Dee Cee Labs Formula 512 - Vitamin B12 1000mcg

Sublingual Vitamin B12 Supplement with Folic

Dee Cee Labs Formula 512 is a cherry flavored sublingual vitamin B12 supplement containing 1000 mcg of vitamin B12 and 400 mcg of Folic acid. Vitamin B12 is also known as cyancobalamin and works in your body with folic acid to create healthy red blood cells. Vitamin B12 also keeps your central nervous system healthy. Since the only natural source of Vitamin B12 are animal products, it is important for many to take a daily sublingual vitamin B12 supplement.

Vitamin B12 Deficiency

Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause a type of anemia with fewer but larger red blood cells called pernicious anemia. It can also cause walking and balance problems, sore tongue, weakness, confusion and, in advanced cases, dementia.

Vegetarians who eliminate all animal sources from their diet (also known as vegans) may benefit from taking a vitamin B12 supplement. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, do not take vitamin B12 in doses greater than the RDA for pregnant (2.6 micrograms/day) or breastfeeding women (2.8 micrograms/day). Some people who have problems with absorption or have had bowel surgery may need injections of Vitamins B12 to prevent deficiency because their bodies can't absorb oral supplements properly. People over age 50 may also need B12 supplements because the aging process diminishes the body's ability to absorb vitamin B12 from natural food sources. More on all this below.

Benefits of Sublingual Vitamin B12

Are you sure you have enough vitamin B12 in your body? Vitamin B12, a water-soluble vitamin, is crucial in maintaining and producing healthy red blood cells and nerve cells. Vitamin B12 is also important in creating DNA which is the genetic material that comprises all kinds of cells. Vitamin B12 also lowers homocysteine levels, making you less susceptible to cardiovascular diseases. It is also necessary to synthesize fatty acids and produce energy.

While there is no doubt that you need vitamin B12 to function normally, you should think about whether you have healthy levels of this vitamin. Taking a sublingual Vitamin B12 supplement assures you are getting better absorption.

Certain groups of people are more likely to develop this deficiency because of several factors:

  • Older Adults: About 10 to 30% of older adults suffer from atrophic gastritis. This means that they secrete less hydrochloric acid in their stomachs. This prevents them from absorbing healthy amounts of vitamin B12. Furthermore, lower hydrochloric acid in the stomach may result to increased growth of the normal intestinal bacteria which feed on vitamin B12. That's why adults who are 55 years old are recommended to take vitamin B supplements to boost their intake of vitamin B12.
  • Pernicious Anemia: About two percent of older adults are plagued with pernicious anemia. Those with this condition lack the intrinsic factor that binds with vitamin B12 so that the body can absorb this vitamin through the gastrointestinal tract. Vitamin B12 can be directly injected to those with pernicious anemia, but studies have shown that higher doses of vitamin B12 taken orally is more effective.
  • Gastrointestinal Disorders and Who Had Gastrointestinal Surgery: Individuals with stomach disorders and small intestine disorders like celiac disease and Chron's disease are unable to absorb vitamin B12 from food that they eat. Vitamin B12 deficiency might lead to cognitive dysfunction, megaloblastic anemia, and even dementia. Similarly, those who have undergone gastrointestinal surgery such as the removal of the distal ileum may be unable to absorb vitamin B12 and exhibit lower levels of hydrochloric acid and the intrinsic factor. They should also be monitored for vitamin B12 deficiency.
  • Vegetarians and Pregnant or Lactating Vegans-Those who practice a strict vegan diet may have difficulty acquiring vitamin B12 from the food they eat because it is rare for vegetables to contain vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is only found in animal sources; that's why vegetarians, especially those who are pregnant or lactating ones, should take vitamin B12 supplements. The lack of vitamin B12 in pregnant women might also have a detrimental effect to their unborn babies. Likewise, infants that are being exclusively breastfed by vegetarian mothers need extra vitamin B12 supplementation or they might have inadequate vitamin B12 intake. A deficiency in cyanocobalamin intake in infants might lead to underdeveloped or damaged neurological systems.
The benefits of a sublingual vitamin B12 supplement cannot be emphasized more. Absorption of the B12 is very important for it to be effective. That's why you should consider taking Dee Cee Labs Formula 512 to make sure you have this necessary vitamin to keep producing healthy red blood cells, nerve cells, and DNA.

Dee Cee Labs Formula 512 Vitamin B12 is made in America to assure quality and safety.

I found this website when I tried to research the supplement I had been taking. I purchased the original at the Dr.'s office, but I could not find it at the drug store. This one is just what I wanted and at a better price.
