The Problem with Vitamin B12.

Most multivitamin supplements on the market only contain 100-200 mcg of B12. This vitamin b12 must then be converted before it can be used by the body. The actual absorption of vitamin B12 is a serious problem with oral supplements. Swallowing 500 mcg of Vitamin B-12 can result in absorption of as little as 1.8 mcg, so most oral vitamin b12 supplements do not provide an adequate daily intake! Sublingual forms of vitamin B12 are available, but there is no proof (nor is there any reason to expect) that they offer any advantage to oral supplements (i.e. a sublingual preparation is eventually swallowed).

As we age or become overly reliant on acid suppressing agents like antacids, our ability to produce gastric acids in the stomach decreases, meaning that Vitamin B12 is less likely to be released from its food source. An autoimmune or other disease reduces the production or blocks the action of intrinsic factor, resulting in intestinal absorption. People with pernicious anemia have decreased production of intrinsic factor. Abdominal surgery reduces B12 absorption. Gastrectomy eliminates the site of intrinsic factor production. Blind loop syndrome results in competition for vitamin B12 by bacterial overgrowth in the lumen of the small intestine. Surgical resection of the ileum eliminates the site of vitamin B12 absorption. Pancreatic insufficiency such as fish tapeworm infection and severe Crohn's disease affect absorption. When the B12 vitamin enters your body in the stomach (through food or oral pills), acids in the stomach separate the B12 from its protein source. It then must combine with intrinsic factor cells in the stomach. This B12/intrinsic factor complex travels to your intestine, where it is absorbed in the terminal ileum. The absorbed complex is then transported via blood plasma and stored in the liver. The interruption of any of these steps effects B-12.
