sublingual Vitamin B12 pills.... reaction anyone?
I read that Vitamin B12 is more readily absorbed when taken under the tongue as it goes directly into the blood but taken orally it may not be absorbed as well in the gut in some persons. I took the sublingual B12 brand that my doctor said he himself takes from Sam's. At first I felt fine, but after a couple of weeks I began having strange feelings ... groggy, weak, etc. Then I began to wonder if it could be the Vitamin pills? I stopped taking them & in a couple of weeks I felt fine again. I tried this twice with the same strange results before mentioning this to my doctor. He thought maybe it might be one of the additives so suggested trying another brand. Same strange reaction to this new brand! Gave the rest to a relative who says she feels great since taking them ... go figure?! I have had Vit. B12 injections in the past & no problems! The sublingual way seemed so sensible to me... but now ..?
Anyone else have this reaction to sublingual Vit. B12?
