After reading Dr. Mercola's article about vitamin B12 today, I'm thinking about supplementing and see how I feel. What supplement do you recommend? (I've seen drops, sublingual tablets, etc.) Feel free to spam me.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Personally I use the sublingual drops....<br><br>
I feel like I take enough pills!. Easily absorbed and easy to take.

If you want something to just try out, you can hopefully find a methylcobalamin at your local HFS (skip the cyanocobalamin forms, which will probably be most of the products on the shelf). A few people don't deal well with the methyl form, if it makes you feel worse in any way, I'd switch to a hydroxy form. Most people would be fine with either.<br><br>
Whatever you get, you want sublingual--spray, drops, something that dissolves in your mouth, not a pill to swallow.<br><br>
I've used Perque's hydroxycobalamin B12, it's called B12 Guard, naturamart.com sells them (their URL is vitalbee.com now), dissolves very easily, effective, tasty.<br><br>
I'm about to try some drops from holisticheal.com, I am going to get the mega b12 hydroxy drops, but they've also got methyl and adenosyl. These are more cost-effective than most anything else I've seen, but it's a lot more doses in a bottle, so it only makes sense if you know you will use it all.<br><br>
Liver is also a great source of B12, I've been quite surprised that swallowing chunks of frozen liver isn't nasty like I expected it to be. It's actually okay, and if you look up the nutrition info, seriously nutritious.

If you've got a deficiency in one B-vitamin, you're probably better off with a source that supplies several. If you look at the food sources of B12, most of them give you most of the B-vitamins.<br><br>
And you need B6 to process B12. Also E.
