Absorption of vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is absorbed naturally via intestine (from food). Vitamin B12 is absorbed around 2 mcg by active mechanism and in addition 1% by passive mechanism through the whole small intestine area. In case of supplements, it is the passive mechanism that plays the key role. The active absorption of vitamin B12 differs greatly from other water-soluble vitamins: first B12 binds with intrinsic factor, IF, glycoprotein in the stomach and then gets absorbed in the final part of the small intestine, ileum. From 100 μg of vitamin B12 actively 2 μg is absorbed and in addition by passive method about 1% is absorbed (0,98 μg), total absorption is around 3 μg.
Daily recommended dose (absorbed vitamin B12) according to age (National Institute for Health Development in Estonia):
6-11 months: 0,5 μg
12-23 months: 0,6 μg
2-5-year old: 0,8 μg
6-9-year old: 1,3 μg
10 year old and adults: 3 μg

Helps to keep vitamin B12 level up. My child sleeps much better.
Siret Piigli –
I used one bottle during couple of weeks´ time. The main thing I noticed was that she started to be more calm. I haven´t checked the results yet with blood test but I at least believe that vitamin B12 level is back to normal. No taste (there are no sweeteners etc) so very easy to give your child. The pink colour does not come off easily from clothes in case you drop any…
I am satisfied with all Nõgel´s products. I give vitamin B12 drops for my children and started to use myself as well. The reason I started to use was due to feeling dizzy and nauseous, it appeared from blood test that my vitamin B12 level was only 191. This is almost as normal (the lower end) but still low. I started my own vitamin B12 treatment and after 1 week dizziness went away and I did not feel sick anymore. Couple of months I felt like pregnant and now after 2 months I feel good. I used the drops for 2 weeks and now take when I remember. In addition no side effects for that product. I have also used other brands´ products and they caused nausea.
My child had low vitamin B12 level from birth. Even when I give him vitamin B12 and then discontinue using, it still goes low again. We haven´t checked the level after Nõgel´s drops but he likes the taste and is willing to take it with no concerns.
Our baby has got the drops for 1 year already and we got the level up quite fast. Now we continue using the drops and in addition also the Nõgel´s vitamin D.
Today we got the results – everything is much better than before 🙂
25.1.2021 – Ferritin 5.7 and vitamin B12 397, vitamin D 109
11.10.2021 – Ferritin 51.7 and vitamin B12 858, vitamin D 135 – we have also been outside quite a lot 🙂
My ferritin was today 33.1 and 25.1 it was 17, my B12 was 403 in January – as it looked normal, I did not start using B12 myself.
I gave my child according to doctor´s guidelines 5 drops a day, now she sleeps calmly and eats even better. I would have never guessed that one vitamin could make such a big difference in my child´s daily routine, so I will definitely order a new bottle soon.
Helps to increase vitamin B12 level, satisfied.
Very good product – such pure ingredients and it works!
Nõgel Laura –
1 year 3 months child – does not sleep well, hasn´t slept actually from birth. Record until now has been 2,5 hours at once, after the first sleep starts to wake up and wakes up about 3-5 times during the night, even after ending breastfeeding. As I did not know the vitamin B12 level, I started to use 2 drops (200 mcg) daily. In case of deficiency the amount is 500 mcg daily for 1 month. I told my husband that if it really is due to vitamin B12, then we could see the results after 1.5-2 months. Unbelievable but – it took her about 1.5-2 weeks actually, 2 drops a day, and she sleeps! Sometimes wakes up once during the night and her record has been 8 h of sleep! I even checked regularly if everything was okay as I am not used to her sleeping that well. I feel much better myself as well as this continuous waking up is not good for the child nor the parent. I already wait to get to the bed because now I know that I can actually sleep!
Hi! I wish to thank you for such a good and effective product! Our 3 months old baby had B12 15.2.22 203. We used 400 mcg daily like our doctor told us and 5.4 the result was 1275. The doctor said we can stop using now as the level is good. I plan to continue using just 1 drop a day. Thanks again for such a good product! And our family always enjoys using our own Estonian products 🙂
Helps to increase B12 level, child is calm during night.

Thanks to Nõgel we got our child’s vitamin B12 up quite fast.
Kati Riin –
After 2 weeks of using our baby´s level got up from 191 to 1090. Sleeps like a bear, before she slept only 30 min at a time. It feels that the taste was not bad as when I take the bottle, she already opens her mouth 🙂I am very satisfied!
One child has had always low vitamin B12 level from birth. This has caused bad appetite that also reduces her vitamin B12 even more. So we use Nõgel´s B12 as treatments. Child gets better and is much more calm.
And when she gets her treatment, we all have as well! 🙏😊
