Sublingual B12 away from food? WHY?

Commented on November 06, 2013

I just bought some methylated B12 (sublingual):

The instructions say take between meals.

Why, if it is bypassing the GI tract would "between meals" be relevant?

Thanks,

Mike

Ah, interesting. I'm MTHFR double-mutated for 677. Do you take folate? Right now I'm taking half a solgar folate and half a jarrow methyl-b12, but I'm thinking about giving the active b12 lozenges a try with a mix of methyl-b12, adenosyl-b12, and folate at 1/2 a tablet.

Maybe you end up swallowing a good portion of it and the empty stomach maximizes the absorption. I like mine before breakfast.

I'll be happy to report back. I'm MTHFR double-mutated for 1298. I had been taking Jarrow 5,000 mcg methyl b12. I read that this is the other type of methylated B12 so I figured I'd give it a try. I was very curious about the label saying between meals. Doesn't make sense to me.

When I hear methylated b12, I tend to think of methylcobalamin (I'm currently taking 500mcg/d.) I'd be curious to hear how you like the adenosyl b12 at 8600mcg.
