Want More Energy? And to feel better?
You may be missing this important and simple solution
We’ve all heard it – get plenty of rest, exercise regularly, eat healthy, and you’ll have energy to burn. True? False! In fact, many adults who live healthy lifestyles are still frustrated by the lack of energy they feel. That’s because many adults are missing an important but simple solution to having more energy -- vitamin B-12.
This simple vitamin, common to everyday foods and multivitamins, is crucial to ENERGY. BUT, the question you must ask yourself is:
“Is my body getting the B-12 it needs for energy?”
Medical science’s answer to this question
The experts agree that as you get older, your ability to absorb B-12 through the digestive process continually decreases. In fact, many adults are unable to absorb B-12 into their body at all! This can be catastrophic. Why? Because B-12 plays a key role in the production of chemicals that help regulate sleep, mood, appetite, and ENERGY!
Renowned doctors, Paul Cheney and Charles Lapp, conducted an important study with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients. They gave these patients high doses of B-12 injections. The B-12 shots dramatically increased ENERGY in 80% of the participants and helped them sleep better. Now, doctors everywhere are administering B-12 shots to help their patients have more ENERGY. Yet, the shots are often inconvenient, painful and expensive. So is there another way? Something that is easier, more affordable, and less painful? Yes, there is – TriVita Sublingual B-12.
The best way to get the B-12 you need
In 1984, a patent was awarded to Dr. Alfred Libby, M.D. for his formulation of Sublingual B-12. Dr. Libby also added B-6 and folic acid to enhance the medical benefits of the Sublingual B-12. This original TriVita Sublingual B-12 formula melts under your tongue and speeds the essential B nutrients directly into your bloodstream where they immediately begin to help your body. It’s an affordable, easy and painless way for taking B-12, B-6 & folic acid every day.
So join the millions of others who have experienced the increased ENERGY that comes from TriVita’s Sublingual B-12. This supplement isn’t sold in stores – it’s only available only from TriVita.

Why B vitamins are so essential to your wellness
Our brains and nerves must have sufficient quantities of B vitamins to function properly, yet as we age, our bodies’ ability to absorb them diminishes. When our Vitamin B reserves become depleted, we can end up with poorer mental functioning, greater premature aging, susceptibility to illness and much more. Here’s what Dr. Scott Conard has to say about it:
Vitamin B-12 Deficiency – Its Undesirable Results and Risk Factors

The Best Way to Fight Vitamin B-12 Deficiency Anemia
"At least 3.4 million Americans have been diagnosed as anemic, and millions more may be undiagnosed or at increased risk of developing anemia."

What exactly is anemia?
Anemia is a condition in which your blood is low on healthy red blood cells. Without enough healthy red blood cells in circulation, your body can't get the oxygen it needs so you end up with symptoms like:
- Pale skin
- Decreased appetite
- Weight loss
- Abdominal pain
- Tingling and numbness in the hands and feet
What causes vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia?
B-12 deficiency anemia (Megaloblastic anemia) has a variety of causes:
- Pernicious anemia, an autoimmune disease that interferes with your stomach's ability to produce intrinsic factor, which must bind with vitamin B-12 until it can be absorbed in the small intestine
- Gastrectomy, gastric bypass surgery, or removal of the last portion of the small intestine where B-12 is absorbed
- Digestive disorders such as bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine or parasitic infections
- A dietary lack of meat, eggs, or dairy products -- the primary food sources for Vitamin B-12
- Crohn's disease
- Pancreatic disorders
Why is B-12 so important?
B-12 is vitally necessary for the proper formation of red blood cells. Blood consists of a liquid called plasma and three types of blood cells:
- White blood cells that help fight infections
- Platelets that help your blood clot after a cut
- Red blood cells that carry oxygen from your lungs to your brain and other organs and tissues. Your body must have oxygenated blood to function -- it gives your body its energy.
All three types of blood cells are produced by regular cell division in your bone marrow -- a red, spongy material located within the cavities of many of your large bones.
If your original cells have an inadequate supply of vitamin B-12, your new red blood cells will be abnormally large and your white blood cells will have abnormal nuclei. Both will be destroyed more rapidly in the bone marrow and fewer will make it into your bloodstream, robbing your body of the oxygen it needs to function properly. Large, dense, oversized, red blood cells (RBCs) are seen in vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia.
Vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia develops gradually, allowing the body to adapt so that the anemia may be more severe than the symptoms indicate. Left untreated, serious problems can occur in prolonged and severe anemia. Anemia can lead to secondary organ dysfunction or damage, including heart arrhythmia and congestive heart failure.
