Fab for tingling and numbness,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jarrow Methylcobalamin B12, 5000mcg, 60 Vegetarian Lozenges (5000mcg, 60 Vegetarian Lozenges) (Personal Care)
I have been using Jarrow's B12 for around 2 years. It has helped enormously with unexplained tinging and numbness I was having in my fingers and tows, and also a burning sensation I was having in my feet. These neuropathies were investigated to no avail (MRI scans clear etc) until I discovered that I may have a B12 deficiency that was not showing up on blood tests. Although my serum B12 levels were within the normal range, I began Jarrow's B12 and within 3 weeks all my neuropathy had all but disappeared after months of worry about what on earth was wrong. I continue to use this B12 once every 2 days to keep the problem away and have never looked back. HIGHLY recommended.

I also have been using Jarrow 5000mcg/5mg.
There have been massive benefits for this me, but, imo, nothing will be evident till you've been using it for some time. My benefits became obvious when using the 2nd bottle!
I've now been looking at swansons as its only 8 quidish.

I switched to the Swansons brand a couple of months ago, but have found that some of my symptoms are beginning to return - tingling hands, burning mouth and feet, loss of appetite, poor sleep, etc.
I'm going back to Jarrows to see if things improve again. I've read on a B12 forum (on the HealthUnlocked website) that some people find Jarrows work better than Swansons for them. I've found Swansons quite crumbly and they dissolve fairly quickly; maybe that's the problem.

I understand that methyl B12 is known to work better in the presence of Folinic acid. I've read that it is essential for optimum results. Worth a google anyway ;-)
