Hi I take Jarrow Methylcobalamin B12, 1000mcg, 100 Lemon Flavour Vegan Lozenges. They seem to be quite popular!

Solgar used to be popular but has gone stupidly expensive.

Some members are happy with Jarrows, I think they do 5000mcg and 1000mcg.

I use Cytoplan, they only do 1000mcg.

Thank you

Is it the B12 methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin ones from cytoplan

Yes, methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin are both active forms of B12.

Thanks again

I use Jarrows too. I get these though, Jarrow Formulas ‑ Methyl B12 5000 mcg. ‑ 60 Lozenges, they’re a bit stronger than the lemon ones.

I like the Jarrow formulas 5000iu. I'm not sure what the flavour is supposed to be - just tastes of chemicals to me, but the effect is good. I tried swanson, but it didn't work as well.

If you want to bypass your stomach I use Vie Patch B12 Methylcobalamin high strength patches once a week. Apply a patch to to clean hairless skin for 24hrs. My blood tests so far have come back good for B12 these were recommended by a naturopath.

Sublinguals being discussed here bypass the stomach.

Yes I know but there are other alternatives to bypassing your stomach such as patches. I personally take so many individual supplements in tablet form not lozenges, a once a week patch is a nice and easy option. Just a thought SeasideSusie for flo-jo100 to think about.

I started off with patches because they seemed like a good idea but didn’t love them. I think they felt ‘sweaty’ but they are an easy way to do it if you like them.

I found it was easier to stick a pill under my tongue, but then I already take pills for my blood pressure on a daily basis so it wasn’t difficult to remember.

Do you buy these yourself - (patches, I mean) as they sound a good option

Yes either on the vie patch website or amazon I normally buy 3 packs at a time for a reduced pack price. It’s not every bodies choice as in the case of Fruitandnutcase but for me 1 patch a week keeps me topped up and they bypass your stomach. My B12 was very low when I started and it was thought I had an absorption problem.
