Product Information Menu
Vitamin B12 is present in foods of animal origin, including dairy products and eggs. Thus, vegetarians are more susceptible to a dietary deficiency of this important nutrient.1 Likewise, vitamin B12 serum concentrations are reported to be significantly lower in elderly population groups compared to younger groups.2-6 It is estimated that 10% to 30% of individuals over the age of 50 have low stomach acid secretion7,8 which results in decreased bioavailability of vitamin B12 from food.
Methylcobalamin is the form of vitamin B12 active in the central nervous system. It is essential for cell growth and replication.8 In some people the liver may not convert cyanocobalamin, the common supplemental form of vitamin B12, into adequate amounts of methylcobalamin needed for proper neuronal functioning.9 Methylcobalamin may exert its neuroprotective effects through enhanced methylation, acceleration of nerve cell growth, or its ability to maintain already healthy homocysteine levels.10,11

I take about eight lozenges daily under stressful times and find it very helpful. I find it gives mental energy and a feeling of centeredness.

Beating Back Peripheral Neuropathy
By Ruth, retired housewife
from Wagener, SC
About Me Health Conscious
Developing peripheral neuropathy for a few years, I asked a Health Advisor at Life Extension what I could take for it, and was directed to Methylcobalamin. I also asked my chiropractor for his suggestions, and he advised that I try massage on my feet, so I used my vibrating wand. The two treatments together made about a 50% improvement in the first month, to my delight. Then I noticed that I could take up to 8 of the Methylcobalamin daily, so I have increased my intake. I don't care if I have to keep up these treatments for the rest of my life - it beats having a leg or two amputated - as a friend did!
I would buy this product again and again
from Ballston Lake, NY
These lozenges have a nice vanilla taste and they dissolve under the tongue well. I take two per day and get good results.

Great solution to shots.
from Newport Beach, Ca
Those with B12 defiency can get shots but those disagreed with me and were a hassle too. Dissolving a little pill under your tongue is much easier and has no side effects for me. No doc visits either.
