Q: What did Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher, International Celebrity Madonna, and Regular Person Me, have in common?
A: Rumour has it, we all tried Intramuscular Injections of the B12 Vitamin. Marge and Madge got B12 shots to have the energy and stamina to maintain their powerhouse, overpacked, ambition-driven, UK-running schedules. I got them just to try not to yawn my way through the day and have enough energy for regular people things. B12 injections are an increasingly common practice where the shot recipient reports increased energy and stamina, beyond what standard multi-vitamin supplements can offer.
WHY YOU NEED B12
B12 makes DNA and red blood cells. Without enough B12, your body runs out of steam and your mind can feel groggy. B12 is also necessary to maintain your nervous system.
Many people, especially women, tend to have depleted B12 levels. The result can be a host of health and beauty problems. Some health problems include a weak immune system, feeling tired, and weight gain caused by a sluggish metabolism. Some of the beauty problems caused by reduced B12 reserves include excess weight gain, unhealthy, brittle and lifeless hair (and in extreme cases hair loss), pale dull skin, and weak, brittle fingernails. Many hair and nail growth vitamins contain some level of B12.
Low B12 levels can also just make one feel “BLAH.” Some people impacted by low B12 just feel they are not performing as well as usual, like a perpetual “off day,” even impairing their sensory-motor control resulting in more clumsy mistakes.
DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH B12?
The body does not make B12; we get it from food or supplements. Some health issues deplete B12 reserves. Vegan and vegetarian diets often lack adequate B12 nutrients and require some supplementation.
Dangerously low levels of B12 often merit a regular schedule of B12 injections followed by dietary changes and supplementation. A good supplement plan can often manage depleted but not medically dangerous B12 levels.
CHOOSING A VITAMIN B-12 SUPPLEMENT
You may already take a B12 supplement or a multi-vitamin and still not feel any benefits or see tell-tale signs of B12 absorption such as stronger fingernails. It is sometimes difficult to know if the vitamin is even working. The problem with many vitamin supplements in pill, tablet or capsule form, is they don’t contain enough B12 to make it through your digestive system, especially if there is an underlying medical condition (or medications) that hinder absorption.
B12 injections work not just because it is a super-size dosage, but because it goes directly into the bloodstream, skipping the digestive tract entirely.
INMED TECHNOLOGIES MISOL VITAMIN B-12 SPRAY: GET YOUR B-12 WITHOUT DIGESTING IT
Misol by InMed Technologies is an innovative oral spray, a very fine micro-mist concentration of B12 with particles small enough to largely surpass the digestive system and goes directly into the bloodstream. This delivery system makes for fasting acting, robust B12 in your system. If you suffer from digestive issues that impair nutrient absorption, this is an ideal supplement delivery method.
There is no yeast, wheat, animal ingredients or artificial colors or flavors. I was glad to see this since many who require a supplement due to digestive issues also have allergies to some common supplement fillers like yeast and wheat. It also meets the needs of vegans and vegetarians.
In addition to the B12 (methylcobalamin), the ingredients are Resveratrol (the antioxidant in red wine), and Potassium Sorbate which is a water soluble preservative, Stevia is a natural sweetener, and Peppermint Oil is used for natural flavoring.
MY EXPERIENCE: USE & RESULTS
For several months I have taken an expensive daily B12 supplement tablet. Some rather expensive B12 supplements work for me, but many affordable ones don’t, so I was excited to give this Misol spray a try compared to my expensive B12 Vitamins.
I shook the bottle then sprayed it into my mouth twice, one time per day. The spray is a fine micro-mist that tastes like Peppermint, it is very similar to a mint breath spray type of flavor, and is cool and refreshing. There is not a bad aftertaste like some liquid vitamins or powdered mixes. It looks like a red cough syrup, but it is not a sticky consistency when sprayed into the mouth, it just absorbs and disappears quickly, it does not need to be swallowed. It is flavored with Stevia.
Then I waited…
After the first use, I could feel my body get a “jumpstart” within about 15 few minutes of taking the spray, but not in a jittery overly-caffeinated way. It was similar to how I feel when that first few sips of coffee hit my system in the morning. And I felt more mental clarity and focus. I tried just one spray for a few times, but the two sprays per dose seems about right for me.
I was a bit surprised at this result; I didn’t expect Misol to work as well as my expensive vitamins, or even better. Looking at the InMed Technologies chart, it indicates various methods of B12 delivery and their absorption rates. An Intraoral Spray, like Misol, is 95% absorption. This is HIGHER than the B12 intramuscular injections (90% absorption) that Margaret Thatcher Madonna and I have gotten. This level of absorption is a nice find in a portable, easy-to-use spray and it sure is preferable to getting an injection.
The Misol bottle has about 200 sprays in it so that it will last about 3.3 months, which makes Misol far more cost effective than even the cheapest drugstore store generic Vitamin B12 I have tried, and it is very more effective than many supplements I have tried, being on par with my expensive B12 Vitamins.
CONCLUSION: Misol Vitamin B12 Oral Spray by InMed Technologies is an innovative, effective B12 spray with high absorption capability, quick results, and no objectionable filler ingredients. It is cost-effective, and the results are on par or exceed the results I found with expensive B12 Vitamin supplements. My nails have started to get stronger within a few weeks, which is a good sign to me that a B12 supplement is working for me. And I have energy and mental focus when I use it. I am very pleased to have found an effective B12 that improves my health, energy and has great beauty benefits!
