Abstract

The objective of this study is to evaluate vaping products that contain vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin). The breathable vitamin supplements claim to be more effective than oral and injectable methods. Vitamin B12 is known to be chemically unstable when exposed to certain variables such as heat, light, oxygen, etc. in biochemistry-related studies. The recent popularity of using vaping devices as delivery methods for flavorings and other substances (including vitamins) prompts the need to study the chemical composition of e-juices after vaping conditions to evaluate their safety.

Comments/Notes
