Do you feel exhausted or weak, like you’re moving mountains just to make it through a normal day? Maybe you find yourself struggling to remember names or the right words – they’re on the tip of your tongue, but your mind goes blank. Are you short of breath after casual activity such as walking or climbing a flight of stairs?
All of these can be symptoms of B12 deficiency. Low B12 levels can cause a range of painful issues, from fatigue to memory loss, and the consequences of long-term deficiency can be devastating.
B12 is vital for your nervous system and the production of genetic material like DNA and RNA – the building blocks of every single cell in your body. That means a B12 deficiency can wreak havoc with everything from your digestion to your mood. Without healthy B12 levels, you can experience exhaustion, memory trouble, muscle weakness, shortness of breath, stomach upset, and more.
B12 deficiency is serious. Studies prove that low B12 causes an increase in risk for cardiovascular disease.1 And it’s not just your heart health in danger – B12 affects your mental wellbeing, too. In fact, B12 deficiency has been linked to depression and anxiety disorders, as well as increased symptoms in autism, schizophrenia, and other mental illness.2-3 With so many grave consequences, it’s obvious why maintaining your B12 levels is a priority!
So how do you know if you need more B12? The best way to find out is to consult your healthcare provider to have your levels tested. There are also some well-known risk factors for having less optimal levels of B12.
Vegetarians and people with stomach issues are at highest risk for B12 deficiency. Typically, our bodies get B12 from eating meat. If your diet doesn’t include meat or fish, B12 deficiency is unavoidable unless you take a B12 supplement.4 The same applies to those with stomach issues or who take medications for acid reflux or ulcers – those conditions and medicines can prevent your body from absorbing B12, even when you’re a meat-eater.5
Regular drinkers and people over the age of 50 may also have less optimal B12 levels. If you’re in the habit of wine with dinner or a nightcap before bed, you may not have healthy B12 levels. Studies show that drinking alcohol regularly stops your body from absorbing the B12 in your diet.6 And sometimes, you can do everything right and still experience B12 deficiency simply because you’re getting older! Cases of B12 deficiency rise dramatically with age, and the symptoms are easily confused with Alzheimer’s or other memory disorders.7-8
Supplementing with B12 Boost can be a helpful way to maintain healthy levels of B12.* You’re going to love vegetarian B12 Boost! The great news about supplementing with B12 is that a healthy gut can readily absorb more of this vital nutrient.* Vitamin B12 is also a water-soluble vitamin, which means when you follow the dosing directions, excess vitamin B12 is automatically flushed away by your healthy kidneys, rather than building up in your system.9
B12 Boost is made with a pure, high-quality form of B12, and we test to prove it. B12 Boost is tested at every step of production to be sure it is what the label says it is and noting else snuck in – so many brands don’t have that level of quality control! It’s also free of sugar and artificial preservatives. B12 Boost couldn’t be easier to take: just pop a tiny berry-flavored lozenge in your mouth and let it melt!
Obviously, we’d prefer for you to choose B12 Boost. But no matter what supplement you decide on, please see your doctor about taking B12 if you’re at risk for deficiency. Maintaining optimal B12 levels in your body is such a simple, inexpensive way to support great health.*
The primary ingredient in B12 Boost is methylcobalamin, a naturally occurring, easily absorbed form of B12. B12 Boost also contains natural berry flavor and the sweetener mannitol (a sugar alcohol that won’t affect blood glucose levels).

B12 Boost FAQs
FAQ: What is B12 Boost?
B12 Boost is a vegetarian B12 supplement that can be ideal for:
- Great-tasting, berry-flavored lozenges
- No added sugar or artificial ingredients
- Highly absorbable, fully activated methylcobalamin
- Vegetarians and vegans
- Those over age 50
- People who drink alcohol regularly
FAQ: How do I take it?
As a dietary supplement, dissolve one B12 Boost lozenge in your mouth once daily. Every berry-flavored lozenge contains 5,000 mcg of powerful methylcobalamin (B12). For maximum absorption, it’s important to let the lozenge dissolve entirely, rather than chewing.
As with all supplements, please check with your healthcare provider to be sure B12 Boost is a good fit for your health and needs and to find out what dosage is right for you.
FAQ: How long will I need to use it?
B12 Boost can safely be taken every day for as long as you want to enjoy its health benefits. If you’re vegetarian, over the age of 50, drink alcohol regularly, or take acid reflux medications, then it’s important for you to check with your healthcare provider to check your B12 levels and find the right level of supplementation.
FAQ: The bottle label says B12 Boost contains 83,000% of the recommended daily amount. Is that right?
First of all, congratulations on being an intelligent consumer who reads labels and asks questions! Taking your health into your own hands is so important when it comes to making smart choices about your diet and supplement use.
Yes, the bottle label is correct. The reason B12 Boost contains so much more B12 than the US recommended dietary amount is because that recommended amount assumes two things: 1) You are eating sizable portions of meat daily to get B12, and 2) you are absorbing it all correctly. That’s not true for a lot of people, especially those at risk for a B12 deficiency because of age, a vegetarian diet, medication use, or alcohol consumption.
One of the great benefits of Vitamin B12 is that your healthy body is able to use exactly what it needs and safely flush the rest out of your system with no harmful side effects. And of course, if you have any concerns, please do consult your healthcare provider.

