Experience the Difference at Got Vitamin B12
One might think that there is only one type or form of injectable Vitamin B12, but (You guessed it, didn’t you?) there are a total of three types of injectable Vitamin B12: Methylcobalamin, Hydroxocobalamin and Cyanocobalamin. Like many things in life, there are choices and differences between things that seem very similar. Commercially available Cyanocobalamin (a synthetic form of B12) and Hydroxocobalamin (a natural form of B12) are two more common forms of injectable Vitamin B12 in the United States. Studies have shown that Hydroxocobalamin is a better form with greater binding and slower diffusion than Cyanocobalamin.
Current studies also reveal Methylcobalamin is the superior, most bioactive form of injectable Vitamin B12 and can cross the blood-brain barrier. Research indicates that Methylcobalamin is superior to Hydroxocobalamin for Vitamin B12 metabolism and the central nervous system. In addition, this particular form of Vitamin B12 provides the body with methyl groups essential for utilization in the body, including the cerebrospinal fluid, blood plasma, and the cytosol of cells. Could It Be B12? authors Sally M. Pacholok, R.N., B.S.N. and Jeffrey J. Stuart, D.O. recommend effective B12 screening and treatments using Methylcobalamin, and recommend using Hydroxocobalamin over Cyanocobalamin.
If you have had Vitamin B12 injections in the past and not felt or seen results, you should experience a Got Vitamin B12 Happy Hour with the Methylcobalamin form of Vitamin B12. Methylcobalamin is available only through a compounding pharmacy, and must be administered by a doctor or naturopathic doctor. Got Vitamin B12 uses the best available Methylcobalamin on the market, which we source from a San Francisco compounding pharmacy.
