Vegetology Customer Service Why is sustained release important for B12?
Vegetology Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble Vitamin and the body takes what it needs with the rest excreted. This means that without a sustained release design, much of the high dose of Vitamin B12 can be lost if taken as a single 'hit'. Our special sustained release technology is highly beneficial for 2 reasons; firstly the B12 is released at a constant rate over 5-6 hours, ensuring longer-lasting benefits. Secondly, the sustained release prevents the body getting more than it needs in one single 'hit' and simply excreting (wasting) the majority of it.
