Clinicians Vitamin B12 Sublingual Drops provide the methylcobalamin form of vitamin B12. This form of B12 is more readily absorbed, has higher bio-availability and stays in tissue longer than most other forms of the vitamin.
The supplement is used to elevate B12 levels when deficient in the body, which can happen for a variety of reasons. Since the predominant dietary source of B12 is from animal products, vegetarians and vegans are particularly prone to B12 deficiencies. Individuals over 60 years of age are also more likely to be deficient.
Clinicians Vitamin B12 Sublingual Drops can also be used to sustain optimal levels of the vitamin when diet, age or other factors inhibit natural maintenance.
B12 deficiency can be difficult to detect, and the only way to verify a deficiency---and its severity---is through a blood test at a doctor's office. Some symptoms of low B12 levels include:
Because the above symptoms can have a great many other causes, it is nearly impossible to self-diagnose a B12 deficiency. Confirming levels with a blood test is highly advisable before starting supplementation.
If symptoms are caused by low B12, supplementation will begin to reverse any symptoms and improve overall health in both mind and body. Even those individuals with only marginal deficiencies often notice significant improvements as optimal B12 levels promote:
Supplementation with liquid B12, particularly the methylcobalamin form, has been shown to be equally effective as other administration methods, such as intramuscular injections.
Getting the Most from Clinicians Vitamin B12 Sublingual Drops
Dosage and administration of the supplement depends on the severity of the deficiency and several other considerations. In otherwise healthy adults, standard dosing is as follows:
Clinicians Vitamin B12 Sublingual Drops is suitable for use while pregnant or breastfeeding, but because needs can vary considerably a doctor should be consulted for the ideal dosage.
The supplement should not be used in children without explicit doctor instruction.
B12 supplements are sometimes used for other purposes, such as to alleviate symptoms of herpes zoster. Dosage recommendations for alternative uses can vary widely, and some suggest quite high daily doses. It is advisable to speak with a doctor before deviating from the recommended dose for this or any other supplement.
Patients intending to use a B12 supplement long term should be aware that all B vitamins have complex interrelationships with each other and high levels of one can, over time, lead to depletion of the others if the vitamins are not balanced. A quality multivitamin or b-complex supplement can compensate for any imbalances.
Those using B12 supplements over the long term are also advised to supplement folic acid and iron, as the three nutrients also have a complex interaction and function best when in balance.
