All FAQ'sVitamin B12 Back to product detail
QI've been using a well known branded spray of the methylcobalamin b12 with great success for the past 6/7 years and was wondering if you'd consider the methylcobalamin form of vitamin b12 instead of the cyanocobalamin. Also, apart from the cyanocobalamin form of B12 being more cost effective and the tablet kind supposedly easier to absorb, (I dispute this with my own personal experience), why have you chosen this type other than the methylcobalamin? Research suggests that compared to tablet forms, sprays have a faster onset of action as they do not need to wait for dissolution. Furthermore, sprays allow for the vitamin to enter into the systemic circulation, bypassing the intestinal vessels. This reduces the amount of time between administration and absorption, which is typically longer when taking other oral forms such as tablets. Any information would be much appreciated. Franka

A Hi, we chose Cyanocobalamin because it is reputed to have superior stability and there are some links (albeit limited) between Methylcobalamin and exacerbating skin breakouts. We are still researching B12 though, and working on new product versions. Spray forms are useful but require preservatives, as B12 is a water-soluble Vitamin, so we've been keen to avoid spray forms because we don't really want to use preservatives and have them follow the B12 into the bloodstream this way. We are hoping to have a new B12 product later in 2021 though, so watch this space....!
