Ray & Terry's B-12 contains 90 tablets per bottle.
Folic acid (folate) is also essential to DNA synthesis. It is one of the few nutrients that works better when taken as a separate supplement than as part of food. Folic acid is included in Ray & Terry's B12 supplement because of their intertwined functions.
It is very difficult to properly absorb B12 through the digestive tract. For this reason, the vitamin is often taken intravenously, which can be inconvenient, painful and expensive. Our sublingual product is designed to absorb quickly into the system by dissolving under the tongue and entering the bloodstream directly. This method allows for maximum absorption of the B12.
From the FDA's website: "As part of a well-balanced diet that is low in saturated fat and cholesterol, Vitamin B12 may reduce the risk of vascular disease. FDA evaluated the above claim and found that, while it is known that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol reduce the risk of heart disease and other vascular diseases, the evidence in support of the above claim is inconclusive."
