What is BioActive B12?
BioActive B12 are round, pale red lozenges with a pleasant taste of peppermint. Each tablet contains 600 micrograms of methylcobalamin which is vitamin B12 in its active form. The tablets can both be sucked and chewed. When the tablets are sucked, they will predominantly be absorbed via the mucous membrane in the mouth. The dosage is 1 -2 tablets a day. The dosage is high in relation to the Recommended Daily Allowance but is not associated with any risk of overdose.
Why active B12?
Vitamin B12 in the form of cyanocobalamin and hydroxocobalamin are both converted in the body to one of the active forms before they can be utilized. This activation is normally weakened with age and can also be compromised for other reasons. Since methylcobalamin contains a methyl group, needed to perform its functions, it is more effective than non-active forms.
It is not unusual for doctors to give B12 as injection into a muscle. In this way you avoid dependence on intrinsic factor or impaired absorption in the intestine for other reasons. However, research has shown that a high dosage of B12 in the form of lozenges may also be absorbed effectively through the oral mucosa thereby bypassing normal gastrointestinal uptake. Also it does not appear to reduce the absorption, if the tablets are chewed.
