Vegan Vitamin B-12 (Sublingual)
Vitamin B12 is
a water-soluble vitamin that is stored in the liver. It is an especially
important vitamin for maintaining healthy nerve cells and it aids in the
production of DNA and RNA. Cell division and blood formation does not occur
without Vitamin B-12. It is of special interest to vegetarians and vegans since
it is not found in any significant amounts in plant foods. Deficiency of Vitamin
B-12 is a serious health issue and should not be taken lightly. Vitamin B12
deficiency is a common cause of macrocytic anemia and has been implicated in a
spectrum of neuropsychiatric disorders.
Excessive amounts of homocysteine may
increase the risk of stroke, coronary heart disease, osteoporosis, and
Alzheimer's disease*.In combination with folic acid and vitamin B6 vitamin B12
serves to control homocysteine levels.DEVA Sublingual Vitamin B-12 contains 100%
Daily Value of Folic Acid and Vitamin B-6 to help reduce blood homocysteine
Many people as
they age will be unable to absorb the Vitamin B12 benefits found in foods. This
is because stomach's production of acid tends to decrease. It is this stomach
acid that is necessary to break Vitamin B12 away from the proteins in food. This
process must happen first before Vitamin B12 can bind with what is called
intrinsic factor in our small intestines before then being absorbed. This is why
it is advisable for people over 50 to get their vitamin B12 benefits from either
Vitamin B12 fortified foods or from supplements. Vitamin B12 in these forms is
not bound to proteins and are therefore ready to bind with intrinsic factor and
be absorbed by the body
Vitamin B12 is
highly beneficial in various forms but DEVA Sublingual B-12 contains only one
form: Methylcobalamin. Methylcobalamin, the coenzyme form of vitamin B12 is a
body-friendly version, which means that no metabolic steps are required for its
