Kirkman® Announces New Chewable Methyl B-12 2500 mcg Chocolate Wafers

LAKE OSWEGO, OR--(Marketwired - October 20, 2015) - Kirkman®, an Oregon based nutraceutical company, has introduced a new chewable chocolate flavored B-12 vitamin supplement (0523-120).

Vitamin B-12 is a water-soluble B-vitamin that is involved in many of the body’s biochemical processes. The body requires vitamin B-12 to convert carbohydrates into energy. Vitamin B-12 also supports the maintenance of healthy homocysteine levels and a healthy nervous system.

Methyl B-12, the form used in Kirkman’s new product, is the active form of vitamin B-12. It is more bioavailable than cyanocobalamin, the form of B-12 commonly used in multi-vitamin formulations. Methyl B-12 activates chemical pathways that are part of the human sulfation system, which performs several detoxification reactions. Methyl B-12 also raises the available amount of S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe) in the body, which can elevate mood and reduce stress.

Kirkman’s Chewable Methyl B-12 Chocolate Wafers offer an easy and delicious way to add methyl B-12 to your supplement regimen. The wafers have a creamy, chocolate taste and can be chewed or dissolved in the mouth, providing 2500 mcg of methyl B-12.
