Xobaline (pronounced Zo-buh-lean) contains a metabolically active form of vitamin B12 plus folic acid in an ideal 1:4 ratio in easy-to-take sublingual tablets. This dual nutrient combination offers a significant advantage over "B12 only" formulas, especially in regards to red blood cell production and the manufacturing/resynthesis of RNA, both crucial components for increased aerobic capacity and muscle repair/building. Xobaline is another of our specialty supplements that the truly dedicated competitor can't be without. If you want the "W", then you need the "X".
RNA - An endurance essential
RNA is a long chain nucleic acid composed of linked nucleotides, a polynucleotide, which is the building block basis for all living tissue cellular reproduction. Science suggests that improving RNA "status" within the body results in, among other benefits, gains in both lean muscle mass and mitochondrial resynthesis. When this occurs, the athlete may expect increases in energy capacity, metabolism, and enhanced recovery after exercise.
Folic acid & vitamin B12 - Necessary and inseparable nutrient partners
Both folic acid and vitamin B12 have key roles in the manufacturing and resynthesis of RNA, which, as mentioned earlier, is crucial for the regeneration of soft tissue lean muscle mass. Folic acid, when ingested, is converted to folinic acid, the required co-factor for the resynthesis of RNA. In addition, folic acid plays an important role in the lowering of homocysteine, elevated levels of which are believed to be a primary culprit in various cardiovascular diseases. Lastly, folic acid is a required substance for the synthesis of heme, the iron-carrying component of the hemoglobin in red blood cells.
Vitamin B12 is an essential co-factor for the conversion of folic acid to its metabolically active form and, like folic acid, plays an important role in the reduction of elevated homocysteine levels. B12 improves the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats, which of course plays a role in energy production. B12 is known to alleviate the tiredness associated with fatigue and is required for the formation of red blood cells.
In order for these two vitamins to provide maximal benefits they need to be taken together. Dr. Bill Misner writes, "Folate [folic acid] & B12 must be together for gains hoped for in RBC [Red Blood Cells], homocysteine methylation, cardiovascular effects, and downstream DNA strand synthesis." With the newly formulated Xobaline formula you get both folic acid and B12 in an ideal 8:2 ratio.
