this is the best b complex ive used, and ive used all kinds, including all natural b complexes from food, lypo-speric b complexes, and coenzymated bs that are not sublingual. ive noticed this formulation and delivery method alone is able to provide the slight thermogenic effect (due to increased metabolism of sugars from cocarboxylase thiamine.) this product has alot of the b's in a form the consumer usually can only wish they would produce upon consuming a regular b complex; but the fact is, and has certainly been in my experience, that the body is unable to coenzymate b vitamins in the therapeutic quantity i take them in supplementally on a consistant basis. this product has also raised my energy, whereas ive noticed other b vitamins would simply be dicarded via the urine quickly. i am however dissapointed that the product contains folic acid instead of a 5 methylfolate, especially in light of all the bad press synthetic folic acid is getting these days, and i also consider their choice to include calcium pantothenate instead of the coenzymated pantethine to depreciate the product, as pantethine has only been shown to stimulate the adrenals when it is brought directly into the bloodstream, as a sublingual would accomplish. i for one would pay more for this product were these adjustments made to master it

Welllll, the taste leaves much to be desired (the taste isn't awful - I've had worse - but it's not necessarily palatable either, and the kids don't seem to like them AT ALL), and the tablets are quite large, which translates to taking quite a long time for it to dissolve. Most of our family has tried this, and the kids seem to prefer another brand's "drops" over having to wait so long for these to dissolve each time they take them. I also must agree with them... 30+ seconds for the drops to do their thing is much more reasonable than the minutes required for these tablets to dissolve. We'll stick with the drops!

The taste is absolutely horrible, very bitter. Also, it takes very long for the tablet to dissolve, which would be no problem if the taste was acceptable.

The taste is slightly orange, mostly bitter. I'm disappointed because I have Source Naturals' peppermint B-12 sublingual and they're delicious. I can barely stand this one.

The taste makes me want to skip this supplement every day. I have to force myself to take it and I am about to find something else to replace it.

Have only used 2 days Do notice subtle increase in energy, sense of wellbeing and increased appetite...have had little for over a year. However, although taste is acceptable, these dissolve very slowly and although they are round, the edges are a bit sharp in a small mouth I will probably try the much touted cream delivery system next.

A pleasant tasting easy to assimilate form of getting your B vitamins especially if you have absorption issues

I like it because it is sublingual.
