Effects on methylation
The main function of vitamin B12 is to activate enzymes necessary for two reactions critical to the process of methylation: the conversion of methylmalonyl-CoA to succinyl-CoA and homocysteine to methionine.
Proper methylation helps utilize effectively the energy from carbohydrates and fats and is also necessary for normal absorption and amino acid processing. Its effectiveness is often impaired directly both by food irritants and stressors. Because of that, methylation poses a problem for individuals doing heavy workouts.
Vitamin B12 supplementation contributes significantly to improving methylation process. Its action is especially noticeable in a quantitative assesment of plasma homocysteine in which the supplementation with cobalamin (B12) contributes to a decrease in levels of this marker.
Vitamin B12 is also extremely important to the cardiovascular system. Firstly, cobalamin is necessary for the activation of iron and thus helps to involve it in erythrocyte function. Secondly, vitamin B12 is essential for red blood cell maturation. Its deficiencies can be manifested by symptoms characteristic of anaemia. Moreover, anaemia caused by vitamin B12 deficiency is often confused with problems arising from too low iron intake.
The impact of vitamin B12 on mood
Cobalamin is also one of the regulators of the biosynthesis of serotonin, commonly referred to as the happiness hormone. It is a neurotransmitter that regulates sleep in combination with melatonin. In addition, it reduces fatigue, ensures normal emotional behaviour and controls the appetite. Its deficiencies (which can result from vitamin B12 deficiency) are manifested by chronic annoyance, emotional dysregulation, hunger pangs and depressive states.
An extremely important role of vitamin B12 is its presence in the pathway for the synthesis of choline which is a precursor to the very significant excitatory neurotransmitter – acetylcholine. Choline is also a donor of methyl groups for the aforementioned methylation process. The product has been also enriched with pure choline.
To maximise vitamin B12 absorption, three different forms of cobalamin have been added to the Now Foods supplement: cyanocobalamin, methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin. The supplement has been fortified with other vitamins which act synergistically with vitamin B12, hereby increasing its efficacy. These are other B vitamins, vitamin C and biotin.
Now Food Ultra B12 is a complex product whose effects are reflected mainly in intestinal function and energy processes which we will experience as improved well-being, increased physical fitness and mental capacity. Vitamin B12 supplementation will ensure the intake of the vitamin necessary for the proper functioning of the nervous and cardiovascular system.
This supplement is a great support for fighting the plague of the current times, caused mainly by increasing food processing – disintegration of intestinal villi. One of their main consequences are impaired methylation and many other problems resulting from this disorder. Because of that, it is suggested to increase the dosage in individuals with suspected or diagnosed problems with erythocyte functions. A triple dosage (about 10 ml) seems to be a reasonable initial amount, modified on the basis of regular blood tests.

Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.
Folic acid - also known as vitamin B9, is a synthetic form of naturally occurring folates. It needs to be transformed to folates in order to be biologically active also in the human organism. Therefore, its supplementation is recommended to people who do not have problems with methylation processes.
The majority of people associate folic acid with the period of pregnancy. It is definitely a justified association. Proper supply of vitamin B9 conditions correct development of the fetus and prevents disorders of neural tube defects in a baby.
Supplementation with folic acid also demonstrates positive influence on the functions of the nervous system of adults. Some sources say that it is conducive to maintaining beneficial emotional states. Moreover, folic acid takes part in the process of erythropoiesis, thanks to which it enables efficient production of red cells.
Supplementation with folic acid should be also considered by men who deal with low sperm quality. It was proven that complementing the level of vitamin B9 is conducive to increasing reproductive abilities of men.
What is cyanocobalamin?
Cyanocobalamin is a basic, the most commonly met form of vitamin B12 in vitamin B complexes and multivitamins available on the market.
Vitamin B12 is the most known for its influence on neurology. It takes part in building and regenerating myelin sheaths of neurons, thanks to which it contributes to the protection of the nervous system against damages. Because of the ability to increase the level of S-Adenosyl methionine, vitamin B12 may contribute to more efficient synthesis of many neurotransmitters, thanks to which it positively influences well-being and psychical condition.
This vitamin is also engaged in the process of blood production and its deficiencies contribute to the creation of megaloblastic anemia. Its deficits may also concern vegetarians and vegans, elderly people, people with absorption disorders and those using drugs neutralizing gastric acid.
Cyanocobalamin is included in the composition of many complex vitamin supplements that may be found in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
What is methylcobalamin?
Methylcobalamin is a biologically active form of vitamin B12. It is one of the two forms of this vitamin that may be used as cofactors in various reactions. It differs from popular cyanocobalamin in the presence of methyl group instead of cyanide, thanks to which it releases the organism from the need of neutralizing this harmful factor.
The methyl group from methylcobalamin may be transferred to homocysteine, thanks to which it comes back in the form of methionine in order to be further converted to SAMe, which is the main donor of methyl groups in our organism. These methyl groups may be then used in the processes of creatine production, in neurotransmitter metabolism and as DNA methylation, thanks to which we achieve proper energy level, better well-being and generally better condition of the organism. B12 is a coenzyme for three enzymes: isomerase, methyltransferase and dehalogenase.
Apart from the influence on the nervous system, the supply of vitamin B12 is also very important for the proper synthesis of red cells as well as hemoglobin and anemia prevention.
Methylcobalamin in mono-supplements and complex vitamin preparations may be found in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
Biotin (vitamin H, co-enzyme R) is in a group of B vitamins, due to the presence of sulphur compounds it is involved in the synthesis of ascorbic acid (vitamin C). Also synthesized in the intestines. It enhances the production of hormones and regulates cholesterol levels. It reduces muscle pain. It prevents hair loss and graying of hair. It soothes the skin inflammations. No toxic effects. Often combined with other B group vitamins and vitamin A. The natural sources of biotin are: whole grain bread, yeast, eggs (yolk), milk, brown rice and cheese.

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess resulting from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)
