Methylcobalamin Vs Cyanocobalamin, The Hype, Fiction, And The Truth
Clearing up the hype surrounding different forms of B12 Vitamins being marketed today. Methylcobalamin B12 in sublingual form may be winning the battle, but for different reasons.
Six well known reasons to take vitamin B12.
1. According to the National Institutes of Health vitamin B12 is key to reversing age-related issues.
2. Scientific studies confirm B12 as an energy boosting supplement: shown to improve alertness and contribute the body's temperature management.
3. Vitamin B12 is prescribed as a treatment for sufferers of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
4. B12 promotes heart health with cardiovascular support and red blood cell production.
5. B12 has been shown to inhibit cataract formation in the eye.
6. Published studies show that the sublingual form of B12 is just as effective as the injectable form.
Why Methylcobalamin over Cyanoobalamin?
Some falsely argue that, because cyanocobalamin contains trace amounts of cyanide, it's inherently harmful or poisonous.The fact is that the concentrations of cyanide within cyanocobalamin based B12 are so low, at a trace level, that they aren't enough to cause any real damage to those who choose to take them. Still, the claim is often made, for the dramatic marketing effect or other reasons.
However, even though cyanocobalamin isn't harmful, the trace amounts of cyanide still need to be filtered out by the liver before the B12 can enter into the bloodstream. Additionally, cyanocobalamin B12 is strictly lab synthesized and not naturally occurring: a fact that has convinced many people to look for alternatives.
Methylcobalamin B12, on the other hand, is all-natural, contains no cyanide, and it's immediately bioavailable. This means that the B12 is transported directly to the blood stream: no filtering required by the liver.
The sub-lingual form of b12 dissolves under the tongue in seconds, entering the bloodstream almost immediately.
According to contributor Allen Bethea of Livestrong.com, research published in the Oxford Journal of Medicine found that administering sublingual forms of vitamin B12 was just as effective as administering it through injections. Injections direct the B12 directly into the bloodstream, so this was traditionally a very popular form of administration that is utilized for those who are vitamin B12 deficient. Those who are deficient in B12 often have to rely on injections to be able to receive the necessary amount of B12 into their systems, but sublingual forms of this supplement might change that, according to the experts. And as an additional side benefit, the quickly dissolving sublingual form of B12 lends itself to being flavored: cherry flavored for example.
B12 concentrations vary widely, from 500 micrograms (mcg) up to as high as 12000mcg strengths. Numerous studies confirm that 1000 mcg of B12 taken daily is quite sufficient under usual circumstances. Anything over that is mostly expelled by the body.
According to Matt Lambi, spokesman for M&M Beauty and Wellness, LLC - "If you currently take vitamin B12 or are even thinking about taking vitamin B12, take this one. It's everything you need in a B12 supplement: sublingually ingested, methylcobalamin form, 1000 mcg serving size, and a great cherry taste.
