Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) for B12 Nutritional Deficiency "Started taking organic vegan liquid B12. I work out 5 days a week. One month after taking the B12 I began rapidly losing belly fat, which exercise was not doing! Highly recommend for reducing belly fat!"

Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) for B12 Nutritional Deficiency "I feel this helps when I have a flare up with my back in resulting to fatigue and none stop colds, severe joint pain, nerve pain, disc deterioration and other long list of issues. It takes about 24 to feel the effects. I have never had the side effects that I know of or have been lead on to know about through my physicians. I have my liver and kidneys blood check every 6 months and seems to help. So far this is helping and I can only pray it continues to help without the side effects."

Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) for Vitamin B12 Deficiency "I lacked the intrinsic factor to absorb Vitamin B12 from food since I was in my 30s. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 2x and now am age 55 I increasingly find that I am dependent on the b12 for energy, mood and weight maintenance. I can tell when my levels are low without a calendar as this usually occurs about 3-5 days before the end of the month when I am do for my shot."

Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) for Vitamin B12 Deficiency "I am 50 Initially I tried it to fight depression and low energy. Hoped it would help me trim off 10 lbs without the need for a diet. At first it helped, but after a few months I started gaining weight and developed muscle fatigue. I literally weakened by about 20% These injections began having a negative effect on me for everything I hoped they would help. I am not taking another one."

Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) "Vitam B12 really helps with depression and has helped me a lot. It's actually helped me more than depression medication (SSRIs). So take a daily multi vitamin with it and/or an energy drink everyday with it and you should feel better."

Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) for Vitamin B12 Deficiency "I was on Vitamin B12 injections years ago and felt good, the thing is my workmates mentioned how I was different. I also have a thyroid problem and have started my injections again. I just didn't know why or what had me feeling so bad. I was diagnosed with BiPolar, but I wonder even with just B12 deficiency or thyroid alone, they have such a impact. But together I am very affected. Once I feel better I will see if I am BiPolar. The B12 injections do help, maybe not instantly, maybe days or longer, but they help 100%."

Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) for Vitamin B12 Deficiency "I started injections about a two months ago. The first month was an injection once a week. Now I go once a month. The only thing I have noticed is a huge increase in back pain. I had to go to the emergency twice! No one told me I might have pain. But it makes sense, my nerves are waking up. Also I feel seriously bloated. Sometimes my jeans fit fine, sometimes they are tight. It's not vanity, I am fighting diabetes with diet and exercise, so the weight changes are disheartening. Other than the pain and bloat I don't really notice much difference."

Nascobal (cyanocobalamin) for Pernicious Anemia "I was given the option of B12 shots or Nascobal nasal spray to maintain my B12 levels after being diagnosed with pernicious anemia. I chose Nasobal and have been using it for 5 years now. I administer once every 7 to 10 days. Very easy and much better than shots. I do sometimes get a mild headache a couple of days after taking it. But, that's not enough to deter me from using it."

For B12 Nutritional Deficiency "45-year-old female, have felt tired for years, as if I always needed more sleep, no matter how much I was able to get. Afraid of needles and not looking forward to giving myself shots, I put off going back to the Dr. for months after my blood work revealed a severe B12 deficiency. Wish I had not, the shot was painless, a tiny needle and easy to do at home. Results are excellent for me, within 3-4 days I was clear-headed in a way I have not felt for years, I do not feel like I needed more sleep all the time! Not implying an overly energetic or a high-type feeling, I just felt normal. The hereditary dark circles under my eyes seem to be lighter too. For me, the results are a dramatic improvement and the medication is very easy to use."

This week I got palpitations out of the blue! Currently day 4 won’t be using them again as googling led me to this page and others like it. The patches are combined with folate. Slow release…. Can’t say for sure it’s them But the 2 noticing issues only come about since I start using them."

For Pernicious Anemia "1998: After several years of slowly increasing tiredness, decreased running performance, and finally numbness beginning in the balls of my feet, I switched doctors and was diagnosed with pernicious anemia. This young doctor listened and bothered to run a blood check, unlike the first doctor. Blood B12 levels were in the basement despite my huge vitamin B doses taken orally. (Stomach absorption pathway is broken in pernicious anemia.) Began monthly B12 (cyanocobalamin, 1cc) injections for life, an easy effective solution. A month later, I could take 2 flights of stairs at work on the run again. Measurements confirmed the nerve damage in my leg was reversed when rechecked 6 months later -- no more "peripheral neuropathy"."

For Vitamin B12 Deficiency "Holy shit!! I had b12 deficiency for around 10 years (suspected timeframe) without getting treatment and holy moly the treatment has honest to god changed my whole view of life. Compared to 2 months ago when I started treatment to now I don't even like the same things anymore and I am EXTREMELY more social and happier socially than I was before. Deficiency caused me to be in a constant "sleeping drowsy state and all I wanted to do was to sleep and watch movies and dream away. It was a strange lifestyle. I tried to become more active but every attempt just failed. If I tried to work without having slept at least 2 times in one day (yeah!) I would be completely nonfunctioning vegetable. Now? I go to work with 3 hours sleep and pound through the whole day no problem. 4 weeks of pills made such a dramatic difference i would urge anyone that suspects it to go and get tested."

For Vitamin B12 Deficiency "I have been eating a plant based, whole food diet (vegan) for the last year and taking this form of b12 every day. I take 1000 mcg twice daily and this has not helped at all. I have become more and more tired and just don't have energy to do the normal activities of daily living. I have been researching and found many people can not utilize this form of cobalamine and have taken methylcobalmine with great success. I took my first dose tonight and will report back. There was even a doctor who reported that in his practice he found the above information to be true with respect to oral supplementation. He did say that injections of cyanocobalamine worked but the oral form failed. Sublingual methylcobalamine did work with his patients."
