Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that is stored in the liver. It is an especially important vitamin for maintaining healthy nerve cells and, it is of special interest to vegetarians and vegans since it is not found in any significant amounts in plant foods.*
Many elder people may be unable to efficiently absorb the Vitamin B12 found in foods. This is because stomach's production of acid tends to decrease as we get older. It is this stomach acid that is necessary to break Vitamin B12 away from the proteins in food. This process must happen first, before Vitamin B12 can bind with what is called intrinsic factor in our small intestines before then being absorbed.
Vitamin B12 is highly beneficial in various forms but Deva™ Fast Dissolve B-12 contains only one form: Methylcobalamin. Methylcobalamin, the coenzyme form of vitamin B12 is a body-friendly version and it can be used in its normal form. DEVA Fast Dissolve B-12 comes as a small fast disintegrating tablet that can dissolve in mouth before swallowing so people who have difficulty swallowing pills can take it easily as well. Each fast dissolve lozenge tablet provides 1000 mcg (16,666% of Daily Value) to ensure adequate intake. Deva B12 lozenges also contain Vitamin B6 and Folic Acid for those who want to combine the three vitamins for added benefits. Tablets are pleasant tasting, dissolve in a short amount of time and, can also be chewed if desired.
