Sublingual B12: for energy, mood, memory and heart
Low energy, pale skin, chronic fatigue, constipation, depression, digestive disorders, dizziness, drowsiness, difficulty sleeping and many other symptoms can indicate a B12 deficiency.
In 1948, vitamin B12, or cobalamin, was identified as the nutritional factor that prevented pernicious anemia, a deadly disease of the red blood cells. B12 is needed for formation of myelin, the protective covering for all nerve endings, and for production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that supports memory and learning. This important nutrient also helps form the body’s genetic material (DNA and RNA), and participates in cellular metabolism. With folate and B6, vitamin B12 helps reduce levels of homocysteine, a substance linked to heart disease risk.
Are you getting enough?
The body needs small amounts of this nutrient, regularly. Historically it was difficult to cure anemia with B12 supplements because the nutrient couldn’t make it through the harsh environment of the GI tract. B12 injections have since been used effectively to treat anemia and increase energy. However, studies have shown that sublingual absorption of B12 improves bioavailability and speeds the body’s metabolism of these nutrients, providing an alternative to injections.
Who needs B12?
There are some plant sources of B12, but the richest food sources are meat, eggs and dairy products. Vegetarians, vegans and children who don’t eat these foods, can have deficiencies of this nutrient. Seniors or anyone having difficulty with mood, nerves or sleep can benefit from B12 supplementation. Studies indicate a B12 deficiency doubles the risk of depression, and B12 may also help prevent Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. High doses of B12, administered under strict supervision, have produced good results in the treatment of sleep-wake disorders. Low levels of melatonin in the elderly may be related to low B12 status and supplementation may improve sleep quality, daytime alertness and concentration, while enhancing mood.

Methylcobalamin is a coenzyme form of vitamin B12. A coenzyme is a naturally occurring compound, such as a vitamin or mineral, that partners with specific enzymes to help maintain the body’s ability to metabolize nutrients. Preformed coenzyme forms of B vitamins, including methylcobalamin, offer immediate, direct nutritional support, even for those with genetic differences that impair metabolism of standard B vitamins.
Natural Factors Methylcobalamin B12 is offered in a sublingual tablet – no need for injections or to swallow pills! This advanced formula, available in different potencies, is ideal for anyone who wants the highest quality, most bioactive form of this key nutrient to prevent B12 deficiency and help maintain good health.
