Now Foods, B-12, 5000 mcg, 60 Lozenges
By Now Foods19 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Vitamin B-12 (cyanocobalamin) is a water soluble vitamin necessary for the maintenance of a healthy nervous system and for the metabolic utilization of fats and proteins. Vitamin B-12 is also essential for the synthesis of DNA during cell division and therefore is especially important for rapidly multiplying cells, such as blood cells. In addition, adequate intake of Vitamin B-12, along with Folic Acid and Vitamin B-6, encourages healthy serum homocysteine levels, thereby supporting cardiovascular health. Because Vitamin B-12 is found predominantly in animal products, strict vegetarians are at risk of developing Vitamin B-12 deficiency and may benefit from supplementation.
As a dietary supplement, take one lozenge daily. Chew lozenge or hold in mouth until dissolved. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW B-Complex, Folic Acid, B-6 and TMG.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This is the first time I have used this form of vitamin B-12.They have a very pleasant taste and are very convenient to take. I find if I take them each day I am not as tired as I normally am.Although at the present I am only on one lozenger per day I think two would be more appropriate.
I have been buying a more expense brand and find these to be better. The tablets are smaller and actually dissolve reasonably quickly. I like the folic acid inclusion as well. Great value and really pick me up.
