How does the different types of sublingual B-12 effect you? I have tried both the cyto...and the metho...and haven't been able to tell much difference. The reason I ask, is the cyto type of B-12 is at Costco in a big bottle and is much cheaper than the one I use currently.

Thoughts?

The metho is supposed to be easier to absorb the nutrient. I've noticed the price difference too!

There is certainly a difference. The cyano type uses cyanide for the co-enzyme. It must be converted by the liver, and of course, the liver must dispose of the cyanide. The methyl type requires no conversion, and is the type found most abundantly in the spinal column, and other parts of the body. The methyl type is therefore superior, and thus costs more. You get what you pay for.

Best I've found is made by Source Naturals. It's a sublingual tablet, which obviously stays under the tongue far longer than a liquid, giving your body far more time to absorb the vitamin than a liquid would.
