At the moment I am on a multivitamin regimen, and well it's come to that time again for me to get some more B12 pills( I love Amazon.com). Currently I have been taking the ones that go under your tongue and dissolve BUT I was wanting something with a little more :Umph: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sunny.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sunny:"><br>
Any suggestions? Has anyone taken the drops or drink/shots..(not the injection ones) I know there are like a thousand different kinds and brand so, I would like to know if there in anything 'special' out there. Doesnt hurt to ask <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br>
Thank you for any suggestions...xoxox

Get the methyl kind that has 1000 mcg per pill, whatever brand you can find. I took those when I was low in b12 and within a month my levels were back to normal.

If on the other hand your levels are normal, and you take them every day, then your B12 supplement doesn't need to be particularly powerful. 10+ micrograms cyanocobalamin should be fine, and even less if you consume B12-fortified foods every day as well.

they actually have chewing gum now with all of the b12 you need per day. I found it at <a href="http://www.veganstore.com" target="_blank">www.veganstore.com</a> its called B-Fresh. I've tried 2 different flavors and they've both been great. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Even Stride gum has one fortified with b12 and b6 called Spark. 25% RDA of each.<br>
Why are you on a vitamin regimine?<br>
Aren't b vitamins reliant on each other? I'm always worried if I take too much 12 it will interfere with other B vitamins. I know one will either maximize or work against another.

B Vitamins are reliant on each other, but it's still recommended you take big doses of B12 if you might be deficient in it. Diets that are deficient in B12 aren't necessarily lacking in the other B vitamins. B12 specifically is the one certain vegans might not be getting enough of.

I always felt that-so I got Deva B12-16666% B12.<br>
I chew an ave. of 3 Stride-75%<br>
At least 8oz. soymilk-50%<br>
and the ave. cereal I eat has 30%<br>
I also got Deva tiny tablets and they have 100%<br>
So...aren't I getting more than enough without the added pills?<br>
My concern is how would I know (what should I ask my Dr. to test) if too much B12 in relation to other B's are affecting their absorbtion?
