Vitamins are necessary for your body to function. The importance of vitamins for healthy living was known as early as the 18th century, sailors were routinely given citrus fruits on long voyages to avoid scurvy. Doctors know that vitamins are important; however, the route of their absorption is also as important if not more important than the vitamins themselves.

The problem with any oral vitamin B12 is that it must be swallowed. Now, whether you chew, drink or swallow your vitamin the biggest issue is that the vitamin must survive the stomach acids and then the pancreatic fluids introduced in the small intestine, get absorbed by the intestine, and finally survive the liver-bypass metabolism that all food must go through when swallowed. After which, only a fraction of that vitamin survives and enters your blood stream. If all of that was not bad enough, B12 must be bound to a protein called Intrinsic Factor (IF) to do any of that, which as we get older the body makes less and less of it. With all that came the popularity of expensive B12 injections.
Swallow, drink, or chew vitamins are all you see on pharmacy shelves.

Vitamin B12 may assist with prevention of dementia in elderly. A study in the American Academy of Neurology monitored 107 patients over 61 years of age for 5 years showing greater rate of atrophy on MRI studies in subjects that were B12 deficient vs. controls. Vitamin B12 appears to be crucial for a well-functioning brain and nervous system. The study concluded that “Low vitamin B12 status should be further investigated as a modifiable cause of brain atrophy and of likely subsequent cognitive impairment in the elderly”.
