Vitamin B-12 is essential

We need Vitamin B-12 for metabolism—all the processes in the body that depend on energy. This includes such vital functions as breathing and circulating blood, digesting food and keeping our brain and nerves functioning.1 Vitamin B-12 even helps make DNA, the genetic material in all our cells.2

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, including those who:

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

Key signs of deficiency

We all feel tired and listless sometimes, but if symptoms like these are part of daily life, you might be suffering from a deficiency of Vitamin B-12. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warns healthcare providers to watch their patients for these signs of low Vitamin B-12 levels:3

  • 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.3

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. However, it does mean that your healthcare provider might want to rule out B-12 deficiency as a possible culprit.

Get the B-12 you need

Experts say that ideally, we should get the B-12 we need from a healthy varied diet. If that isn't enough, supplementation is recommended. Vitamin B-12 can be given as a shot, with a prescription, or without prescription in a form that dissolves under the tongue (sublingual).1

Why sublingual from TriVita?

With no artificial sweeteners or preservatives, these made-in-the-U.S. B-12 supplements are premium quality. Unlike some chain store brands of B-12, TriVita's products are subject to high quality standards, from Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) Compliant ingredients and manufacturing to third-party testing and certification.

  • How do I take TriVita's Sublingual B-12?

    Adults and children over 10: take 1 sublingual 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 TriVita's Super Sublingual B-12?

    Adults and children over 10: take 1 or more sublingual 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.

  • What benefits does Sublingual B-12 offer over Vitamin B-12 shots?

    The key advantage of TriVita's Sublingual B-12 is absorption. Maximum absorption of Sublingual B-12 is ensured by TriVita's original, patented delivery system. Our exclusive process delivers B vitamins directly into your bloodstream when dissolved under your tongue.

    B-12 injections can be painful, inconvenient and expensive.

  • 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.
