Types of Vitamin B12 Supplements

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

Vitamin B12 is an important complex vitamin that is needed for an array of proper body functions.

Normally Vitamin B12 can reach sufficient levels in the body through diet. There are some cases where enough Vitamin B12 is not being received. In the case where there may be dietary restrictions that will prevent enough of the Vitamin B12 animal products to be consumed, or if there is medication that is being taken that may interfere with the absorption of Vitamin B12 supplements may be the answer.

Oral Supplements

Oral supplements are usually sold over the counter and do not require a prescription although there are prescription strength Vitamin B12 oral supplements available.

There are a couple of oral delivery methods for Vitamin B12 supplements. The most popular is the simple pill form because it is the easiest way to take the Vitamin B12 supplements, however this may be the least effective way for the Vitamin B12 to be absorbed.

There are more efficiently absorbed methods of taking an oral Vitamin B12 supplement. The sublingual method is very effective. The sublingual method is when the supplement is placed under the tongue. This oral form of the supplement can be in drops or melt away tablets. The drops are easier to use than the melt away tablets. Some people complain about the feeling of the melt away tablets held under the tongue, the drops sometimes give off a sensation of heat, that also leaves some users complaining. The sublingual option might be a tad bit uncomfortable for some folks but it is the best delivery option for the oral supplements.

B12  Shots

In severe cases of pernicious Anemia a constant supply of Vitamin B12 may be warranted, or even in cases where the deficiency is major a B12 shot may be prescribed.

Shots, no one likes to get shots, but in some cases it will be the best option for getting the Vitamin B12 supplementation. Usually the shots are given in a rotational schedule, two weeks on than a break for a few weeks than again for two weeks. Usually the shots are given every other day during the two weeks. This rotation will continue until blood work shows that the Vitamin B12 levels are within range of normal.

Types of Vitamin B12 supplements can be found in many delivery methods to fit any needs.

Vitamin B12 Shots

Vitamin B12 helps in catalyzing the myriad bodily processes. Vitamin B12 should be consumed in appropriate levels in order to meet the various requirements of the body. Many times vitamin B12 is found to be deficient due to inappropriate absorption within the gastrointestinal tract. There are many over-the-counter medications for external supplementation of vitamin B12. However, some of these do not contain enough of the vitamin to effectively reduce the symptoms of deficiency. For this reason vitamin B12 shots are administered. Generally, the shots are given every 1 to 2 days for a period of about 2 weeks in the initial stages.
