    Thorne Research, Bio-B12, 60 Vegetarian Capsules

    Description:
    Dietary Supplement.
    Hypoallergenic.
    In order for vitamin B12 to be absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, it first needs to be bound in the stomach to a protein called R-protein. In the intestines pancreatic proteases cause the R-protein to release vitamin B12 to bind with intrinsic factor, making it absorbable. Thorne Research's Bio-B12 contains methylcobalamin (an active form of vitamin B12) and 5-MTHF (an active form of folate) in a base of papain. Papain is a potent protein-digesting enzyme from papaya that also results in the release of vitamin B12 from the R-protein, thus facilitating the absorption process. Zinc picolinate is included for support of the pancreas, which produces other digestive enzymes that facilitate the absorption process.
