In this video you'll discover the nootropic benefits of Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin). Including why we use Vitamin B12 as a nootropic, recommended dosage, side effects and clinical research.
Vitamin B12 is water-soluble and one of eight B-Vitamins.
Vitamin B12 is essential for the synthesis of DNA, RNA and neurotransmitters, the maintenance of myelin sheaths protecting axons, and red blood cell formation.
Vitamin B12 is a cofactor in the synthesis of neurotransmitters dopamine, GABA, norepinephrine, and serotonin. Affecting alertness, cognition, memory and mood.
Vitamin B12 is needed to regulate homocysteine. High homocysteine levels are linked to inflammation that can lead to blood vessel damage. And possible plaque buildup leading to heart attack or stroke.
Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) deficiency is common among Western adults. Brain fog and poor memory are two key warning signs your deficient in Vitamin B12. Other warning signs include fatigue, lack of energy, muscle weakness, mood swings, depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Vitamin B12 is the largest vitamin we know of so it’s not as easily absorbed as others. As you get older the body loses the ability to transport Vitamin B12 in the cells in your large intestine where it’s pulled into your bloodstream.
The older you get the more difficult it is for you to get ANY B12 into your body. So the older you get the more likely you’ll need to supplement with Vitamin B12.
B12 in its natural form is only available through animal food sources including seafood, beef, chicken, pork, milk and eggs. So vegans and vegetarians are particularly prone to B12 deficiency in younger people.
Neurohackers who supplement with Vitamin B12 report a reduction in brain fog, better sleep, improved focus and mood, colors seem brighter and more intense, energy levels improve, and an overall improved sense of well-being.
If you are Vitamin B12 deficient you may feel a big boost in energy. And feelings of deep exhaustion can disappear within a few days.
The recommended dosage for Vitamin B12 deficiency is 2,000 mcg daily for a week, then 1,000 mcg doses of B12 once per week for a month. Then your maintenance dose is 1,000 mcg monthly.
