I would 1st like to apologise for a rant I made a little while ago concerning taking lots of different supplements (potassium, D3, et al). I was confused and all I really wanted was to feel better, rather than chasing my tail wondering what I should be taking?
I have now been able to get Jarrow 1000 mcg sublingual, and I am now taking 5 a day? Some symptoms have subsided a little bit, I think, but it is very up and down. Some days I seem to feel a bit better, then next day downhill and rock bottom again.
For those of you who do not know me, my symptoms are fatigue, anxiety (feeling nervous all the time), difficulty in walking straight and standing still without feeling like I will fall over (balance problems), bad memory, numb and tingling right hand, chest pains. Apart from that, I feel fine, LOL!
My question is this though? I have read quite a few articles on absorption of sublingual, and they have stated that B12 cannot be absorbed through the membrane under the tongue because the B12 molecules are too big? Can anyone clarify, or refute or verify that fact? It would be a bit pointless holding the lozenge under the tongue for 15 minutes if it does nothing? Just chew it and swallow it instead? As we all know, only 1% would then be absorbed in the stomach, so I guess it would take an awful long time to feel any benefits?
I tried to find B12 injectable on line, with the intention of self injecting (which I hate the thought of stabbing a needle into myself and maybe hitting a vein anyway?) but could not find anywhere that sells hydroxy, and it would be very unlikely if I could have them shipped here as ampoules anyway, as it would be seen to be a medicine by customs here! I did find one place (Oxford Biosciences?) that sells 40,000 mcg methyl (in pure form to which you add saline to produce an injectable solution?). Anybody know about this place/supplier and method?
Thanks for any info.
