the one you put behind your ear?
if not, do you use b12 supplementation? is it working for you (are you absorbing it?)
have you had tests done? (urinary MMa, homocystine levels, etc?)
im thinking about getting the b12 energy patch, but i dont have medical health insurance so am not going to be getting my levels tested any time soon ...
do you know anywhere i can get them done for free/cheap since i dont have medical insurance?
all feedback is appreciated!
B12 sublingual: always absorbs and cheapest, simplest.
thank you for the feedback! are you taking the methylcobalamine? i have read that cyanocobalamine is not the human active form. ive actually even heard of people who didnt absorb the sub linguual ...
Yes, I hear methyl is better, and I've taken it. Don't know though on the differences. Sublingual absorbs, the same as injection, at a slower rate, until proven otherwise. "Those" people must have done something wrong.
oh gotcha. cyanocobalamine is apparently the human non active form of b12 .. apparently your liver CAN convert cyano to methyl, but needs a methyl donor, and most of the time it doesnt work. also, im not sure if its considered a b12 analog like the ones in spirulina, but b12 analogs can actually interfer with proper absorbtion of human active b12 and show up on peoples tests as normal b12 levels, when in reality they are just full of b12 analogs. this is just all stuff ive researched/read/heard so it may not be 100% accurate as I am probably forgetting something. hm maybe ill try the sublingual if i can find ones with methylcobalimin
thank you! please let us know how it goes :)
They are probably referring to things like seaweeds and other sea vegetables. Although, I do think plants have b12, just not enough because our soils are depleted.
plants usually containn analog non human active forms of b12 ...
