Vitamin B12 Sublingual lozenges - high doses as methylcobalamin
Vitamin B12 is one of the water-soluble vitamins and has many functions in the human body. It is involved in the formation of red blood cells, is a component of some enzymes, but also plays an important role in energy metabolism and is important for a well-functioning nervous system.
Vitamin B12 Sublingual contains methyl cobalamin, the biologically active coenzyme form of vitamin B12. In contrast to conventional vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin), it can be used directly by the body without first having to be converted into the biologically active coenzyme B12 (methyl cobalamin)
That is why methyl cobalamin lozenges have a higher bioavailability than cyano cobalamin and are the better choice for an optimal vitamin B12 supply.
The vitamin B12 contained in vitamin B12 sublingual lozenges is absorbed through the oral mucosa, bypassing absorption through the gastrointestinal tract. A vitamin B12 deficiency due to an absorption disorder can thus be avoided or compensated for. This is the decisive advantage over conventional vitamin B12 tablets or vitamin B12 capsules.
Vitamin B12 intake through the digestive tract can be severely restricted in people suffering from gastrointestinal problems. This is always the case when gastric acid production is restricted, e.g. due to chronic inflammation of the stomach lining or due to stress.
Or when part of the stomach has been removed by surgery. This means that there is not enough gastric acid available to release vitamin B12 from the diet.
Sometimes people over 50 are also advised to take vitamin B12 lozenges, as gastric acid is often not produced in sufficient quantities from this age. As a result, vitamin B12 cannot be removed from the diet and a deficiency can occur.
In a small part of the population, gastric juice lacks the intrinsic factor due to an autoimmune disease, which is formed by certain cells of the gastric mucosa. However, this is necessary so that vitamin B12 can be introduced into the body via the intestinal cells.
Vitamin B12 is one of the water-soluble vitamins and is very safe. The body uses the amount needed individually at a certain point in time and excretes the rest in the urine. Vitamin B12 has no side effects even in very high doses.
The currently recommended daily requirement of 2.5 mcg is the amount that humans need in order not to get any deficiency symptoms. This does not mean that the daily requirement is an upper limit.
Rather, it is an approximate minimum amount that the majority of the population needs in order not to become deficient. In fact, the need can vary greatly depending on lifestyle, age, and diet
Therefore, orthomolecular doctors recommend much higher amounts than the recommended daily requirement, if not only to compensate for a deficiency but also to boost a person's vitality and energy by taking vitamin B12. The most recommended dosage is 1000 mcg a day.
