Methylcobalamin is the coenzyme form of Vitamin B-12, and is the biologically active type of B-12 found in the human body. According to the Mayo Clinic, “…people who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet might be prone to deficiency because plant foods don’t contain vitamin B-12. Older adults and people with digestive tract conditions that affect absorption of nutrients also are susceptible to vitamin B-12 deficiency. Left untreated, a vitamin B-12 deficiency can lead to anemia, fatigue, muscle weakness, intestinal problems, poor nerve repair and mood disturbances.” The absorption of B-12 requires a protein, secreted by cells in the stomach, called intrinsic factor. Elderly people secrete less intrinsic factor and therefore absorb less vitamin B-12. Methylcobalamin B-12 helps provide significant amounts of B-12 in its more active form.

Benefits

  • Methylcobalamin is more bioactive than cyanocobalamin, which must convert in the liver to the active coenzyme form Methylcobalamin before it can function in the body.
  • Methylcobalamin aids in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine, supporting healthy blood homocysteine levels.
  • Ideal source for vegan/vegetarians who are at greater risk for vitamin B-12 deficiency.
  • Methylcobalamin helps donate a methyl group to form SAMe (s-adenosylmethionine) which helps support healthy brain function and liver detoxification.
  • Methylcobalamin is essential for the production of normal, healthy myelin; protects the nervous system and supports its function.
  • Vitamin B-12 supports healthy red blood cell production, essential for oxygen transport throughout the body.
  • Vitamin B-12 deficiency generally increases with age because of decreased levels of intrinsic factor a protein normally produced by the stomach and which aids in B12 absorption.
