When taking vitamin B12 as a sublingual tablet it can be directly absorbed into the bloodstream through the oral mucosa; hereby the problem of not being able to convert and absorb vitamin B12 in the gastrointestinal tract is being bypassed.
Important to know: The most common cause of a vitamin B12 deficiency is an insufficient absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. The body is unable to convert and absorb vitamin B12 properly. When supplement vitamin B12 with capsules or multivitamin pills, the body, as with dietary vitamin B12, will still be unable to absorb vitamin B12. Therefore, supplementing vitamin B12 this way is not effective. It may elevate the vitamin B12 blood levels, as these tests always measure both active and non-active forms vitamin B12. It is possible a part of vitamin B12 is taken up in the bloodstream through passive diffusion.
N.B.: Many vegetarians and vegans supplement their diet with spirulina (algae), tempeh (fermented soy) or nori (seaweed), in the belief that these plant foods contain vitamin B12. However, these products only contain a non-active analogue of B12. The human body is unable to activate this form of vitamin B12. 1 2 3

The NHG (the Dutch College of General Practitioners) states: “In patients presenting with symptoms and a vitamin B12 level below 200 ng/l, treatment with 1000microgram a day should be initiated. This can be taken orally, even if pernicious anaemia is present, because with this high dose the absence of intrinsic factor is sufficiently countered by passive diffusion”.."
Therefore, vitamin B12 deficiency can be treated with injections and/or tablets.
Please note: If you suffer from a severe disorder, contact your general practitioner or a health care professional.
Unfortunately, methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin injections are not together obtainable in the UK. However, they are available in Germany, Japan and for instance Italy.

It is difficult to say: this depends on one’s physical (and mental) condition. If there is a true vitamin B12-deficiency, you should be starting to notice a lot of positive changes after 6 to 12 weeks.
A lot of people combine injections with lozenges. Treatment of vitamin B12 with injections is most effective, but, due to the interval between injections, relapses often occur. Combining injections with lozenges may prevent this. Discuss this with your treating physician.
It is safe to combine vitamin B12 with multivitamins. There are no negative complications known of combining vitamin B12 with other vitamins.
Emdex is filler that is used to bind the vitamin B12 powder in a lozenge. It is an organic water-soluble plant-based starch product, without any further (synthetic) additives and has especially good and safe binding properties. (It is a relatively expensive filler.) Because it’s proven safe and harmless, it is typically used as filler in children’s medication. Another positive fact about Emdex is that it’s not tested on animals.
Our recommended dosage of vitamin B12 may be too little or too much for you. In that case, adjust your dosage at your discretion. If you do not experience sufficient positive effects after 6 to 8 weeks, please contact us. It is important to know that a high intake of vitamin B12 has no harmful side effects and is not addictive. Any vitamin B12 consumed in excess will be excreted in the urine.
Children use less vitamin B12. For children below six years old, 1 lozenge of 1000 mcg methylcobalamin a day combined with 1x 1000 mcg adenosylcobalamin with folic acid is often enough. For the smallest ones: we advise to give them one kind of vitamin B12 and switch between both kinds every other day.

