B12 Patch FAQ

How does Healthy Habits®’ B12 Energy Patch work?

Each patch contains 1000 mcg of the expensive, highly absorbed active form of Vitamin B-12 (methylcobalamin) and 400 mcg of Folic acid. This is absorbed from the patch through the skin directly into the bloodstream.

Why is Healthy Habits®’ B12 Patch the best?

Each patch contains 1000 mcg of the expensive, highly absorbed active form of Vitamin B-12 (methylcobalamin) and 400 mcg of Folic acid. This is important, because most B-12 supplements are of the cheaper, less absorbed, less active form, cyanocobalamin. Best of all, the nutrients can be quickly absorbed simply by applying the patch behind the ear.

Why not use oral vitamin B 12 supplementation?

Many multivitamins only contain 1-10 mcg of the cyanocobalamin form of B-12. It then needs to be converted to methylcobalamin before it can be used by the body. The absorbtion of B-12 is a serious problem with oral supplementation. For example, taking 500 mcg of vitamin B-12 can result in as little as 1.8 mcg that will be absorbed into the body. That is 99% waste! Healthy Habits®’ B-12 Patches are already in the active coenzyme form the body needs, and are immediately available to the body.  Using a patch also allows you to keep a steady and constant release of vitamin B12 over the day.

Why not use sublingual vitamin B-12 supplementation?

Sublingual supplements only contain 1-10 mcg of the cyanocobalamin form of B-12. It then needs to be converted to methylcobalamin before it can be used by the body. The absorbtion of B-12 is a serious problem with oral supplementation. For example, taking 500 mcg of vitamin B-12 can result in as little as 1.8 mcg that will be absorbed into the body. That is 99% waste! Healthy Habits®’ B-12 Patches are already in the active coenzyme form the body needs, and are immediately available to the body.  Using a patch also allows you to keep a steady and constant release of vitamin B12 over the day.
