Vitamin B12 is commonly found in products of animal origin such as dairy products and eggs. Vegetarians are therefore more likely to have a Vitamin B12 deficiency. It is also known that a Vitamin B12 deficiency often occurs with aging. There are estimates that 10-30% of the population over the age of 50 can no longer properly convert Vitamin B12.
The most absorbable forms of vitamin B12 are methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin. Both are biologically active forms that no longer need to be converted by the stomach and intestines. Both methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin have important advantages over other inactive forms of vitamin B12. vitamin Vitamin B12, is active in the central nervous system. It is important for cell growth and reproduction. In some people, cyanocobalamin (the most commonly used cheap form of vitamin B12) is not converted by the liver to adequate amounts of methylcobalamin. Methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin is therefore used by us in the support of the functioning of the nervous system and support for a good homocysteine level.
