Why take Methylcobalamin B-12?
Jarrow Formulas only uses Methylcobalamin (Methyl) B-12, the main form found naturally in the diet. Methyl B-12 supports brain health and function, energy levels to help fight fatigue, and well-being.* Research suggests the elderly and vegans/vegetarians who eat little to no animal products, are more likely to have low B-12 levels and may benefit from supplementation.*
Methylcobalamin vs. Cyanocobalamin
Cyanocobalamin is a synthetic form of vitamin B-12 containing cyanide, whereas methylcobalamin has a methyl group instead and is obtained naturally from the diet in foods such as meat, eggs, and milk. Evidence suggests more cobalamin accumulates in the liver with ingestion of methylcobalamin vs. cyanocobalamin, which is excreted in the urine at a higher rate than methylcobalamin.*
B12 Form as Naturally Found in Food
There are two active forms of vitamin B-12 used by the body, methylcobalamin and adeonsylcobalamin. Do you need to take both forms? No. As methylcobalamin is the main form found naturally in food, the methyl group can be removed inside the cell to make adenosylcobalamin, so Methyl B-12 satisfies all of the body’s needs.
