When is the best time of day to take V B12 sublingually?

When is the best time of day to take V B12 sublingually? I started taking V B12 sublingually because my B12 was very low (220). I seemed to have energy again. But then after about a month, it seems like I'm back to feeling how I was feeling. Yet, I am still taking the Vitamin B12 (and Vitamin D - also deficient - 17). I'm wondering if perhaps my problem is that I have not been taking the Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D at the same time every day. Lately, I have taken them at night. Perhaps that is the problem? I will try to remember to take in morning and see if that brings me back to how I was feeling (i.e., more energized). Meanwhile, I thought I would ask this question.

Dosage problem, not time of day problem
by: Kerri Knox, The Immune System Queen

It's more likely to be a dosage problem and not a time of day problem. Please see my page on Vitamin B12 Deficiency Treatment and/or you have not solved your problem of vitamin D deficiency because of incorrect dosage, which is extremely common. Either deficiency can leave you feeling fatigued.

Please also see my page on Vitamin D Therapy for instructions on the correct dosage, etc. for Vitamin D.

Take Vitamin D in the morning
by: Jenifer

Vitamin D is best taken in the morning, as it surpresses melatonin which you need at night which helps tell your body it's time to go to sleep soon. Vitamin B12 should be fine anytime, I take mine in the morning also (I have a sustained release one which has a slow-release for up to 8 hours).

Per my recent blood results, I am Vitamin D deficient, and have low energy and am taking Vitamin B12, as suggested by my doctor.
