Vitamin B12 Ingredient Manufacturer

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble nutrient that plays several key roles in our bodies, including protecting neurons, synthesizing serotonin, and improving formation of red blood cells.

Since our bodies cannot produce vitamin B12 on their own, we have to depend on supplements for meeting our daily recommended intake.

1. Prevents Anemia By Improving Red Blood Cell Formation

Vitamin B12 is vital for red blood cell (RBC) production. 

Deficiency of this vitamin stops the RBCs from developing properly, which can lead to several health issues, including megaloblastic anemia.

When your body has sufficient amounts of vitamin B12, your RBCs are small and round. On the other hand, when your body is running low on this vitamin, the RBCs become large and oval.

Since large cells are difficult to pass from bone marrow, they enter the bloodstream at a slower pace. This disruption in flow causes megaloblastic anemia — which can make you feel:

  • Dizzy
  • Drowsy
  • Fatigued

2. May Prevent Loss of Neurons

Vitamin B12 seems to prevent memory loss and cognitive dysfunctions. 

Deficiency of this vitamin is linked to brain atrophy, a mental condition that leads to neuron loss — which can cause memory loss and dementia.  

According to a study conducted on people at early stages of dementia, a combination of vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acids slowed down memory loss and cognitive problems.

Another study concludes that everyone should take a vitamin B12 supplement because it can enhance brain performance even in people without a clinically proven deficiency.

3. May Reduce Depression

Vitamin B12 can help improve your mood.

While its effects on mood are not fully understood, what is known is that it plays a major role in production of serotonin — a chemical responsible for regulating mood.

Since vitamin B12 is directly linked to higher levels of serotonin, people who consume it daily have a lower chance of suffering from anxiety and depression.

According to this study, taking antidepressants along with vitamin B12 supplements is significantly more effective at reducing depression, compared to taking antidepressants alone. 

Another study suggests vitamin B12 affects mood in two ways:

  1. It significantly reduces your risk of suffering from severe depression.
  2. It increases your chances of recovery from major depressive disorder (MDD).


Health Issues Associated With Vitamin B12 Deficiency

People deficient in vitamin B12 have an increased risk of suffering from several health issues, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Severe depression
  • Memory loss and dementia

So if you want to save yourself the discomfort caused by the health issues mentioned above, then add a vitamin B12 supplement to your diet.


Daily Recommended Intake

The daily recommended intake (DRI) of vitamin B12 varies by age:

  • 1.8 micrograms for children (9 to 13 years)
  • 2.4 micrograms for teenagers and adults.
  • 2.6 micrograms for pregnant women and 2.8 micrograms for women who’re breastfeeding.

Furthermore, the DRI also varies by the condition the user is trying to treat. Some conditions require a much higher dosage of vitamin B12 than others.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
