In order for vitamin B12 to be absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract‚ it first needs to be bound in the stomach to a protein called R-protein. In the intestines pancreatic proteases cause the R-protein to release vitamin B12 to bind with intrinsic factor‚ making it absorbable. Thorne's Bio-B12 contains methylcobalamin (an active form of vitamin B12) and folic acid in a base of papain. Papain is a potent protein-digesting enzyme from papaya that also results in the release of vitamin B12 from the R-protein‚ thus facilitating the absorption process. Zinc picolinate is included for support of the pancreas‚ which produces other digestive enzymes that facilitate the absorption process.

Methylcobalamin (an active form of vitamin B12) is essential for recycling homocysteine and the formation of methyl donors involved in cardiovascular function‚ sleep‚ blood cell formation‚ and nerve function. Most vitamin B12 supplements contain cyanocobalamin; however‚ the liver must first "detoxify" the cyanide molecule and attach a methyl group to form methylcobalamin from the cyanocobalamin. Methylcobalamin is already in the biologically active‚ tissue-ready form. Evidence indicates the body utilizes methylcobalamin more efficiently than it does cyanocobalamin. Research shows the quantity of cobalamin detected following a small oral dose of methylcobalamin is similar to the amount following administration of cyanocobalamin; but significantly more cobalamin accumulates in liver tissue following administration of methylcobalamin. Human urinary excretion of methylcobalamin is about one-third that of a similar dose of cyanocobalamin‚ indicating substantially greater tissue retention.

Great for the health- and price-conscious
May 21, 2014
This is the first time I've tried Bio-B12 from Thorne on a friend's recommendation. It meets my needs in terms of a vegetarian B12 option. I've now used it for 2 weeks, and while I haven't experienced an immediate boost to my energy am confident that I am now getting at least more of this important vitamin.

A Noticeable Difference
January 23, 2013
I decided to try Bio-B12 because the description said it was an alternative to sublinguals, and I had been trouble finding a sublingual that didn't have sugar, preservatives, or artificial ingredients. I take two of these idea and it really helps with my energy levels. I also like the added folic acid for my red blood cells, so it is a good comprehensive formula. I also like that it doesn't have a lot of fillers (like with all Thorne products), and the price is very reasonable!
pure formulation inexpensive

Bio B 12
December 7, 2012
This is only the second time I've used Bio-B12, so I am still waiting to see how effective it is. If it works well I will continue to buy it because it is so much easier to take than the recommended sublingual form. I've never been disappointed with Thorne Research before, so I am anticipating to have good results. The only reason I am giving Bio-B12 a three star rating is because I haven't been taking it long enough yet. As far as Pure Formulas - they get a 5 star from me. I don't know any other company that offers free shipping on any order, and items always arrive quickly. I've never had any problems with an order. Thank you Pure Formulas for your great service and Thorne Research for producing such amazing products!
Not sublingual It's Thorne :)
A little more pricey if you are needing to take four a day in order to rebound from a deficiency.

Doctor approved

I ordered this product because it is less expensive than the brand that my doctor prescribed. When I told him that I wanted to take a Thorne brand of b-12, he said that Thorne is a great brand!
