B12

Celebrate says:

NEW – Quick-melt tablets! Dissolve in your mouth in a minute! Delivering 1000 mcg of vitamin B-12, this great tasting sublingual tablet will ensure that you are receiving proper levels of this critical vitamin.

This bottle contained 90 sublingual tablets, so I did another 30-day test with them.  And again, as someone who does not like chewable vitamins as a rule, I was shocked.

The idea behind sublingual tablets, of course, is to help bypass the need for Intrinsic Factor that is decreased in the stomach in RNY patients, and decreased in the DS and VSG patients, as well as AGBers who take PPIs and need B12.  It should also be noted that the older we get, the less IF we produce in the gut and deficiencies happen simply due to age.

There’s not much to say, really.  You pop one of these suckers in under your tongue, and it dissolves.  I think it took less than 30 seconds for me, but I really never noticed.  It doesn’t have a STRONG flavor, but it’s got a hint of cherry.  Kaitlin liked them, Daniel didn’t mind them.  It’s a bottle I did not mind opening day-after-day-after day.

Nutrition in them is fairly standard:

Serving Size 1 Tablet
Folic acid:  200 mcg (50%)
Vitamin B12 (as cyanocobalamin):  1000 mcg  (16667%)

This is a great product for those looking for a sublingual B12 product.  It dissolves easily, does not leave a bad taste in the mouth, is not gritty, etc.  I recommend it as an option to try if you are looking for a sublingual B12.

Available from Celebrate ,  90 sublingual tablets for $15.95
