For people with B12 deficiencies it is popular to have injectable vitamin B12; however, research supports that oral administration of an appropriate dosage has been shown to produce as good of results as injectable preparations in treating vitamin B12 deficiency.
Methylcobalamin (vitamin B12) is active immediately upon absorption, while other forms (e.g., cyanocobalamin) must be converted to methylcobalamin in a two-step process. Methylcobalamin demonstrates exceptional activity in areas where other forms are simply not active. B12 supplementation is recommended for vegetarians and those with B12 deficiency. It helps form red blood cells, prevents vitamin B12 deficiency and helps maintain good health.
In people with low levels of B12, supplementation is very effective in improving energy levels and restoring mental function.
Check with your doctor or health professional on what is the best form and potency for you.

I have had low B12 levels for years (180-200) despite being a carnivore. The best I could achieve with three monthly injections was high 300's. Since february last year, I replaced injections with this product and my levels are now 680!!! and for the first time ever my red cell level count in well into normal range. It makes sense, since people like me probably have low B12 level because of poor intestinal absorption.
I didn't notice any benefits
I didn't notice any benefits
I had read a lot about the benefits of b12 and was really excited to receive this product. However after 6months of using it I haven't noticed any effect. I will point out that I do already take a B supplement so maybe thats already doing the job but as letting B12 dissolve under your tongue is meant to be the best method of absorption after intra-nasal I expected more out of this product but it didn't deliver.

B-12 good for energy?
Posted by Reviewer1246993 on Jan 09, 2017
This is supposed to improve mental 'acuity and energy. Some days it seems like it is doing this and some not so much. Could just be more than it can handle some days?

The form of Vitamin B12 is readily absorbed, and an easy supplement to take consistently. Over time, it has made a positive difference.
Readily Absorbed B12

This is a good way to get B12 absorbed into the body. It becomes necessary to increase B12 as we age. This helps keep me feeling young.

I've been taking this for a while. And it has helped stretch out my need for injections of b12 from weekly to about monthly. But if my stress levels get to high I can chew heaps of these and still need an injection. I also give them to my 4yo daughter.
