and when it comes to vitamin B12 supplementation, a lot of I mean one of the things that we know is that you have to have a healthy gut really to to optimally absorb vitamin B12. Is there a I mean aside from the the methylated form of it, which you recommended any other tips to support B12 absorption. Yeah,
it's you know, for most people it's not not an issue all you know, by the way more and more people are becoming vegans and all vegans need to take B12. And I recommend this this particular form of B12 because it is the most active and all vegans should be taking at least a thousand micrograms or 1 milligram of this methyl cobalamin for this effect and sleep. Cycle disorders the dosages are 325 milligrams.
But if you're like, for example, one of the millions of people on acid blocking medications, don't you need stomach acid, you know adequate stomach acid, for example to absorb vitamin B12. If you're taking it in pill form. Yeah,
if if in the pill form to get it from our food, we have this intrinsic factor that secreted by the same cells that secrete acid. So there's that at correlation, but at this high dose that were using you you're able to absorb that deep B12 through a process called diffusion. So it's kind of like when you're in one corner of a room and someone sprays a perfume bottle it eventually diffuses across the entire room with the higher concentration of B12 that we're taking in this in these supplemental forms. We absorb a small Of that and that that absorption is enough to produce these these effects. So sublingual is best. Methylcobalamin is best and you know, as far as the B12 that we would get in other, you know supplements. We just need such a small amount for most people they would be able to absorb it through this process of diffusion without the need of hydrochloric acid. Or even intrinsic factor
hmm good to know
