    I have recently started taking Solgar MB12. On the front label the product is described as "sublingual", but the detailed instructions on taking it are "place nugget under tongue for 30 seconds before swallowing it".

    I had always thought that stomach acid destroyed B12 and am inclined to let it completely dissolve under my gum.

    How are other people taking this product?

    Thanks,

    Wendy

    I know Freddd recommends placing it between lip and gum and leaving it there until it fully dissolves, which could take 30 min - 1 hour.

    5000 mcg takes longer for me to dissolve. I would wake up, put it between my lip and teeth and go back to sleep.

    Definitely needs to be absorbed sublingually (or via shots). Keep it against your cheek or gum for as long as possible.

    It probably can't be absorbed sublingually, and certainly not in the gum. MethylB12 is simply too large.

    However large amounts of B12 can't be absorbed in the GI tract at the same time. So it probably is a bit helpful to put it under the gum to slow down the speed at which it dissolves and trickles down into the GI tract.

    Many of us have had great success w/ Freddd Protocol, holding the B12 in gum for at least an hour. Some of us have switched to transdermal B12, there's a thread about it.
