 Vitamin B12 Methylcobalamin

Vitamin B12 Methylcobalamin

Methylcobalamin may exert its neuroprotective effects through enhanced methylation, acceleration of nerve cell growth, or its ability to promote healthy homocysteine levels. For methylcobalamin to be available to the brain, it should be allowed to dissolve under the tongue or be taken by injection.*

Food vitamin B12 is primarily obtained from animal sources, so vegetarians are particularly prone to deficiency. High dietary sources are: kidney, liver, brain, heart, milk, beef, egg yolk, clams, oysters, salmon & herring.*

Special conditions requiring definite supplementation are: pregnancy, breast feeding, intestinal malabsorption, older age, eating disorders, excessive alcohol use, infancy, high vitamin C intake, loss of intrinsic factor , intestinal parasites, removal of all or part of the stomach, low & high thyroid functioning, low parathyroid functioning, & vegetarianism.*

When using B12 therapeutically to help with certain conditions(such as known deficiency), it is best to use the Methylcobalamin form, either by injection, sublingually, or both.*
