Importance of vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 helps contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, normal energy metabolism and normal psychological function.
It also contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system, red blood cell formation and supports the normal function of the immune system.
Who needs it
B12 is a notoriously difficult nutrient to absorb in the gut. At most only 1% of our dietary intake will be absorbed by the body, and that relies on digestive efficiency and the presence of a chemical called intrinsic factor. Tiredness, stress, ill-health, poor or limited diet will all reduce this absorption further.
As it is predominantly found in animal products, B12 supplements are recommended for those following vegetarian and vegan diets and Pernicious Anaemia sufferers.

The vitamin B12 in our Boost spray is methylcobalamin. This has been chosen for its superior cellular absorption and ensures that it can be absorbed straight into the blood stream via the rich vascular system in the cheeks and under the tongue.
Chromium is another nutrient that is difficult to obtain through diet alone, but has shown to be well absorbed through the mucosal membrane. While B12 and chromium do not need to be taken together, Chromium helps balance blood sugar levels and like B12 helps reduce tiredness and fatigue.
There are approximately 192 sprays in the 25ml bottle. With the recommended daily dosage of four sprays the Boost spray will last 48 days.
As the Boost spray contains green tea extract it does contain a natural form of caffeine, however this is a very small amount, with just 0.5mg per four sprays.
The purpose of the green tea in the spray is not this caffeine element, but that it is a natural preservative as well as being an antioxidant.
A study published in The Lancet (June 2016) has proven that green tea provides a chemical called epigallocatechin gallate, which contributes to improved cognitive function.
There are no interactions with any other products or medications when using the Boost spray.
Green tea is used as a natural preservative as well to reinforce the antioxidant element.
It also provides a chemical called epigallocatechin gallate which contributes to improved cognitive function as proven by a clinical study published in The Lancet (June 2016).
This is down to personal preference, either way provides optimal absorption. Though you may find it easier to take them all together to ensure you don't forget a dose.
The oral sprays do not need to be taken with food or a drink so can be used at your convenience.
Our studies have found that the best place for absorption are on the inside of the cheek. When using multiple sprays we would recommend spraying in this area.

No. The oral spray delivery mechanism avoids primary processing by the digestive system, meaning it can be taken at any time of day with or without food. The active ingredients are delivered directly into the bloodstream via the mucosal membranes in the mouth.
