Designs for Health Vitamin B12 Lozenges 60ct are a great tasting, high dose vitamin B12 product. Each berry flavored lozenge contains 5000 mcg methylcobalamin, the activated form of vitamin B12. They are designed to deliver B12 through the mucous memebranes in order to bypass the need for intrinsic factor, a protein produced in the stomach known to be needed for maximal GI absorption of B12. The body is able to use methylcobalamin more efficiently than cyanocobalamin, the most common form of supplemental vitamin B12, yet a form not found in nature and a form which is not biologically active. In comparison, methylcobalamin is better absorbed and has a higher retention rate in the body’s tissues. Supplementation using methylcobalamin eliminates the need for the liver to convert cyanocobalamin to the active forms of vitamin B12. The body is able to absorb B12 directly through the mucosal tissue of the mouth, making these B12 lozenges an ideal method to help increase the body’s level of this critically important vitamin. Vitamin B12 lozenges are a great alternative to B12 injections that are often given to overcome a B12 deficiency and to support conditions associated with suboptimal B12 levels. They are an ideal way to help increase levels of B12 quickly, when higher doses of this vitamin are desired.
