- All B vitamins mixed with saliva are readily absorbed
Unlike other B vitamins, some B12 is stored in the liver - But to avoid deficiency it does need to be continually ingested
- Sublingual literally means ‘beneath the tongue’ and these tablets will quickly dissolve in the mouth and rapidly allow the Vitamin B12 to be absorbed into the blood vessels and thus avoid the problems associated with digestive tract uptake
Higher potency with 500µg of Vitamin B12 per tablet
Sublingual Vitamin B12 provides greater absorption and uptake in the body when compared to an ordinary tablet form
The human body’s absorption of vitamin B12 appears to decrease with age and therefore low levels of vitamin B12 are more likely to be identified in people over 50
Vegetarians and Vegans are also at risk of vitamin B12 deficiency as the vitamin is mainly found in animal based foods such as meats and offal
The water solubility of the B-Complex vitamins means that generally any excess is excreted and not stored - Therefore they must be continually replaced
- The risk with vitamin B12 deficiency is that it can cause irreversible neurological damage and by the time symptoms appear it is often too late
Vitamin B12 is necessary for normal nerve cell function and is involved in protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism
