RAW vs. JPEG

I have only recently started shooting in RAW format. I was reading up on it and the mansurovs (photography life) website says that JPEG has/can display a total of 16 million colours, while 12-bit RAW images can display up to 68 billion (14-bit -> 4.3 trillion) colours. My question is that once I'm done processing raw images and convert it to a jpeg, won't I lose this additional advantage? If yes, should I just save my pictures in RAW format and not convert them to JPEG?
