What You Should Know
Vitamist B12 Spray is an oral supplement for energy. The spray is designed to increase absorption up to 90-percent. Oral vitamins tend to have a lower absorption rate, which means the dieter needs to take more for the same effect of the Vitamist B12 Spray. The suggested dosage of Vitamist B12 Spray is 8 sprays per day taken as two sprays four times a day. The total dose of vitamin B12 is just 60 mcg. This is much lower than other liquid B12 supplements. There is no toxic level of vitamin B12 so dieters can feel safe taking 5,000 mcg or more per day. Dieters recovering from gastric bypass surgery take thousands of mcg of B12 per month via injection. There is simply not enough B12 in Vitamist B12 Spray to have any effect on energy.
List of Ingredients
Vitamin B12, Purified Water, Glycerin, Natural Fruit Juice Sweetener, Polysorbate 80, Natural Flavor and Potassium Sorbate.
Vitamist B12 Spray may absorb better than other pill forms of B12, but that does not mean the supplement includes enough B12. The dosage instructions are the best part of the supplement. B12 has a very short life in the body. After only a few hours, the dieter will pass extra B12 out of the body in urine. Taking the supplement multiple times a day is important to maintaining healthy energy levels. However, this supplement contains very little B12 per dose. The exact amount of B12 taken every few hours is 15 mcg. Even if an oral supplement is not as well absorbed by the body, it will likely supply more than 15 mcg of B12.
Vitamin B12 is important for energy production. Many energy shots contain large amounts of B vitamins to boost energy. Again, even if the oral “shots” are not readily absorbed, chances are the dieter is getting more than 15 mcg. According to Vitamist, only 50-percent of oral liquids are absorbed. If the oral liquid contains thousands of mcg of vitamin B12, more will be absorbed with these supplements than Vitamist. Vitamist offers oral mist vitamins for $25 per mister. This price is about 10 times the price of an oral B12 supplement. There is no reason to pay 10 times the price of other supplements.

Vitamist may be selling higher absorbency, but they are not selling the best product. Vitamin B12 is crucial for energy production and offers a healthy energy kick, but only in the right amounts. Vitamist falls short of the optimal amount.
