I'm pretty disappointed with the new recipe. The taste is sub par and the texture is gritty and doesn't dissolve as well under the tongue. I much preferred the old recipe. I don't know what the efficacy is anymore - I won't know for a month or two, so I don't know if I can still recommend it.
Hydroxo B12 by Seeking Health provides 2,000 mcg of hydroxocobalamin in an easy-to-deliver lozenge form. Not only does hydroxocobalamin easily convert to methylcobalamin (a coenzyme form of B12 utilized within the body), but it is also well tolerated by individuals who have trouble taking "pre-methylated" B vitamins. It may also have the unique benefit of helping to support healthy cellular detoxification. This makes it a great option for individuals who are looking for a non-methylated alternative to the more common cyanocobalamin form of B12.*
Vitamin B12 is required for proper red blood cell formation, neurological function, and DNA synthesis. Vitamin B12 functions as a cofactor for methionine synthase and L-methylmalonyl-CoA mutase. Unlike cyanocobalamin, which consists of cobalamin (B12) attached to a cyanide molecule, hydroxocobalamin does not contain any potentially harmful compounds that require additional processing for safe removal from the body. Hydroxocobalamin readily converts to methylcobalamin, an active “coenzyme” form of B12, without introducing additional methyl groups for "overmethylators" or those who are sensitive to methylated B vitamins.*
For another non-methyl B12 option, consider our Adeno B12. If a methylated B12 is needed, our Active B12 5000 provides a combination of coenzyme forms: methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin.

Why did you change it!?
Since I can not use any Methylcobalmin I am glad I could find this B12.
It works good since my blood test can show the number is up.
