What we think:
I’ve got some good news – vitamin B-12 is one of those things you can stop worrying about it because, more than likely, you’re already getting enough of it.
Vitamin B-12 is naturally found in meat and eggs, so if you’re vegetarian or vegan, these could potentially be beneficial, otherwise, it’s simply not necessary. Here’s a quick rundown of some research I did: Vitamin B-12 is measured in micrograms, not milligrams. Given that the daily recommended amount is 2.4 mcg and that these gummies each contain 5,000 mcg, you’re losing the majority of that B-12 when you urinate (I believe the clinical term would be “tinkle”).
However, as far as researchers know, nothing bad is going to happen to you from taking an excess of B-12, and if you have a deficiency, then these gummies will certainly make your cup runneth over, so take that as you will.
Ultimately, the daytime gummies are great if you prefer to consume CBD in gummy form and you like to have the ability to take it in 10mg doses. However, the Vitamin B-12 in these gummies is most likely not going to give you a perceptible change in focus or energy.
While the daytime gummies weren’t anything to write home about, the nighttime gummies get a little gold star, and at 5mg of melatonin per gummy, these are right at the top of the daily recommended dosage range for adults.
Melatonin occurs naturally in our bodies to help regulate our sleep-wake cycles. I highly suggest that if you are on any medications to talk to your doctor before taking melatonin. WebMD offers a laundry list of medications that supplemental melatonin can interact with.
Because I tend to have mixed results with melatonin, I enlisted the help of a guinea pig – *ahem* – a friend in this review. She reported that over the course of a week taken before bedtime, she felt relaxed and says that she experienced a deeper sleep while taking these. She ended up liking them so much she plans on buying them again.
Ultimately, Highline Wellness deserves a round of applause for taking an innovative and thoughtful approach to their products, as well as including thorough third-party testing results and information about product ingredients. Both of these products score well because Highline Wellness is willing to disclose information about its products, and that is powerful in this burgeoning industry.
