Eligen B12 is a once-daily oral non-prescription medical food shown to normalise B12 levels without the need for an injection.
Eligen B12 is indicated for the dietary management of patients who have a medically diagnosed vitamin B12 deficiency that is associated with a disease or condition that cannot be managed by a modification of the normal diet alone.
Eligen B12 is the first product to market using Emisphere’s advanced EligenÂ® Technology, which utilises salcaprozate sodium (SNAC) to chaperone B12 through the gastric lining and directly into the bloodstream independent of intrinsic factor, a protein made in the stomach that normally facilitates B12 absorption.
This groundbreaking technology may have potential applications across a broad range of diseases and conditions. Most notably, EligenÂ® Technology is being used to develop oral formulations of insulin and GLP-1 receptor agonists.
The updated guidelines from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) state that medical foods, including Eligen B12, no longer require a prescription. Now, it can be conveniently purchased at eligenb12.com and shipped to patientsâ homes.
