Does B-12 Needs To Be Taken Sub-Ligually Or Injected To Actually Work?
I started taking 3000mcg B-12 sub-lingual lozenges (cyanocobalmin) and 800mcg Folate pills (folinic acid) together in the morning based on this article. I noticed a big surge in energy in the afternoon, but taking the B-12 lozenge under the tongue was a little annoying so after a few days I started just swallowing it along with the Folate. After that change I haven't gotten the energy boost anymore. Two questions: Does B-12 normally need to be taken under the tongue (or injected) to work? The two supplements are supposed to be taken together to prevent brain damage, so is it OK that the Folate is a pill and thus will take a bit longer to enter my blood stream? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
