the different processing procedure will be written on the ingredient label?? what is the good procedure then?

I don't know much about b12, but I know Costco cares a lot about the quality of products they sell. I would trust costco/kirkland.

here's the label for the kirkland b12. There's 300 tablets, but 5000mcg per tablet, instead of 1000mcg:Image

Cyanocobalamin and Methylcobalamin are the 2 diff processing procedures. Cyanocobalamin based B12 is much, much cheaper to produce leading to higher profit margins and thus is heavily marketed and sold everywhere. It's also much less effective. Also has trace amounts of cyanide. Yrs ago had a very long discussion with the Nutritionist at my Dr's office about all types of supplements.

Edit: That's the good stuff and a really great price. I stand corrected.

I don't know the price of the kirkland bottle I posted about.

It might be another one that's priced at 10$.

I fail to see the part where it says there's Gelatin in it,you know it's sublingual ? I doubt Gelatin will dissolve in your mouth in short time ,I'm almost sure there's no gelatin in it,here is a link of the similar one on Costco.ca

I'm not a Costco heavy shopper but I don't remember seeing it on shelf at Costco,and I think they shouldn't put on shelf because 5000 mcg is very high dose and many people buy whatever on shelf without reading, a dose like that not recommended unless you have a real B-12 deficiency

I bought the Kirkland one (1200 mcg / 360 tablets) a few weeks ago from Costco,I don't remember the price I think it was around $15 .

Someone on the q&a on amazon listed the ingredients and the list includes gelatin. Amazon should provide better info for a product like this.

I'm pretty sure the 5000mcg is in the USA. I bought them there (along with some other vitamins/supplements) because at the time, my local Costco in Montreal didn't carry a cheap generic sublingual methylcobalamin. The pharmacist made sure to point out that no matter how strong the dose is, a person is never going to absorb more than a few mcg.

1. Cyanocobalamin (CBL) and methylcobalamin are not processing procedures, they are forms of VB12.
2. CBL is not less effective. CBL has 2 active forms, methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin. Both forms are essential and have distinct functions. Vitamin B12 deficiency should be treated with both active forms, thus making CBL the preferred treatment.
3. Traces of cyanide can be easily excreted by the human body. CBL is safe at recommended doses.

Virtually every resource i have read recommends methylcobalamin over cyanocobalamin. Some studies have found cyanocobalamin is only converted at a low rate to other forms, whereas methylcobalamin leads to a linear dose response increase in blood levels.
