Methylcobalamin, an active coenzyme form of vitamin B-12, is essential for cell growth and replication. It is more concentrated than other forms of B-12 in the cerebrospinal fluid where it can be used by the central nervous system. It donates methyl groups to the myelin sheath that insulates certain nerve fibers. It may also play a role in maintaining a healthy sleep-wake cycle, as well as normal nerve function.

These lozenges are sublingual - this means you hold them under your tongue and they dissolve and are absorbed through the lining of your mouth. This is the ideal delivery system for people who have difficulties with Vitamin B12 absorption. Just be sure to move them around under your tongue as they dissolve, so absorption isn't limited to just one spot.
Vitamin B-12 is an essential vitamin. It helps form healthy blood cells and is a building block for DNA. Vitamin B-12 helps maintain healthy energy levels, but contrary to many marketing claims it will not provide an energy boost to a healthy person with normal levels of B-12.
However, vitamin B-12 deficiency can cause low energy levels. It is most likely to affect older adults, particularly those with health problems, or chronically ill people. Vegans and vegetarians may also suffer from vitamin B-12 deficiency due to the lack of animal products in their diet (the natural source of B-12). Other symptoms of B-12 deficiency are anemia, weakness, loss of appetite, fatigue, confusion, loss of balance and poor memory.
Since many people have difficulty absorbing vitamin B-12, we have found the BEST way to take it is sublingually. You simply dissolve a lozenge under the tongue and it is absorbed rapidly through the mucous membranes in the lining of the mouth. Be sure to move the lozenge around (under your tongue) rather than just leaving it in one spot, as this further increases absorption.
