ELIGEN B12 Receives “Amazon’s Choice” Designation

ROSELAND, N.J., May 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Emisphere Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:EMIS) today announced that its non-prescription medical food product, Eligen B12, has earned the coveted “Amazon’s Choice” designation for being highly rated, fairly-priced, and available to ship immediately by Amazon.   

Eligen B12 is the only oral product clinically proven to normalize B12 levels without painful and inconvenient B12 injections.  Eligen B12 uses an advanced patented pharmaceutical carrier technology to optimize B12 absorption by chaperoning B12 directly into the bloodstream within 30 minutes, offering the following benefits:

  • PREVENTS serious B12 deficiency, which is directly associated with irreversible nerve damage, early dementia, neurological changes, depression and anemia.
  • OPTIMIZES B12 absorption for patients receiving B12 injections, or those taking inferior B12 nutritional supplements, especially individuals lacking intrinsic factor, or those who have had gastric surgeries.
  • MAINTAINS consistent long-term and predictable healthy B12 blood levels with a single daily dose since there is no variability caused by monthly or missed injections and is superior to over-the-counter B12 supplements with erratic absorption properties and no clinical substantiation. 
  • PROTECTS patients taking chronic-use medicationsthat are known to cause serious B12 deficiency, including metformin (Glucophage), proton-pump inhibitors (Prevacid, Prilosec, Aciphex) and H2 antagonists (Zantac, Nexium, Tagamet)

Eligen B12 is available as a tablet the size of a baby aspirin, and is available at, and eligenb12com.  The Company encourages patients (or caretakers of patients) who are currently taking intra-muscular B12 injections to speak to their health care provider about Eligen B12, and to view customer testimonials available at and
