Spirulina and B12 how far should you space them apart?

I’ve recently read that the analogue/inactive B12 within Spirulina can inhibit the absorption of a B12 supplement if taken at the same time.
I’m wondering if anybody knows how far apart you should therefore space them? Would it be sufficient to do one in the morning and the other in the evening etc?
It’s currently telling me my question is too short but I do think this is everything I need to include in this section as the question is relatively simple (although the answer may not be!) weird.
Thanks in advance!
B12 by itself is hard for your body to absorb and some people are born without the enzyme that is even necessary to break down B12 orally. So the first thing is to probably get a B12 supplement that is sublingual, meaning absorbing it under the tongue and allowing the absorption that way guarantees it gets into your system. Look for bottles that say "sublingual", meaning that you allow it to absorb under your tongue and this breaks through the blood/brain barrier as I understand it. The spirulina is also an excellent nutrient and I have heard that it does block the absorption of B12, but the sublingual method should stop that from happening. That and probably taking one in he morning, preferably the B12 and then the Spirulina at night.
