I've been taking sublinguel Methyl B12 lozenges for years. Many are deficient and it's important. I've never done injections as the 1000mcg lozenges do me good. now foods methyl B12 is my fav.

I've followed many with neuropathy pain and issues and the B's are critical.

The kind I used to take, the more common variety which has to be processed by the body, it would build. But the methyl cobalamin form, which you can absorb immediately, shows effects within the hour, just giving energy. The worse I feel the faster I notice the effect.

I don't know if it actually improves my mood or since it makes me feel like I have energy, I feel like I have more options. I'll get foot cramps when it's cold, and B12 is the one thing which stops them with warming.

I'm experimenting since I still feel too tired, and when I first had my surgery (why I need the pills to absorb it) I also took iron, so am going to try that too.

I've found when its cold that B12 helps cope too, though I'm not sure why. It is one of the support elements for the nervous system.

When I first had the surgery which made it necessary, I got the shots, one a month. The dosage was high enough it was supposed to last. But I'd go into super energy a few hours after the shot. This would last for a few days, and gradually fade. The last week I'd feel very draggy. The sublinguel's work so much better since they don't overwhelm you with too much and fade off to not enough.

While I don't take B-12 shots, I do drink B-enriched drinks several times weekly, and I eat apples more frequently for the potassium. I'm noticing a general uplift in energy without energy crashes, and much less cramping in my legs and feet. I think there's something to idea that food itself can be a medicine. Although I'm not giving up my doctor! Peace to all.

That would make sense since B12 supports brain function which would raise the metabolism. When I'm sleepy tired I feel cold in cool weather. B12 might prevent cramps by supporting nerve function - maybe?

It's considered a 'vitamin' even when I had insurence so unless I got shots it wasn't paid for. I've used the sublingual type for some time, too, since shots give you a giant charge and it gradually winds down until the month runs out. The pills even things out a lot better.

I ran out a few months ago, and forgot to order them, and felt okay so I thought I'd see how it went. But I've been really really tired and decided to start again.

I've taken one. I feel super energized. I can't sit still. My body must have been really needing it. But I realize I don't feel DOWN. Lately, the down part of the bp2 has been winning. I keep ruminating about stuff, you know the stuff you can't control? And stuff I can but anything negative I just get depressed and numb.

I had tried a st john's wart pill, which doesn't have the over wallop of 'regular pills' on me. It helped but I still felt tired and couldn't concentrate right. That 'what if world' felt like it was floating just beyond. The st. john's wart pills don't seem to have the absorbtion problem of all the 'legit' psych stuff, which either hits me like a giant thud, or doesn't do much at all, if it absorbs or doesn't.

But I feel so GOOD right now. Not 'high' good, but feeling positive. I have energy, maybe to much and I'm a bit manic. Just a bit. I'm hoping it will keep me energetic. It's also magic in the effect on joint aches, better than taking nsaids.

Has anyone taken b12 on a regular basis and had positive results other than having more energy?

This is the type I take. The B-12 is in a form much easier for the body to absorb than most, as most versions of sublinguals use the form that the body converts to this one. I have found its much more effective.

Amazon.com: Methylcobalamin B12, Sublingual Vitamin B-12 5000mcg - 120 Tablets: Health & Personal Care
I'm prescribed Folic Acid, B-12, Potassium from time to time and Vitamin D when mine pluments.
My body will not absorb them due to a form of Anemia I aquired while in the military.
Now the VA is thinking something else is wrong....that my body is basically rejecting *most* nutrients through food. Don't ask me what in the f@ck is wrong, I get labs run on Feb 11th.
But to answer your original question, yes, taking B-12 will in fact make you feel upbeat.
If you read any energy drink you will see HUGE amounts of B-12 in them.


Also, make sure to have your Vitamin D checked {through blood sample}.
No energy, depression, moodiness, joint pain is generally caused by very low levels of Vit D and can be easily prescribed in IU {International Units}

Because of the way its directly absorbed, very quickly. Its actually absorbed directly into the blood supply through the very thin skin under the toung, which is why that's where you put them. If it takes longer, though, don't take a second but give it some time. When my legs got really cold and my feet got bad cramps I did that, but it was a special case.

The ones I mentioned seem to cost a lot more than the drugstore kind, but you get a lot of them and they last four months.
