    Careful -- it's $40 per bottle when you buy THREE or more.

    I’m trying to get all the co-factors in place for Gregs b12 oil protocol but its kind of confusing sometimes trying to learn more about the ins and outs and flesh out what Greg tells me with experiences of others here using them.....because there seem to be 2 or 3 threads on the B12 oils and all of them are really long. Is there a definitive thread ?

    Anyway I read on one of the threads Gregg mentioned that when you are absorbing enough B2 your urine will be bright green. And that it can takes weeks if your extremely deficient. Have those of you doing this protocol found that to be true?

    The colour is closer to chartreuse. And yes, it took us about 6-8 weeks to see the colour change.

    I was thinking of trying the multi B12 oil but it is very expensive. I don't know who is replying to their customer service emails at the moment but they seem unprofessional and off-hand. Surely not the Greg everyone is talking so positively about? Whoever it is doesn't sign their emails by name,

    Anyway, I would like to know if anyone tried the B Group oils. It would save me from having to take so many pills. Has anyone here tried the B group oil?

    By the way, I have found some good liquid B12 that I use sublingually or add to water that seems to be good for me.

    I have only tried the adenosylcobalamin but I like it

    In answer to your question - we have been using the B12 oils for about 2 years. They're cheaper than any sublingual alternative once you take into account the superior absorption, the slow release, and the lack of damage to the teeth and gums.

    We also find the bottle not too expensive - about $40 for 60 doses (which lasted us 2 weeks initially, but now goes a full two months). And, for once, it's a chance to buy something made in Australia and not pay the usually outrageous transport costs from overseas.

    Every now and again, we seem to need a massive hit of sublingual adenosylB12 - like 5-10 in a day. That's happening very rarely now. I'd guess it is something about Freddd's CSF-penetrating dose, but that would be a guess.

    I personally use the B-group oil every now and again. I tried it at first because I'm the mum of the sick son, and that's what mums do. But I liked the extra energy and the reduced need to stuff my face at work.

    As for Greg's manner (if it is Greg) - he's an Australian scientist, and he communicates as every other scientist I have ever worked with. He's very interested in the science, and in how it helps people. Australians don't do customer service the same way as other countries (we never said 'have a nice day' until American movies came here), so i guess you might regard that as offputting if you weren't used to it.

    Hope that helps.

    I've just started on B2. I'm using Source Naturals Co-enzymated B-2 sublingual which is 18mg FMN. I'm taking this once or twice/day. My urine turned greenish-yellow within a few hours which was surprising since my NutrEval showed that my B2 was very low. Maybe the folks who take days to weeks for their urine to change are even more deficient in B-2 than I am. Or maybe they're taking the non-coenzymated form and the delay in urine color change is due to slower conversion of riboflavin to FMN/FAD

    I am intersted at how fast B12 oils are abosrbed. Some people, me included, get a quick reponse after 45 minutes but I am interested mainly in how long the B12 delivery is sustained for.

    I am trying to locate a particular research paper on transdermal B12 oil absorption. The one I am thinking of has some photos of a forearm showing how the B12 oil diffuses over a period of hours. Does anyone know the title or have a reference for it?

    @Busson, that will depend greatly on the trasdermal method/product that you use.

    @garyfritz I am using Greg's oil and he may have had something to do with the research paper I am trying to find. I looking to remind myself of the rate of difussion of oil they found in the study. I seem to recall it lasted longer than I expected.
