Vitamin B12 Methylcobalam
Vitamin B12 is the methylcobalamin form; this is a more bioavailable form of B12, with added cofactors to maximize absorption.
Vitamin B12 is a member of the vitamin B complex. It also called cobalamin and is important to good health. There are two types of commercial vitamin B12: cyanocobalamin and methylcobalamin. New Roots Herbal uses only the methyl form, as it is the coenzyme form and the only type which can directly participate in homocysteine metabolism. In addition, converting homocysteine to methionine via methylcobalamin generates an increased supply of S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), the body’s most important methyl donor. Indeed, some of the benefits of methylcobalamin, such as protection from neurotoxicity, appear to derive from increased production of SAMe. It helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells, and is also needed to make DNA, the genetic material in all cells. Vitamin B12 is bound to protein in food; hydrochloric acid in the stomach releases vitamin B12 from protein during digestion. Once released, vitamin B12 combines with a substance called intrinsic factor (IF) before it is absorbed into the bloodstream.
