Bilby, good to know...thanks... another example of a physician not keeping up the the cogent research... I have sublingual tabs and will continue to purchase them. I have to take 14 pills a day and I like the sublingual B12 because it tastes good. :-) (especially after taking one that tastes horrible)

BTW the supposed efficacy of sublingual delivery is not proven:
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti
cles/PMC1
884303/?tool=pmcentrez

"The purpose of the present study was to compare the efficacy of sublingual and oral administration of a smaller dose of cobalamin (500 g) in achieving adequate cobalamin concentrations in subjects with mild cobalamin deficiency without anaemia.
...
There was no significant difference in concentrations between the treatment groups."

The sublingual tablets are dissolved directly into your bloodstream because it dissolves under your tongue where there are tons of blood vessels, allowing for 100% absorption. I just buy mine at Walmart. My Dr. says that there is no difference and my levels are great. I have been taking it for about a year.

See the link for more info.

Directions? Put it under your tongue... It dissolves in about 30 seconds.. easy..peesy

I guess the reason I'm slightly more hesitant to take a supplement is that I can't really be sure that it is effectively absorbed. (Although I guess the same could be said for Nutritional Yeast?)

Those of you who take supplements, is there a certain brand that you feel works? Will a supplement have instructions if you are to take it sublingual?

A couple times per week I take either a multivitamin (with 150% DV B12) or a B12 supplement.

When it comes to B12 I use a bit of caution and take a supplement. :)

Hope all is well!

'nooch? I don't know what that is.... But I take a B12 (sublingual) about 4 times a week.

Hey All!

Newbie here, so sorry if this has been posted before.

Do you guys take B-12 supplements or do you use Red Star Nutritional Yeast? Or do you get your B-12 some other way?

Personally, I love the taste of 'nooch, but I'm wondering if it is the best way to get my B-12. I know that the liver stores the vitamin for a long time, so we don't need a lot of it, but I'm wondering if a supplement would be better.

Thanks!
