Cool Vitamin B12 for weight loss?

Hi wonderful community of fitday!
Does anyone have any experience with taking vitamin B12 supplements and noticing-not noticing weight loss?
The scientific studies don't support this, but in theory B12 helps metabolizing the food we eat. The issues are two-fold: 1. We don't absorb the one from supplement very well; 2. we may be excreting the excess we take.
But some people do report some weight loss, or at least it makes you feel more energetic so you move more (and lose more).

I'm trying to take daily supplement to see if they can help my weight loss, but I was really curious to see whether someone had tried them and had any tips?

Happy Monday everyone!
