Then, what are the benefits of sublingual vitamin b12?
Vitamin B12 is also known as cyanocobalamin. Vitamin B12 is important for growth, cell reproduction, blood formation, and protein and tissue synthesis. It is used to treat vitamin B12 deficiency in people with pernicious anemia and other conditions.
Also Know, what is the most absorbable form of b12? Cyanocobalamin is a synthetic form of vitamin B12 that can be converted to the natural forms methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin. The body may absorb cyanocobalamin better, while methylcobalamin has a higher retention rate.

However, it has recently been shown  that the sublingual route is equally effective. In this prospective study of 30 subjects with vitamin B12 deficiency, we found that sublingual and oral administration of 500 µg of cobalamin was equally effective in correcting cobalamin concentrations.
When should I take sublingual b12?
It is best if this medicine (cyanocobalamin sublingual tablets) is taken with a meal. Place under tongue and let dissolve all the way. Do not chew, suck or swallow tablet.
