- B-12 in its superior, activated hydroxocobalamin form
- Lozenge form for maximum uptake & optimal delivery to the brain
- Longer lasting B-12 action in the body compared to other forms
- 100% natural
- Gluten-free, binder-free
Rise Well is proven to be the most absorbable and easily converted form of vitamin B-12.
Vitamin B-12 in our food supply today is estimated to be 78% lower than in the 1960s. With diet alone, it is thus hard to provide the necessary levels of this important nutrient. Rise Well delivers vitamin B-12 in its superior, activated hydroxocobalamin form. Hydroxocobalamin requires no intrinsic factor and is taken up directly by mucous membranes regardless of digestive competence. This form of B-12 lasts longer and raises B-12 blood concentrations higher than other forms.
For this reason, it is the only form we use in Rise Well, which is in lozenge form for maximum uptake and optimal delivery to the brain. Studies show that oral vitamin B-12 uptake can be as effective as B-12 injections.
