mineral density in men and confirms similar, previously reported findings in women. The study was led by epidemiologist Katherine Tucker with the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (HNRCA) at Tufts University in Boston, MA.

The scientists examined the relationship between vitamin B-12 blood levels and indicators of bone health measured in 2,576 men and women, aged 30 to 87, participating in the Framingham Osteoporosis Study. They found that those with low vitamin B-12 levels were at greater risk of osteoporosis than those with higher levels.

Also, those with lower B-12 levels had significantly lower average bone mineral density--at the hip in men and at the spine in women. Unfortunately, osteoporosis usually progresses with no outward effect until a fracture occurs.

Research Ties Vitamin B-12 and Folate deficiencies with Alzheimer's disease.

People with low levels of vitamin B-12 or folate may have a higher risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, according to a study in the May 8 issue of Neurology, the scientific journal of the American Academy of Neurology. A long-range Swedish study of persons 75-years-old and older found that more than half of those diagnosed with dementia had both low levels of vitamin B-12 and folate.

"In our study, we found that low levels of either of these two vitamins were related to an increased Alzheimer's disease risk," said study co-author Hui-Xin Wang. "monitoring B-12 and folate levels is important in order to avoid unfavorable conditions, even for those elderly people who are quite healthy in terms of cognition, there is little question that many patients exhibiting symptoms of Alzheimer's may actually suffer from a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Their symptoms may be totally reversible through effective supplementation."

Folate reduces Heart disease, Experts Say...

The scientific evidence is strong enough to justify that using folic acid (Folate) may be a cheap and simple way of reducing the rise of heart disease and strokes, say researchers in the British Medical Journal. Debate continues, so heart expert Dr David Wald and colleagues set out to clarify the issue over whether raised homocysteine levels in the blood causes heart disease and stroke, and whether folic acid, which lowers homocysteine, will help reduce the risk of these disorders. They examined all the evidence from different studies to see whether raised homocysteine is a cause of cardiovascular disease. The cohort studies and genetic studies indicated a protective effect from lower homocysteine levels. Since folic acid (Folate) reduces homocysteine concentrations, it follows that increasing folic acid consumption may reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. {Source: BMJ-British Medical Journal (2006, November 28).

Folate deficiency Associated with Tripling of dementia risk and Serious Heart Problems, Study Shows.

ScienceDaily (Feb. 5, 2008) - Folate deficiency is associated with a tripling in the risk of developing dementia and a large risk in serious heart problems, suggests research published ahead of print in the Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery and Psychiatry. Validated tests were carried out at the start and end of the two year period to find out if they had a dementing illness. Similarly, blood tests were taken to assess levels of folate, vitamin B-12, and how these changed over time.

A Warning To People Taking Antacid Medicine.

Researchers at the University of Colorado School of Pharmacy warn that prolonged use of acid-suppressing drugs such as (Tagamet), (Zantac) and (Losec) can lead to a serious vitamin B-12 deficiency. They cite the case of a 78-year-old nonvegetarian, white caucasian woman with GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) who had been taking some of these drugs for 4.5 years. She was started on the drugs in February. Her vitamin B-12 level was normal (413 pg/mL) in August, but by June it had decreased to 256 pg/mL and her homocysteine level had increased dramatically to 27.3 micromol/L.
