Best way/time to take Solgar Vitamin B12 5000mcg

My order for Solgar B12 5000 mcg has arrived. Following comments on here I have also got

1) multi vitamin

2) B complex

3) vitamin D (as also deficient in this)

I also take levothyroxine. I take this in the morning about 1 hour before breakfast.

What is the best time to take the B12? Is it better with food or an empty stomach?

It doesn't matter when you take the B12.

Empty or full stomach isn't goingto make a difference if you have an absorption problem - think that what you have is sublinguals and idea is that they are absorbed through membranes in the mouth not in the gut

I found these took about 11 hours to start working with me, so I took them in the evening so they worked the next day. If I take them in the morning I am full of energy just before bedtime. But everyone is different. If I take sub-linguals they only take about an hour to work so I take them in the morning.


If you're taking multi vitamins and a B complex, check the ingredients to make sure you're not getting too much B6.
