Method of administration
Whilst it is best to hold the sublingual lozenge in the mouth for as long as is practical to maximise trans membrane absorption, if the lozenge is immediately chewed/swallowed, it will still be passively absorbed similarly to almost all oral B12 supplementation (of which even the smallest percentage that is absorbed will equate to a significant amount in comparison to the very small daily requirements established for vitamin B12).
RN Labs Sublingual Hydroxy-B12 is a pure and hypoallergenic form of vitamin B12.
Delivered in a stable, great-tasting, and highly-absorbable lozenge that won’t over-stimulate even the most sensitive patients, when taken at appropriate doses, whilst effectively supporting clinically focused vitamin B12 needs.
Sublingual Hydroxy-B12 is a pure and hypoallergenic product, developed to meet the needs of even the most sensitive patients. Formulated with no harsh or irritating excipients, ensures comfort, safety and efficacy for improved patient compliance and results.
In a prospective open-labelled study seeking to determine if oral sublingual B12 administration can provide an alternative to intramuscular injection, 18 patients with cobalamin deficiency of various causes were treated with 1,000mcg sublingual cobalamin preparation for 2-4 weeks.
After washout, a significant increase in serum cobalamin concentration (as much as four-fold compared with the pretreatment concentration) was seen in most patients, with a mean change of more than double pretreatment levels. No patient experienced side-effects.
The authors concluded that sublingual cobalamin is an effective, safe, and convenient treatment, which provides rapid restoration of serum cobalamin concentrations and should be considered as an alternative method of administration.
In a follow up case study, Chalmers, Bain & Costello concluded that “Oral Hydroxocobalamin therapy has an important place in the maintenance therapy of patients with cobalamin deficiency syndromes and with cobalamin cofactor synthesis disorders, it is preferred to intramuscular injections by patients, and deserves to receive wider publicity and use”.
Why use Sublingual Hydroxy B12?
Hydroxycobalamin is a naturally occurring form of vitamin B12, preferred in many countries due to its long retention of activity in the body and superior availability to cells over Cyanocobalamin.
Hydroxocobalamin is a scavenger of cyanide and nitric oxide, and can be converted to methylcobalamin in the body as needed.
Why Hydroxy over Methyl?
Hydroxycoblamin is relatively stable compared to Methylcobalalmin (which readily oxidises back to Hydroxycobalamin – after losing its methyl group in the mouth).
The potential for supplemental methyl B12 to dissociate to hydroxyl B12 in the mouth is commonly understood pharmacologically (rather than being extensively studied in any clinical trials). Leading Hydroxy B12 to perhaps be considered the more stable option.
Conversely, Hydroxyl B12 can readily be converted to methylcobalamin or adenosylcobalamin as needed in the body (which may be beneficial as both forms are required by the body).
Whenever there is either little effect, poor resolution of B12 deficiency, or even a worsening of symptoms after taking Methylcobalamin, Hydroxycobalamin can be a better tolerated form of vitamin B12 in many individuals.
Especially those with certain genetic polymorphisms (SNPs) that may benefit from receiving ample physiologically usable vitamin B12, without overriding the body’s natural methyl production feedback mechanisms.
