Methylcobalamin (Methyl B-12) is better absorbed and retained than other forms of B-12 (such as cyanocobalamin.) Methyl B-12 protects nerve tissue and brain cells and promotes healthy sleep. Methyl B-12 is a cofactor of methionine synthase, which reduces toxic homocysteine to the essential amino acid methionine. Methylcobalamin also protects eye function against toxicity caused by excess glutamate. Each lozenge provides 5 milligrams of B-12.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I wanted to try a different brand of B12 and this one is a good brand to try.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't Get The Energy I was hoping to get energy from the pills, but I really didn't get a buzz. Takes good though. I think it may me feel a little funny too (in the head). Makes you sleep good I noticed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective! This brand is potent and I felt positive effects from the fist dose. Highly recommended

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to find this dose! I have MS, and B12 is very important for us. My doctor wanted me to take a higher dose, and I was doubling up, but it was bulky taking 2 sublingually. Now I can take one at an even higher dose! My only complaint is that it takes a long time to dissolve, about 20 minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Second-Best Methyl B12 This supplement costs must less from Swanson than in-store. However I find it inferior to Superior Source Methyl B12, which dissolves more quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New to Jarrow I had to switch from the Swanson brand to Jarrow when they started using strawberry flavoring (food allergies) and can say the transition was seamless. It's just as effective and taste like a smarty candy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super B12 Active form of B12 in a great tasting lozenge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My naturopathic Dr. had me add this product to my other regiimine. My husband has been taking it since he first went to her. It's easy to dissolve or chew and has a pleasant cherry taste.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from personal preference I take lots of B-12 and I bought this brand because of price; but I definitely prefer the B-12 lozenges that are small and melt quickly under your tongue; these are too big...must chew. Seems to be digesting them, however.
Date published: 2013-04-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jarrow methyl b 12 I like the fact that there isn't any artificial sweetners in here and they taste nice. These work well for me and I haven't been able to beat the price if I consider the cost of shipping. Swanson is a no hassle, safe place to buy and they stand behind their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jarrow Methyl B-12 Methylcobalamin I particularly like this brand. It's a small chewable cherry flavored tablet. Not at all unpleasant and sure beats the B12 shots I was having to take. At the senior care clinic they check regularly for B12 and vitamin D defficiencies. It is great that the medical profession recognizes these needs. Since I've been taking this brand of B12 (one tablet per day) my tests are coming out good. I chew one tablet mid-afternoon. I like the lift and energy I get from them. They are safe for vegans and diabetics,

Rated 3 out of 5 by from b12 5000 does not dissolve quickly. do not notice any difference
Date published: 2012-10-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from B12 Methyl I am going to be very honest. I have been taking these as directed for a month now. I really do not feel any different taking it, or not taking it. My wife can only take it ant night, because she feels it is too strong... I am going to assume that because I also take Natures Way Alive Ultra Potency, that I am not as deficient in B12 as the wife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff Just what I needed to kick off my day. At 73, I need a little jump start in the morning and this B12 does the trick. I have always used supplements and am feeling better than most 50 year old people that I know.
Date published: 2012-03-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Methyl B-12 I buy this regularly for my dad who just turned 82. He loves it and says it really gives him a lift. My family also takes B-12 in the Methyl form. It's really critical for us since we're vegetarians.
Date published: 2011-07-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Take half and half I got these seem to be too strong for me so I use half in the morning and the other half at night 3 times a week, they seem to work pretty good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST B12 Supplement I've Found! I've tried several brands of sublingual methylcobalamine, and this is the only one that I've found which eliminates my symptoms of B12 deficiency. Since cyanocobalamine must be converted to be useful, and I've read that many people aren't able to do so effectively, I choose this form.
