Need Advice On Which Vit B12 To Get

Recommended Posts

I used to take B12 1000mcg monthly by injection, but decided to skip it last month in hopes that I didn't need it anymore. Well, I think I do. The exhaustion finally hit me yesterday. I would like to try the pill form before going back to the shots. I've been doing the shots since 2004. Anyway, I remember a thread about B12, and wonder if the folks who take it can pass on the brand and possibly dosage they are taking.

Thanks

Hey,

I used to take B-12 injections once a week for a month, then every two week, then once a month. I do not take injections presently.

I take Nature's Bounty Sublingual B-12, 2,500mcg. They disolve under your tongue and go directly into your blood stream.

I certainly notice when I do not take it.

Hope that helps.

I use B-12 Blast sublingual drops from Bricker Labs. 1000 mcg. of B-12 and 400 mcg. of Folic Acid (per dropper full). I checked with them on 6/18/07 to verify that it's gluten-free and it is.

I start the B-12 injections today. Sure hope this clears the fog and fatigue. Nice to see it makes a noticable difference in you folks.

I as suprised that this treatment went on for years for some, and that folks seem to be looking for an oral alternative.

Why not just do the shots?

I take B12 plus Folic Acid from www.bevkovitamins.com My doctor is the "bev" of bevko. She developed her own line of supplements. This is a chewable lozenge form (kind of like a tums or rolaids) so it is really easy to take. Per my dr's instructions I take 1 per day...not sure of the dosage right off hand

For me, time. To get off work and to the doc's takes a chunk out of my day.

I use the B12 1500 from GNC and I think its fantastic (says gluten, corn, soy, dairy and yeast free right on the bottle).

I also have started drinking Dasani Plus which has extra B vitamins in it also.