How is vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia diagnosed and treated?
Many types of anemia exist, each with its own cause -- the cause may be an iron or vitamin deficiency, blood loss, a chronic illness, or a genetic or acquired defect or disease. It may also be a side effect of a medication, so it's important that you work with your health care provider to confirm that you have anemia, what type of anemia it is, how severe it is, and how to properly treat it.
Doctors diagnose vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia through blood tests that measure the level and appearance of red blood cells. In vitamin deficiency anemia, you'll not only have fewer red blood cells, but the red blood cells that you do have will be large and underdeveloped. In advanced deficiencies, white blood cells and platelets also look abnormal under a microscope.
Vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia can often be successfully treated with supplements. However, in many cases, the anemia will reoccur if vitamin B-12 supplementation is stopped. Anemia is a condition that can have serious consequences if left untreated -- but it is also a condition that can be readily managed by current therapies.
What's the best way to get the B-12 you need?
If your doctor has diagnosed you or you think you may be at risk for a vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia, you need the best B-12 supplement available on the market today.
In the past, B-12 options have been limited to highly ineffective oral tablets or painful and expensive injections. Today, you can choose Dr. Libby's original, patented Sublingual B-12, B-6 & Folic Acid.
The key is the Dr. Libby’s sublingual delivery method -- you put a great tasting, quick dissolving tablet under your tongue that can speed the vitamins directly into your bloodstream. Once there, they can quickly go to work fighting the potentially devastating effects of anemia.
And remember, TriVita Sublingual B-12, B-6 & Folic Acid is the only brand on the market that can use Dr. Libby’s original, patented process. Don’t go without it another day.
Are you worried about memory loss?
Today, more and more people are worried about the onset of memory loss in their lives. If you've ever experienced memory loss, you know about how frightening it can be.
In fact, the loss of mental abilities, such as memory, is one of the most fearful aspects of growing older.
The idea of forgetting what we said earlier, or not recognizing the faces of our loved ones, or continually misplacing things can be very scary.
- There is an easy solution that could help your memory as you age
- The solution is Vitamin B-12. It’s a common vitamin often found in everyday foods and multi-vitamins that you may already be taking. B-12 is extremely vital in brain and nerve functions, playing an integral part in the memory process. However, according to medical science, as you age, your body starts losing its ability to absorb Vitamin B-12 through food and pills.
In fact, many adults may be unable to absorb Vitamin B at all – they have to receive expensive B-12 shots each month.
People have experienced wonderful results with B-12 shots over the years. But now, there is something more convenient than a B-12 shot. It’s Dr. Libby's original, patented Sublingual B-12, B-6 & Folic Acid from TriVita. It gives you all the B-12 you need, so you can avoid the inconvenience, pain and expense of an injection.

The Trivita Sublingual Difference
The swallowed method of taking Vitamin B-12
When oral B-12 tablets are swallowed, they end up going on a long trip through your complex digestive system before your body can absorb them. This process, besides being slow, can also greatly diminish the amount of Vitamin B-12 available for absorption in the intestines because the tablets’ potency is reduced by passing through the strong acid bath in your stomach.
The sublingual method (under the tongue)
In contrast to swallowed tablets, TriVita offers you the sublingual method for taking your B 12 vitamins. With this method, you place the B-12 tablets under your tongue and let them dissolve there. This sublingual method results in the B-12 being more rapidly absorbed into your body and the potency is greater because it’s not lessened by the harsh stomach acid. This method is also more important with age because body’s ability to absorb B vitamins from food and swallowed oral pills decreases significantly.
Your first choice – choose the better method
With TriVita’s Sublingual B-12, B-6 & Folic Acid, you don’t have to worry about your B-12 losing its potency as it slowly works its way through a digestive system obstacle course. And you don’t have to deal with the pain and expense of a B-12 injection. Instead, you can deliver these essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream the quick and easy way – sublingually!
Your second choice – choose the better sublingual vitamin
With TriVita Sublingual B-12, you’re getting the ONLY sublingual B-12 vitamin on the market that uses the original, sublingual process invented by Dr. Libby: it’s so unique, he received a patent for it. No other product can offer you this powerful method. So choose the best choice for meeting your Vitamin B-12 needs – choose TriVita Sublingual B-12, B-6 and Folic Acid, in either our Original or Super formulations.
