Description Nutritional Facts
Deficiencies of B12 and folate have been demonstrated with virtually all bariatric surgery procedures. Bariatric Advantage sublingual B12 was designed to meet the vitamin B12 needs of individuals who have undergone weight loss surgery. Each tablet provides 1000 micrograms of B12. This product is a 100 percent lactose-free formula that can be placed under the tongue or between cheek and gum and allowed to dissolve over a period of several minutes. The slow-dissolve base assures optimal contact time with the inside of the mouth so that B12 is absorbed in the mouth rather than swallowed. This tablet also contains 200mcg of folic acid. B12 with Folic Acid. Vitamin B12 and folic acid are synergistic nutrients in the body, supporting many of each other’s functions. The 200 mcg of folic acid in this tablet also means that patients who are or wish to become pregnant can get a full milligram (1000 mcg) of folic acid when they take this product together with any of the Bariatric Advantgage multivitamins.

Sublingual Preparation. Once swallowed, the absorption of vitamin B12 is highly dependant on the stomach – requiring specialized proteins such as Intrinsic Factor for absorption. Sublingual preparations, which are absorbed in the mucosa of the mouth, have been shown to be effective in the prevention and treatment of B12 deficiency.

100 Percent Lactose Free. Some percentage of patients who have undergone weight loss surgery such as gastric bypass or duodenal switch develop lactose intolerance. Others have heard about this potential problem and avoid lactose-containing foods and products without a confirmed problem. The vast majority of sublingual B12 products contain lactose for one of two reasons: 1) the tablet itself contains lactose or 2) the B12 is titrated in lactose. The latter may not show in the ingredient listing, and may cause symptoms for unidentifiable reasons. Bariatric Advantage sublingual B12 is 100 percent lactose free. There is no lactose in the base and the B12 ingredient is titrated in calcium. Thus, this is the best choice formula for those who may need to avoid lactose.

Slow Dissolving. Many sublingual vitamin products dissolve rapidly in the mouth allowing most of the vitamin to be swallowed. This is not optimal in individuals with malabsorption where the goal is to assure absorption in the mucosa of the mouth. This formula is designed to dissolve over several minutes, allowing for optimal absorption. For greatest comfort, it is suggested that the tablet be placed between cheek and gum rather than under the tongue.
