Vitamin B12, i.e. cobalamin
We use well absorbed methylcobalamin form for B12. Methylcobalamin used in the products is produced in an environmentally friendly way and it is the purest vitamin B12 form under MecobalActive® trademark.
Vitamin B12 drops consist of only three ingredients: water, methylcobalamin (B12) and a drop of lemon juice to guarantee shelf life. Products´ pink colour comes from methylcobalamin´s pink colour. In addition, pink colour helps to avoid underdosing (in case a drop is missed).

How to use the product
Vitamin B12-drops can be dosed in two different ways: drop on the tongue and swallow for absorption through gut or drop under the tongue for absorption through mucosa (in case of malabsorption through gut).
Charity is one of the most important values for Nôgel. For every product purchased we donate 5 cents to Tartu University Hospital Children´s Foundation.
B12 drops for infants and children 1 drop consists of 100 μg of vitamin B12. It is easier for medical staff to make dose guidelines and also dosing mistakes (under- and overdosing) are smaller. B12 drops for the whole family 1 drop consists of 500 μg. In case of low B12 level normal treatment is 500 μg daily for infants and also adults. For babies you can use infant version 5 drops daily to reduce over- and underdosing mistakes.
Vitamin B12 is absorbed by around 2 μg by active and about 1% by passive method. When vitamin B12 amounts are high, passive method is the primary one, which also dominates in supplements.