The Science of Sublingual
The word “sublingual” literally means “under the tongue.” It’s a method of absorbing a substance via the mouth rather than via the intestines. With the sublingual method, the substance is absorbed more rapidly and directly into the blood vessels. This works because the substance is absorbed through the buccal mucosa and into the sublingual vein where it has direct access to the blood circulation and is then carried throughout the whole body. Medical science has been using this method for years in the administration of cardiovascular drugs, steroids, and some barbiturates. The sublingual method has been life-saving for individuals who have had to rely on its speed and efficiency during times of critical emergency.
Here is why you might not be getting your B-12 with those other vitamins
When the B-12 vitamin enters your body via the stomach (through food or oral pills), the acids there separate the B-12 from its protein source. It then must combine with intrinsic factor cells in the stomach. This B-12/intrinsic factor complex travels to your intestine, where it is absorbed in the terminal ileum. The absorbed complex is then transported via blood plasma and stored in the liver.
The interruption of any of these steps affects your body’s ability to absorb B-12. Here is a list of common interruptions to B-12 absorption:
- As you age (over 45) or become overly reliant on acid suppressing agents like antacids, your ability to produce gastric acids in the stomach decreases, meaning that the B-12 is less likely to be released from its food source.
- An autoimmune or other disease reduces the production or blocks the action of intrinsic factor, resulting in intestinal malabsorption.
- People with pernicious anemia have decreased production of intrinsic factor.
- Abdominal surgery reduces B-12 absorption.
- Gastrectomy eliminates the site of intrinsic factor production.
- Blind loop syndrome results in competition for vitamin B-12 by bacterial overgrowth in the lumen of the small intestine.
- Surgical resection of the ileum eliminates the site of vitamin B-12 absorption.
- Pancreatic insufficiency such as fish tapeworm infection and severe Crohn's disease affect absorption.
Therefore, to rectify any Vitamin B-12 deficiency you might have, order our Sublingual B-12 today. Over 11 million boxes have been sold.
Dr. Alfred Libby – a name to remember!
The inventor of the Sublingual Absorption Process
Only TriVita has it
Dr. Libby, a renowned nutraceutical pioneer, worked to help his own patients feel better every day. And he finally achieved an incredible breakthrough: A sublingual delivery method that was so unique, he received a patent for it. This delivery system was so potent, it was able to give similar mental energy results as B-12 shots, but without the shots’ added pain and expense.
The Story behind Dr. Alfred Libby’s Revolutionary B vitamin Breakthrough
In the late 1970s, Dr. Alfred Libby was already an authority on therapeutic nutrition and a longtime associate of two-time Nobel Prize Laureate, Dr. Linus Pauling. At this time, Dr. Libby began to explore an alternative delivery system for Vitamin B-12. The goal was to bypass the stomach where this essential nutrient is not easily absorbed.
First doubted, his sublingual method was later deemed a complete success
In early spring of 1980, Dr. Libby approached his colleagues with his new theory that Vitamin B-12 could be delivered to the bloodstream sublingually (under the tongue). Biochemists and his medical colleagues were quick to dismiss the idea. However, Dr. Libby was persistent – his skeptics eventually decided to give his theory a try, even though they were convinced it would fail.
Six weeks later the first study was underway. And not long after that, Dr. Libby’s Sublingual B-12 invention was deemed a complete success -- blood levels of Vitamin B-12 increased dramatically. Dr. Libby’s patented sublingual delivery method can deliver almost all of the vitamin's power directly into the bloodstream.
Lowering homocysteine and its risk of stroke, diabetes and Alzheimer’s
Dr. Libby closely followed B vitamin research throughout his lifetime – with special attention to the work of Dr. Kilmer McCully, who pioneered a B Vitamin/Homocysteine theory in the 1960s. Dr. McCully theorized, and later proved, that excess homocysteine (an amino acid found in everyone’s body) was the culprit in a large percentage of heart disease cases.
Both Dr. McCully and Dr. Libby knew that the B vitamins -- specifically B-12, B-6 and folic acid – reduced excess homocysteine and helped prevent heart disease. By the 1990s researchers began to uncover homocysteine’s link to other killers – including stroke, diabetes and Alzheimer’s, among others.
As a result of this research, Dr. Libby took a new look at his patented Sublingual B-12 method, and added the perfect homocysteine-fighting proportions of B-6 and folic acid. The final result of 20 years of dedicated research and testing is TriVita’s unique, patented Sublingual B-12, B-6 & Folic Acid -- doctor-formulated for maximum absorption.
