And what about Betwelve?
B12 (Cobalamin for scientists or Betwelve for friends) is a vitamin that is essential for the normal formation of red blood cells, for the proper functioning of the nervous system and that helps reduce fatigue. It is produced by a process of bacterial fermentation which takes place mainly in cattle. It is then found in the meat consumed by humans with an omnivorous diet (i.e. meat eaters).
As humans are not able to produce this B12, if they wish to adopt a vegetarian or vegan diet they must find other sources of B12 to avoid deficiencies.
Luckily for us, since the 1970s, researchers have succeeded in recreating the conditions for bacterial fermentation in the laboratory (which occurs naturally in ruminants) making possible the synthesis of B12, also known as cyanocobalamin. So, since then, it has been possible to stay healthy by supplementing with B12 without eating fresh meat and selling one’s vegan soul to the butcher. Unfortunately, this cyanocobalamin is synthesized. It is therefore not natural and is manufactured in a laboratory.
Of course, with a name like BIO Frères (Organic Brothers), we’re not really much of a fan….
But wait, there is something new:
Betwelve our natural vitamin B12
Fortunately, there are now natural bacterial fermentation processes that produce Betwelve! Ours is therefore the result of a natural fermentation on a bed of our dear friends, the organic Shiitake mushroom… And bang, natural vitamin B12!
Our organic Shiitake powder contains a cocktail of 3 natural forms:
- Hydroxycobalamin which is not bioactive, but only needs 3 transformations to become so (it is therefore better than Cyanocobalamin),
- Methylcobalamin and Adenosylcobalamin which are bioactive and can therefore be used directly by the body.
We have put this organic-trio in tablets that we have designed with a recipe that contains as few ingredients as possible. For example, we have chosen a formula without silicon dioxide.
We take care to test each batch of tablets to ensure that they are always microbiologically safe.
If you have any doubts, or have heard that naturally occurring forms are not effective, we invite you to read our full article on the subject.
How to supplement with B12?
The European Food Safety Authority (ESFA) recommends 4µg (micrograms) for vitamin B12 for adults. Unfortunately, this recommended amount does not take into account problems with absorption that come into play when taking food supplements. So supplementing with 4µg of vitamin B12 every day is not enough to prevent deficiency (otherwise it would be too easy).
We’ve packed our tablets with 25µg of B12 (625% of the reference intake) to make sure your body gets everything it needs every day and you stay healthy. Don’t worry, there is no maximum daily dose for B12, once your body has what it needs, it simply eliminates the rest and everyone is happy.
So just take 1 tablet a day in the middle of a meal – chew well or let it dissolve – to reach the recommended RDA. Great no ?
