Description

Details

The importance of a vitamin B12 supplement after gastric bypass and certain other forms of weight loss surgery cannot be overstated. The absorption of Vitamin B12 relies heavily on a healthy, intact gastrointestinal system. Contact time in the stomach and upper region of the small intestines is particularly important. As a result, many individuals are prone to vitamin B12 deficiency after their procedure. This sublingual supplement from Bariatric Advantage is formulated to provide good protection against B12 deficiency, and can be an excellent alternative to or addition to periodic injections.

Directions

Dissolve 1 tablet under tongue or as prescribed by a physician.

Better for me than shots
by Julie on 10/30/2008
This seems to work better for me instead of the monthly shots. I don't get as tired and seem to have more energy taking the B12 daily. The cherry taste is awesome. I only wish they dissolved faster than they do.

Quicker dissolving formula would be helpful.
by Reenie on 5/23/2009
I am almost 8 years post-op and have found this particular B-12 suppliment to be the best. It is portable, affordable, non-messy like the sprays, and it tastes just fine. The only objection is that it takes about 8-10 minutes (I have timed it) to dissolve.

Overall, a great product that I will continue to purchase.
Amazing product!!
by BuddingRose on 8/10/2009
This is the best sublingual B12 available!! I've tried the quicker-dissolving pills from Trader Joes, but they make me *cringe* (horrible taste) and turn my mouth pink.

I'm 6 years post-op, and will continue to use these as long as they're available!!
Slow Dissolve is Important Advantage
by Phillip G on 8/22/2009
Reenie from FL suggested a faster dissolving tablet would really be a plus. Here's the reason a "slow dissolve" is better: Once swallowed, the absorption of vitamin B12 is highly dependant on the stomach – requiring specialized proteins such as Intrinsic Factor for absorption. Sublingual preparations, which are absorbed in the mucosa of the mouth, have been shown to be effective in the prevention and treatment of B12 deficiency.



Many sublingual vitamin products dissolve rapidly in the mouth allowing most of the vitamin to be swallowed. This is not optimal in individuals with malabsorption where the goal is to assure absorption in the mucosa of the mouth. The Bariatric Advantage formula is designed to dissolve over several minutes, allowing for optimal absorption. For greatest comfort, it is suggested that the tablet be placed between cheek and gum rather than under the tongue.
Does the job for me!

I have never had any problems with my B12 levels since using this product. It bothered me somewhat at first putting a tablet under my tongue but I am so used to it now that it is not a problem. I like the flavor too.
The Best

B-12 is the wonder vitamin
by cate45 on 8/30/2012
I love B-12 sublingual is the greatest! As my age goes up, I need the B-12 to pick me up! And the flavor of the pill is yummy!
great product!
by rkp on 8/30/2012
I had bariatric surgery 2 and 1/2 years ago. My b-12 levels have always been great - this product was recommended by the clinic that performed my surgery and I've taken it since the beginning. I tried one other brand and it melted more quickly but I prefer this one especially after reading that by melting under your tongue more slowly, you absorb more. Great taste and great results!
This is it
by canesfan2002 on 7/13/2011
These are the best I have ever had. Small, tasty and easy to take. I put one in my mouth as I start my drive to work every morning. Best news, according to the lab results my doctor reviewed he was pleased with my blood levels for B-12.
Excellent B-12 Supplement Post-Bariatric Surgery
by Michelle on 8/30/2012
Had Roux-En-Y in November 2010 and lost more than 120 pounds in next 6 months (283 pounds to 163 pounds). B-12 levels were never an issue because this was waiting at home ready to take when I came home from the hospital. Would recommend to anyone concerned about maintaining excellent B-12 levels for health and energy.

I have used this since I had my surgery just great no problems, will take this the rest of my life.
Excellent
by lynne on 7/30/2012
I have recommended these to even those without bariatric surgery. Taste good. Easy to take as I run out the door to work. My blood levels have always been great since surgery using these. Took time off them during an illness.......paid the price. Back on. Just remember they're built to dissolve. They won't hold up in pill holders especially with high humidity. Nothing like finding all your meds in a big glob with these and the iron glued together. Learned the hard way. Thank you BC, these beat any over the counter.

B12 vitamins
by Brenda on 4/16/2013
These little vitamins sure pack a punch in taste and value. I have been taking them since my surgery Sept 2012, and my Dr actually asked me to back off from taking them every day because I am getting to much B12. I was really suprised by this because just a few months earlier I was B12 depleted. I now take 3x a week instead of everyday and Im now back on track. I HIGHLY recommend these.
Excellent Product

Take care of my B12 deficiency needs
these are a must have....
by KIANNA youtube bigcouz52 on 11/8/2013
okay, i had issues after my gastric sleeve with my b vitamin levels. i use to rely on my vitamins from my doctor... u know.. the one you get through your insurance. well, i finally said let me try these.. infact most of the bariatric vitamin line here. let me tell you... EVERYTHING changed when i decided to come out of my own pocket and purchase vitamins. bariatric choice literally saved my life and the quality of it. these vitamins are more then great! i promise you.. these are the best you can get. i purchase these b-12's every chance i get infact i keep 2 in the cabinet with fear they will stop selling them at some point! i use 2 instead of the 1 a day and i feel GREAT! get these!
B-12 Sublingual
by Kimberly on 9/21/2015
I have tried several other products and this by far is my favorite. The taste is so much better than the others along with the texture. Definitely worth it.
