Re: Vitamin B-12 and PPIs Do you take a Supplement along with your meds?
If you are having trouble absorbing B12 in your stomach due to low acid, a B12 tablet is not going to help you because it will have the same problems when it hits your stomach.
You need to purchase sublingual B12. You put it under your tongue and it absorbs through the bloodstream and bypasses the stomach. Research shows that sublingual B12, 1000 mg, works as well as the shots. It comes in either liquid form or fast dissolving tablets.
You also need to look for the type of B12 that starts with the prefix "methyl" versus "cyclo". The "methyl" form is the one that absorbs the best, while the other form needs to be converted in the body and some people cannot convert.
