Seeking Health Active B12 5000 Lozenges contains the methylcobalamin form of vitamin B12 in a high concentration of 5,000mcg (5 mg) per tablet. Methylcobalamin is one of two active coenzyme forms of vitamin B12 (cobalamin) and serves an important role in red blood cell formation, methylation reactions, brain and nervous system function, and immune system regulation. 60 tablets.
Seeking Health Active B12 5000 Lozenges are a great tasting, easily dissolving tablet that can also be swallowed whole. Active B12 Lozenges contain 5000mg of Methylcobalamin, the co-enzyme form of vitamin B12. Active B12 Lozenges may help those with sleep problems, vitamin V deficiency, anemia, and can provide antioxidant support.
Vitamin B12 is provided at significantly higher potency than the recommended daily allowance (RDA) to bypass usual mechanisms of absorption that rely on intrinsic factor. Consuming high amounts of vitamin B12 allow it to be absorbed more readily.
Extra potent vitamin B12: This vitamin is crucial to formation of healthy red blood cells, energy metabolism, nervous system support, cognitive function, and homocysteine regulation. Absorption of vitamin B12 is facilitated by intrinsic factor, a natural protein produced by the parietal cells of the stomach lining. It may also be absorbed by an alternate mechanism without reliance on intrinsic factor when high amounts of 1,000 mcg or more are taken. Thus, individuals without adequate intrinsic factor can still obtain adequate amounts of B12 if extra amounts are ingested.
Active, coenzyme form: Blood levels of vitamin B12 are not always a reflection of tissue levels and a deficiency of the coenzyme forms might exist in tissues or other body fluids even if an adequate amount of cobalamin is present in circulation. Methylcobalamin is a body-ready form with metabolic benefits that may not be provided by other forms of vitamin B12. Although cyanocobalamin is the most commonly used form of vitamin B12 in dietary supplements, it must be converted by enzymes into an active coenzyme form to be useful. Nutritional inadequacies, enzyme defects, and tissue abnormalities can reduce the body’s ability to synthesize the active forms of B12.
Methylcobalamin can be used whenever a need for supplemental vitamin B12 exists. It may be particularly useful for individuals with impaired methylation capacity, including those with elevated homocysteine or neurological impairments. Of all the forms of vitamin B12, methylcobalamin appears best at supporting the uniquemetabolic biochemistry of children with regressive autism who often have impaired methylation chemistry and neurological function.
Active B12 tablets contain mannitol and xylitol as natural sweetening agents and natural cherry flavor.
These sublingual tablets dissolve in the mouth within a few minutes or may also be swallowed whole if desired.

Dr. Ben Lynch, founder and Chief Medical Officer of Seeking Health, is a naturopathic physician. While majoring in Cell and Molecular biology at the University of Washington, Dr. Ben took a trip through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia that changed his outlook on traditional medicine, and his life.
During this trip, Dr. Ben hiked through the forests, mountains and coasts of Tasmania, worked a cattle ranch in the Outback of Australia, and volunteered with Mother Theresa in Calcutta. He lived in Fiji with a family having no electricity or plumbing, experienced the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, worked a fruit orchard in New Zealand, and returned to America with an impression of a different form of medicine than he had ever experienced with his mainstream medical education.
This profound experience led Dr. Ben to Bastyr University, and he studied the Mind-Body Connection, Environmental Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Epigenetics.
Dr. Ben saw the huge need for people to obtain foundational nutrients, and Seeking Health was born. Without foundational nutrients, biochemical dysfunction occurs and causes symptoms. Doctor after doctor and person after person do not understand the absolute requirement for our bodies to have the tools to maintain function.
“If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health, with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock solid and we provide the tools to do so.”
-Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health

Keep Out Of Reach Of Children
There may be consistency variations between batches. I will bring this up to our manufacturer and discuss how we can make sure to keep the consistency more stable.
The batches are both fresh and our turnover rate on them is very fast.
The first bottle you have is still good.
The Active B12 5000 will be comparable as far as ingredients. At this time we do not carry a liquid form of B12, although the Active B12 5000 is sublingual. The dosage is higher at 5,000 mcg.
