Description

Methylcobalamin is the form of vitamin B12 active in the central nervous system, not cyanocobalamin which the liver may not convert. It is an active coenzyme of the vitamin B12 analogs that are essential for cell growth and replication.

Vitamin B12 is present in foods of animal origin, including dairy products and eggs. Thus, vegetarians are more susceptible to a dietary deficiency of this important nutrient.224

Methylcobalamin is the form of vitamin B12 active in the central nervous system. It is an active coenzyme of the vitamin B12 analogs that are essential for cell growth and replication. The liver may not convert cyanocobalamin, the common supplemental form of vitamin B12, into adequate amounts of methylcobalamin that the body may need for proper neuronal functioning.236-238 Methylcobalamin may exert its neuroprotective effects through enhanced methylation, acceleration of nerve cell growth, or its ability to promote already healthy homocysteine levels within normal range.234-237
