    In the light of so many people here having thyroid issues (I include me) this is some useful information. Anyway, sublingual absorption bypasses this defect. I have low levels of B12 of course, which is no wonder having severe adrenal fatigue and unknown thyroid status (was hypo two years ago, I assume I am much worse now looking at sleep quality).

    I will add this which is highly interesting for the methylation folks:

    This adds more evidence to these people who have improved their sleep with B12.

    I specialised in studying the (in)applicability of studies on non-human animals as models for humans.

    The agreement between human results and non-human results is, on average, no better than that from tossing a coin.

    Yeah but not this time :D I agree though, what´s good of studying things in animals unless we are investigating how to treat animals?
