PERQUE Activated B-12 Guard is in lozenge form for maximum uptake and optimal delivery to the brain. Studies on PERQUE Activated B-12 Guard lozenge formulation show nearly the
same B-12 uptake as from injection.
Vitamin B-12 in our food supply is estimated to be 78% less than in the 1960s. Diet alone is hard pressed to provide the necessary levels of this important nutrient. In addition, stress and reduced hydrochloric acid (HCl) and intrinsic factor production in the stomach impair absorption. The most commonly used forms of B-12 require activation in the body, making uptake quite low – rarely more than 50%.*
PERQUE delivers vitamin B-12 in its superior, activated hydroxocobalamin form. Although it is more expensive and difficult to obtain, hydroxocobalamin lasts longer and raises
B-12 blood concentrations higher than other forms. Hydroxocobalamin requires no intrinsic factor and is taken up directly by mucous membranes regardless of digestive competence.*
Hydroxocobalamin is easily converted to active but shortlived methylcobalamin and adenosyl-cobalamin as needed in the body. Hydroxocobalamin, the parent to other B-12
forms, provides better, long-lived B-12 action in the body.
