Sublingual - Vitamin B12 requires intrinsic factor, a glycoprotein produced by the cells of the stomach, to absorb. Aging, digestive function and other health factors can affect production of intrinsic factor. Because of this tendency towards mal-absorption, doctors often use injections to provide patients with a guaranteed amount of B12. The best way to bypass the need for intrinsic factor is to take the supplement under the tongue (sublingually) which allows it to enter the blood stream through the mucous membranes. Less painful than an injection and just as effective.
Methylcobalamin - The earlier generation of supplemental vitamin B12 was known as cyanocobalamin. This was an inactive form and required conversion by the body into something that could be utilized. BioZkin's B12 is known as methylcobalamin; it is considered to be an active form of B12, immediately available for use by the body. Studies comparing cyanocobalamin to methylcobalamin in cancerous rats showed that only the methyl form prolonged their lifespan.
