For the new vegan Vitamin B12 Compact, GSE uses natural vitamin B12 from Shiitake mushrooms. Our product contains 7,5 µg vitamin B12 in just one tablet, which represents 300 percent of the recommended daily dosage. This edible mushroom, the second most cultivated after the button mushroom, is very appreciated not just for its flavoury taste, as in the Traditional Chinese Medicine Shiitake is known as one of the most effective and vital mushrooms. Almost no other vitamin has such a powerful bearing on our well-being and our physical capacity like vitamin B12. It is needed, among other things, for the formation of new blood cells, for the cell growth, or for the functioning of the nervous and immune system. Our bodies cannot produce vitamin B12 autonomously, therefore, it is important to provide an adequate supply through the daily diet. Given that vitamin B12 is contained mainly in foods of animal origin, especially vegans and vegetarians (but not only) should make sure of a sufficient intake.
