TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Vitamin B12 is a vital (and essential), water-soluble nutrient that aids in many bodily functions, including nerve function and the production of red blood cells.
B12 is usually adsorbed from daily consumed foods, such as meats and dairy. However, when a person suffers absorption issues from pernicious anemia, chronic alcoholism, or other disorders, then he or she can take sublingual or injectable forms of the vitamin as a way to increase the body's ability to absorb B12.
Also, because excess B12 is expelled through urine, the vitamin is considered non-toxic, even when taken in large doses. While there is no established limit for B12, there is a limit on a person's ability to absorb the vitamin. Intake recommendations by the Office of Dietary Supplements suggest that the adult body requires approximately 2.4 micrograms (mcg) of B12 per day.
Sublingual vitamin B12 is a non-prescription product that comes in the form of tablets. A person places the tablet under his or her tongue until it dissolves and enters the blood stream through the sublingual glands, or salivary glands in the mouth. This form also serves as an alternative to the oral tablets of B12 where a person swallows the product, bypassing the gastric action in the stomach.
Injectable vitamin B12 can only be obtained through the prescription of a licensed doctor or health care provider. The product comes in the form of shots and is inserted directly into a muscle, usually the thigh or upper arm. This form serves as an alternative to sublingual tablets and is often the prescribed treatment for B12 deficiency disorders, such as pernicious anemia.
The conclusion is that either of these forms of vitamin b12 may prove beneficial to those seeking to add the supplement to their daily routine. However some digestive issues or preexisting conditions may hamper the availability and effectiveness of oral b12. B12 injections do not have those issues since they are injected into the muscle then rapidly dispersed into the blood stream. It is also well known that injectable b12 lasts longer in the system vs. oral b12.
