OVER 50? CHANCES ARE YOU'RE B-12 DEFICIENT

We need Vitamin B-12 for metabolism—all the processes in the body that depend on energy. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), this includes such vital functions as breathing, circulating blood, digesting food and keeping our brain and nerves functioning.1

Naturally, you want to do all you can to keep your body's storehouse of B-12 at a healthy level. But some people are more likely than others to suffer a Vitamin B-12 deficiency. You could have a B-12 deficiency if you:

  • Are over age 50
  • Follow a vegetarian or vegan diet
  • Have had gastrointestinal surgery
  • Have digestive disorders such as celiac or Crohn's disease1

We all feel tired and listless sometimes, but if symptoms like these are part of daily life, you might be suffering from a Vitamin B-12 deficiency. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warns healthcare providers to watch their patients for these signs of low Vitamin B-12 levels:2

Key signs of deficiency

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Heart palpitations
  • Fainting
  • Vision loss
  • Shortness of breath
  • Pale skin
  • Dementia
  • Tingling of the hands and feet
  • Anemia
  • Hallucinations

The CDC doesn't stop there: It notes that a B-12 deficiency can also show up as anorexia (an eating disorder), diarrhea and constipation… it might even boost the risk of heart disease and stroke.2

It's important to note that even if you have any of these signs, it does not necessarily mean that you have a B-12 deficiency. These signs could stem from many causes.

WHY DR. LIBBY'S SLOW-DISSOLVE?

Dr. Libby's Slow Dissolve B-12 Tablets were formulated with his patented technology that allows B vitamins to get into your bloodstream without an injection or swallowing a pill. His controlled slow dissolve process simply allows the B-12 tablet to melt under the tongue using the capillaries in the mouth to enhance the absorption of these critical nutrients right into the bloodstream and throughout the body where they are needed most. Think comparatively of nitroglycerin tablets for the relief of angina pain or chest pain. Dr. Libby thought, "if nitroglycerin could go into the blood vessels, why couldn't B-12"?

While chewing and swallowing Dr. Libby's Slow Dissolve Tablets might be tempting given their sweet taste, it is crucial to their effectiveness that you allow them to dissolve under the tongue completely. You'll still get the great taste, plus the full benefit of these nutrients… his patented slow dissolve process helps to make sure you get the B-12 you need when you need it!

  • Why do I need Vitamin B-12?

    We need Vitamin B-12 for metabolism—all the processes in the body that depend on energy.

  • How do I take Dr. Libby's B-12?

    Adults and children over 10: take 1 slow dissolve tablet daily or as directed by a healthcare professional. Let dissolve in mouth or under tongue. Do now swallow whole. For best results, we suggest taking 3 tablets a day for the first 10 to 14 days. After that, take at least 1 to 2 tablets daily.

  • How do I take Dr. Libby's Super B-12?

    Adults and children over 10: take 1 or more slow dissolve tablets daily as a dietary supplement or as directed by a healthcare professional. Let dissolve under tongue. Do now swallow whole.

  • What is the difference between Original B-12 and Super B-12?

    Original B-12 contains B-12, B-6 and folic acid. Super Sublingual B-12 has 3 times as much B-12 as the Original B-12 plus ginseng.

  • Where does the color come from in your Vitamin B-12?

    It is actually the natural color of the product. No coloring is added.

  • The label instructions say "DO NOT SWALLOW WHOLE." What happens if I just swallow the tablets?

    There are no detrimental effects of swallowing the tablets. However, you will not receive the full benefits of the product by swallowing the tablets. Dissolving the tablets under your tongue gets essential B vitamins into your bloodstream faster than if you swallowed them.
