Methylcobalamin (vitamin B12) is Your Body's Source of Energy
Vitamin B12 can be found found in meals with meat, dairy products and eggs. With this, vegans and vegetarians are much more likely to have a vitamin B12 deficiency.
Methylcobalamin is the form of vitamin B12 which is active in your central nervous system. Methylcobalamin is an active coenzyme of vitamin B12 analogs which are essential for cell growth and replication. The liver may not convert cyanocobalamin, the most common supplemental form of vitamin B12, into adequate amounts of methylcobalamin that the body may need for proper neuronal functioning. 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.
The Institute of Medicine recommends that individuals combat food-bound vitamin B12 malabsorption problems with vitamin B12-fortified foods or supplementing with vitamin B12 or a vitamin B complex. Vitamin B12, or cobalamin, works together with vitamin B6 and folate to regenerate (methylate) the amino acid methionine. Methionine, which helps to maintain already healthy homocysteine levels within normal range, is essential for heart health.
