Now a double-blind, scientific study has confirmed the efficacy of vitamin B-12 and Folic Acid in preventing memory loss and improving cognition as we age.
Researchers from the Australian National University have shown that essential B vitamins combat stress that results in a loss of memory and normal thought patterns that cause abnormal brain aging.Published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, scientists found that long-term supplementation of daily folic acid and vitamin B-12 promotes improvement in cognitive functioning after a period of two years, particularly in immediate and delayed memory performance.
B vitamins are crucial for nerve transmission and are needed in higher amounts as your stress level increases. Health-minded adults will want to ensure that they obtain an optimal daily dose of these important vitamins from diet or supplemental sources.
Researchers supplemented one group of study volunteers with an oral dosage of 400 micrograms of folic acid and 100 micrograms of vitamin B-12 daily. This group was compared against a control set of participants that received a placebo.
After the two-year study period, Dr. Walker concluded “Long-term supplementation of daily oral 400 mcg folic acid and 100 mcg vitamin B-12 promotes improvement in cognitive functioning after 24 months, particularly in immediate and delayed memory performance.”

The study concluded “that long term supplementation of just 400 mcg of folic acid and 100 mcg of Vitamin B-12 promotes improvement in cognitive functioning after 24 months.”
Our liquid B-12 Folic Acid formula contains a whopping 2,500 mcg of both B-12 and Folic Acid.
For years, most people thought that the only way you could get supplemental vitamin B-12 into your system was through a needle injected into the hip. That myth, propagated by the injectable B-12 industry, has been proven false. Oral absorption, particularly in a liquid form, is a far more convenient and much less painful way to absorb vitamin B-12.
Also, our ever popular Energizer Mix contains nearly half of the recommended amounts of B-12 and Folic Acid in each packet – not to mention the extended boost in energy for hours – without the crash associated with so many other so-called “energy drinks” full of sugar and caffeine – but minimal nutritional value.
