Methylcobalamin High Absorption B-12
Slow to dissolve
I liked that this supplement is methylcobalamin. However, the pills are large for B12 and hurt my mouth when putting under my tongue.
They do not dissolve very well either. I wind up chewing at the end.
I did wonder if exposing them to the air for a while might make them dissolve easier? I know that helped with Now Foods brand.
The 5 mcg pills are the same type and size as these are.

I would not purchase this B12 again because it tastes bad. I couldn't stand to let it dissolve under my tongue.

Great Highly Absorbable B-!2 Supplement
I follow the Eat Right 4 Your blood Type diet and i found this supplement to meet all my needs. I gave it a 5 star rating all the way around! I love the fact that it does contains xylitol and not other sweetener.

One Time Wonder
The first day i took this there was a subtle, but unmistable increase in (non jittery) energy. The second the effect was far less prounounced and since then i expirience nothing. They take a loooooooong time to absorb but you forget about them (after a few doses) and they taste good (i use stevia daily with tea however).

Best form of B-12
Because this form of B12 is what your body can readily use you actually get more for your money. And because it's Swansons, you get a lower price to start with. So it's a win/win! This works fast and effectively. They do take time to dissolve but I figure it feeds it into your system over a longer time. We have both the 2.5mg and the 5mg (for when we're really stressed!)

I take this in the mornings especially on the days I watch by grandchildren. It really seems to help with my energy levels. I like this product and will continue to purchase it in the future.

These are very good
Just want to say how good these are.
I was taking Jarrow Methyl B-12 Methylcobalamin - they took much to long to dissolve & tasted like cardboard.
These dissolve quickly & taste good. I don't find the taste overpowering or too sweet (this is from a person who doesn't like overly sweet foods).
Good job Swanson

Have your B levels checked before taking this vitamin. It is a quality vitamin.

I add this to my heavy metal detox regimen which includes, N-Acetyl L Cysteine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Lithium Orotate. But sometime it makes my tummy queazy. It is great for the brain.

This is way too sweet, too much stevia. I can not take these.

Taste is too strong!
I was excited to see this new, mid-level dose was available. However, the taste is much too strong. Luckily, it dissolves very quickly. The cherry taste is fine, but in combination with the extreme sweetness, it is overwhelming. Hoping it will be reformulated with a better taste, because I am very satisfied with how this product works.

tried others that melted too fast. These are higher potency and don't disappear so fast under the tongue. Like the price and potency and the fact that it is the readily absorbable form of B-12

This B-12 is the type I want and melts and is easy to chew up mostly absorbed in mouth. It tastes good.
I am not a vegan but don't always eat beef or liver or prunes or beans or lentils. I take it for insurance.

very good product at a great price
I am very pleased with the quality and price of this product. It seems to work as well if not better than the NOW brand that I've been using and is less expensive.

The taste of this product is awful -- too much stevia extract and it is bitter.

Methylcobalamin High Absorption B-12
I gave the (Methylcobalamin High Absorption B-12) 3 leaves, for overall rating, mostly because, large quantity bottles seem to be nonexistent...Bottles are small have few pills in them and waste resources, shipping small low tablet bottles such as, 250 pills or less...The Methylcobalamin High Absorption B-12 had only 60...Makes no sense...This cause more bottles in landfills, more shipping, costs, and is just stupid...People use the Internet for value, but also convince such as buying larger quantity...Not used the product long enough to know if the vitamins work, really need 20 weeks, to know, only used them for 3

excellent B12 product well priced and usable for daily consumption. B12 is very important for the nervous system and should be used by all baby boomers.
March 5, 2013
An effective B12...BUT too sweet, Too much stevia which create almost a shock & even some bitter taste.Please take out half of the stevia & you have a really great product

melted easily on the tongue
The new dosage is convenient for daily intake, only half of the original humongus 5000 mcg dosage. And it melted easily under the tongue for quick absorption, leaving behind a light cherry taste.

Soon, in liquid form too?
Thanks for making this enhanced, bio-available form of B12. I give it low marks because the liquid form is, for some people, easier to deal with..well this 'people' and my husand too. I look forward to seeing this goodness in a dropper botlle. You have liquid B12 but it's the traditional cyanocobalamin form, requiring the digestive system to work harder: it must convert it into the methylcobalamin form first, before body can use. I'd only recommend to a friend if they need to buy from you; otherwise I'll send them to your competitor, Vita Cost which does have the B-12 form I'm talking about.
