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 aids in the production of DNA and RNA. Cell division and blood formation does not occur without Vitamin B-12. It is of special interest to vegetarians and vegans since it is not found in any significant amounts in plant foods. Deficiency of Vitamin B-12 is a serious health issue and should not be taken lightly. Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common cause of macrocytic anemia and has been implicated in a spectrum of neuropsychiatric disorders.
Excessive amounts of homocysteine may increase the risk of stroke, coronary heart disease, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer's disease*.

DEVA Sublingual Vitamin B-12 contains 100% Daily Value of Folic Acid and Vitamin B-6 to help reduce blood homocysteine levels*.
Many people as they age will be unable to absorb the Vitamin B12 benefits found in foods. This is because stomach's production of acid tends to decrease. 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. This is why it is advisable for people over 50 to get their vitamin B12 benefits from either Vitamin B12 fortified foods or from supplements. Vitamin B12 in these forms is not bound to proteins and are therefore ready to bind with intrinsic factor and be absorbed by the body.
