A Sorbitol Free Sublingual B-12

Recommended Posts

Hi, i'm trying to find a subligual b12 that is gluten/casein/soy free -- that is also sorbitol free.

And i can't seem to find one.

I've read that Methylcobalamin in a b12 is better to have. I was going to order from kirman labs, but their's has sorbitol in it... Does anyone know of a company that doesn't? Much thanks :)

I haven't done much research, but it seems like all the sublinguals I take have SOMETHING like that in it. They have to make it so it tastes good and one or more of the -tols seems to be what they use. I'll be starting B12 injections this week, so I can bypass the gut altogether.

Mine is wheat, gluten, soy, dairy, and egg free. But, it has Xylitol.

I don't take any oral b-12 either because I can't find one without all the stuff in it. I also am doing 2x weekly methyl b-12 injections. They are great! :)

Are you sure you would react to the tiny amount of sorbitol that would be in a tiny sublingual pill? I generally react to sugar alcohols, but the sorbitol in the B12 pill I take doesn't bother me. (In case anyone wonders, it is the vegetarian formula one from Twin Labs.)

I am interested in this topic though. I'll look for that spray next time I'm in a store and browse through the B12 sublinguals, too.

Thanks for the replies...i googled the pure advantage spray, and i'm going to buy some.

In regard to the little amount of sorbitol in a b12 question, i try to avoid sorbitol in general, and any other sugar substitutes mainly because i don't think they are healthy, and i've had stomach issues when i ate something not knowing that it was in it in the past.