During the first 6 to 8 weeks of taking vitamin B12 supplements, it is important to drink an adequate amount of water daily. The body will start to detoxify and by drinking water, your body can appropriately get rid of the toxics.
It is recommended for
1 SanaCore Methyl 10,000 lozenge (methylcobalamin B12 10,000 mcg) combined with
1 SanaCore Adenosyl 10,000 lozenge (adenosylcobalamin B12 10,000 mcg)
1 SanaCore Folic acid 800 lozenge (folic acid 800 mcg)
Let the lozenges melt underneath your tongue. Preferably take before or after breakfast or lunch. For optimal absorption of vitamin B12, do not eat or drink for 15 minutes after intake.
This Power B12 dosage contains 10,000 mcg B12 Methylcobalamin, 10,000 mcg B12 Adenosylcobalamin (Dibencozide) and 800 mcg Folic acid per day in total. We advise you to continue with this dosage for a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 6 months.
After this period, it is recommended to switch to the Standard Package.
Or you could choose to temporarily stop vitamin B12 supplementation and see whether your symptoms are permanently gone. If your symptoms do not return after a period of 3 months, you will most likely not require any more vitamin B12 supplementation.
Should you, after ceasing vitamin B12 supplementation, experience a return of impaired physical and/or mental health, we advise you to contact your treating physician.
If there is no other cause for your symptoms, we advise you to restart the Standard dosage of vitamin B12.
Do this at your own discretion and, of course, preferably in consultation with your treating physician or health therapist.
Gradual build-up to Power Package:
Note: If you have noticed in the past that you are sensitive to medication of any kind, it is advisable to start your vitamin B12 dosage with a gradual build-up according to the schedule below:
Once a day
melt half a SanaCore Methyl 10,000 lozenge (Methylcobalamin B12 10,000 mcg) in your mouth.
Once a day
melt half a SanaCore Methyl 10,000 lozenge (Methylcobalamin B12 10,000 mcg)
and half a SanaCore Adenosyl 10,000 lozenge (Adenosylcobalamin 10,000 mcg) in your mouth.
Use above mentioned dosage advice:
Once a day
Melt 1 SanaCore Methyl 10,000 lozenge (Methylcobalamin B12 10,000 mcg) combined with
1 SanaCore Adenosyl 10,000 lozenge (Adenosylcobalamin (dibencozide) 10,000mcg) and
1 SanaCore Folic acid 800 lozenge (Folic acid 800mcg) in your mouth (underneath your tongue) before or after eating.
During the first 6 to 8 weeks of taking vitamin B12 supplements, it is important to drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day. The body will start to detoxify and by drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water a day, your body can appropriately get rid of the toxics.
The recipe created by B12-doctor Hans Reijnen prescribes 3 tablets of folic acid a day. The Power Package contains a sufficient number of folic acid lozenges to follow this recipe. If you wish to follow the recipe, we strongly advise you to do so after consulting your health therapist/
A vitamin B12 deficiency causes an accumulation of homocysteine and methylmalonic acid. When taking vitamin B12, these substances will have to be disposed. Drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day allows for this to happen properly. If this does not happen, there is a chance of suffering (or continuing to suffer) from, for instance, headaches and acne.
Vitamin B12 methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin restart certain processes in the body. This releases certain waste products. These need to be disposed properly; otherwise you could suffer from an exacerbation of existing physical or psychological complaints. This is why we strongly recommend drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day in order to properly dispose the toxic substances.
This does not mean that sometimes it can get to be a bit ‘overwhelming’ for someone, both physically and mentally. It is okay to halve your vitamin B12 dosage for a while. After all, this is not a race. If that does not help enough, halve your dosage again (break or cut lozenges in half).
If the situation improves over time, you can slowly increase the dosage again, at your own discretion. Most likely, the symptoms you described are part of the starting phase. After this phase you will really start to notice the benefits of vitamin B12.
The following medications impair vitamin B12 absorption in various ways:Reference: Could it be B12? – Sally M. Pacholok & Jeffrey J. Stuart, blz 53-54
Only because these medications may impair vitamin B12 absorption does not mean you should stop taking these drugs. It is, however, advisable to start supplementing vitamin B12.
If you were prescribed any of the following medications, you could be suffering from vitamin B12 deficiency diagnosed as a different illness. If a vitamin B12 deficiency is not treated, this can create an irreversible or even life-threatening situation.Reference: Could it be B12? – Sally M. Pacholok & Jeffrey J. Stuart, blz 54-55
If you take any of these drugs, it is strongly recommended ruling out a vitamin B12 deficiency.
The NHG states: There is no test available that can definitively confirm or rule out vitamin B12 deficiency as the cause of complaints. The NHG recommends are the Methylmalonic acid test and to a lesser extent the Homocysteine test.
for more certainty, that is why we tell you: judge your symptoms. If your blood levels are normal, but you still recognise a number of symptoms then it is advisable to insist your physician to start a vitamin B12 test treatment.
The active form of folic acid is folate (5-MTHF).
All our packages contain folic acid or folate.
