There is a web site that says you can buy B12 online without a prescription. http://www.b12-shot.com/ Does anyone know if this is a reliable source for B12? At $120 for a Dr visit I can't afford to go in for shots. I've heard that maybe the patches work, maybe not and that the sub-lingual does not work. Has anyone here tried the patches?
Thanks y'all !
Thanks Arrow for the link. Have you tried this yourself? Could you tell a difference?
I've used sub-lingual before and felt zero difference (yes, I know this was a shot link).
Thanks everyone !
Where in Texas are you? There are a bunch of places in Houston you can go to get B12 shots... they are like $15 a shot.
KGG ... I'm in Corpus. Unfortunately I can't travel to Houston. I'm a 24/7 caregiver. But thanks !
yes...I take b12 shots from trimnutrition and of course I can tell a difference :)
Why are people looking for some kind if energy hit after taking B12, which fades away?
Let the tests show the effectiveness. Find out if you have B12 issues with a blood test before supplementing, then check months later.
I had very high homocysteine level before starting sublingual B12, now have low homocysteine so I know the effects. I could not say I felt better because of B12, I just know I feel awesome now, which just comes from taking care of the whole lifestyle.
@Chuckster... I can't speak for anyone else. But for me... I can't afford tests or the Dr visits to get shots. So I pretty much have to judge if it's working by if I feel a difference.
If you insist on shots, you can get NeoB12 online from Australia for about $7 a shot. You may have to try a few places before one accepts your order for delivery to US. This is the same product Harley and Freelee use when in Aus. I'm not sure that the effect you feel from shots is what you think it is. It could be just the stimulative effect of something foreign being placed directly into your system.
Thanks so much for the help you guys ! I'm surprised that no one has tried the patches. I think I'll try some of the products mentioned and the patches (one at a time of course) and see how it goes.
Sublingual B12 is the best for me. Easy, cheap, effective. A couple of studies show oral B12 as effective as shots.
Update !!! I bought the B12 patch from the raw food world tv show (youtube). I received them Monday afternoon. I put on the first patch Monday night. The reviews I had read all talked about big surges of energy which made me wonder if some stimulant had been added. But I didn't feel any kind of energy surge and I'm VERY sensitive to stimulants. So.... I didn't notice a difference that night other than I slept deep. Yesterday I just felt a calm that I'm not used to. It's a REALLY nice calm. Hard to explain. And last night I slept VERY deep. And this morning I still feel that very calm feeling. Not sedated.... just a calm core is the best I can describe it. So *for me*... this patch IS working. Oh ! ANd Ive lost 2 pounds since I put the patch on. Nice side effect LOL. Thanks y'all !
