Hydroxo B12 with Folinic Acid by Seeking Health provides 1,000 mcg of hydroxocobalamin along with 1,360 mcg DFE (800 mcg) of folate as folinic acid in an easy-to-deliver lozenge form. Not only does hydroxocobalamin easily convert to methylcobalamin (a coenzyme form of B12 utilized within the body), but it is also well tolerated by individuals who have trouble taking "pre-methylated" B vitamins. It may also have the unique benefit of helping to support healthy cellular detoxification. This makes it a great option for individuals who are looking for a non-methylated alternative to the more common cyanocobalamin form of B12. Unlike cyanocobalamin, which consists of cobalamin (B12) attached to a cyanide molecule, hydroxocobalamin does not contain any potentially harmful compounds that require additional processing for safe removal from the body.*
Similarly, folinic acid offers a preferred form of folate that quickly converts to L-methylfolate, the predominant form of folate in circulation in the body. It may be easier for individuals who are sensitive to methylated nutrients to tolerate than supplemental L-methylfolate. This convenient combination of readily available B12 and folate in non-methylated forms offers an alternative to our popular Active B12 with L-5-MTHF Lozenges.*
Folate is essential for cell division, growth, and the formation of new red blood cells. Vitamin B12 is required for proper red blood cell formation, neurological function, and DNA synthesis. Vitamin B12 functions as a cofactor for methionine synthase and L-methylmalonyl-CoA mutase. Both of these B vitamins are needed to support methylation.*