Why Buy From Us...
Simple Science-Based Solutions to Better Your Life!
With all the options you can choose from, you deserve to know the differences between what we’ve created for you and what’s out there on the market, as well as why we go to such great lengths to ensure the quality of your supplements.
Effectiveness and Bioavailability
First and foremost, the products you find here are crafted from the highest quality ingredients available. Rather than selecting ingredients for shelf life, we formulate supplements to enhance YOUR LIFE! That is why we opt for top-notch ingredients and focus on bioavailability and benefits. It might not matter to you that we use certain forms of nutrients instead of cheaper versions, but your body knows the difference.
Produced in a Family-Owned Facility that Does Third-Party Testing
A high percentage of supplements don’t even test positive for the ingredients they claim to contain! To avoid any risk of a big manufacturer cutting corners on the products we create for you, JJ made arrangements with a family-owned facility she knows well. (She was a sales representative for them long before she wrote four NY Times bestselling books to help people avoid unnecessary weight gain and painful exposure to food intolerances!) She went to the people she trusted, the people she’s seen ship back countless ingredients after their independent third-party tests did not confirm quality and efficacy. Any idea what happens to those returned ingredients? Yep – you guessed it. They go on to another manufacturer who does not invest in outside testing.
The best part of JJ’s arrangement is that this is a family operation being passed down from generation to generation. That means no risk of a big buyout that would do away with the quality control measures JJ demands from the facility that creates your specialty supplement formulas.
Taste & Consistency
You won’t find a creamier shake that provides as much protein, with as little sugar, and ZERO exposure to the 7 high food intolerance foods. You won’t find bars that avoid the harmful proteins in gluten, soy, dairy, egg, peanuts, and corn that taste anywhere near as delicious as what JJ has created for you. Your satisfaction is guaranteed, and you can rest assured the shakes and bars you fall in love with now will remain consistent in their tasty flavor and creamy texture.

About JJ Virgin
JJ Virgin owned a beautiful high-end gym in Palm Springs and catered to the Hollywood elite who needed to prepare for starring roles and world tours. She was the nutrition and fitness expert on Dr. Phil and other major TV shows (ranging from Freaky Eaters to The Doctors), and print media authorities relied on her expertise. She had all the success a certified nutritionist and trainer could want. But when she made an important discovery – almost by accident – she left all that behind to stop the needless suffering and weight gain caused by undiagnosed food intolerances.
Nutrition and fitness theory has always relied on the calories-in-calories-out model that declares your weight is simply a function of how much you eat and exercise. However, JJ saw firsthand that this was definitely not the case. Even when she sequestered challenging weight loss cases at a retreat where she controlled what they ate and how much they worked out, there were people who still GAINED weight. So she got curious – very curious.
Since JJ supported the foremost doctors and NDs with their most challenging patients, she had access to the best nutraceuticals and tests. Combining data from the doctors she worked with and clients who trusted her to find a solution to their non-stop weight struggles, JJ found that there were 7 foods that cause the body to react by protecting itself with extra fat, inflammation, skin issues, and more. She narrowed the offending foods down to the 7 most common and used that as the starting point for what evolved into her NY Times bestselling books The Virgin Diet and The Virgin Diet Cookbook.
The 7 High Food Intolerance Foods (she dubbed them the 7 HiFI foods) were removed from the diets of hundreds of willing clients for 21 days, long enough for antibody production to slow or stop. Then, one at a time for one week each, the 7 foods were reintroduced. The results were astonishing! The simple removal of these foods reduced weight significantly, plus eliminated joint pain, headaches, and skin issues, leaving both JJ and her test subjects happily shocked. The reintroduction process caused the symptoms to return, widely more apparent since antibodies were no longer present. This inspired a full-scale test of the Virgin Diet protocol and, later, the launch of the books.
You might be wondering what all this has to do with the products you’re looking at here on the JJ Virgin Store? To answer that question, you need to know that the 7 HiFI foods JJ discovered were corn, gluten, eggs, dairy, soy, peanuts, and sugar or artificial sweeteners.
(You can learn more about the 7 HiFI foods in the free PDF download HERE.)
As it turns out, most shakes, bars, and supplements include one or more of these foods under sneaky names that you’d have to be a food detective to recognize. JJ had a rapidly growing family of people relying on her to guide them away from these 7 Hi FI foods, and that meant they needed safe protein shakes at the very least. One majorly successful part of the Virgin Diet is starting your day with a power-packed protein shake, but… JJ could not find ONE brand on the market that met her stringent requirements and tasted anywhere near delicious.
She went back to her roots, to the same community of high-end nutraceutical creators, doctors, and NDs that she had first shared her discoveries with. She banded together a network of caring professionals to source the best ingredients and formulate a tasty line of nutritious shakes and bars, as well as exceptionally high-quality supplements that are free from the 7 foods. She also built and educated the team that supports you when you shop here on this store.
It has been a long and amazing journey in order for JJ Virgin and this entire team to touch so many lives. So what’s your health goal? How can we help you? Check out some of the stories of people just like you on the reviews tab, and then reach out to let us know how we can best support you.
