Methylcobalamin is the biologically active coenzyme form of vitamin B12.
In contrast to conventional vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin), it can be used directly by the body without first having to be converted into the biologically active coenzyme B 12.
Therefore, methylcobalamin has a higher bioavailability and is the best form for an optimal vitamin B12 supply in vitamin B12 capsules.
Vitamin B12 is found almost exclusively in animal products, such as beef and beef liver, lamb, fish, venison, salmon, shrimp, scallops, poultry and eggs. This is why vegetarians and vegans often lack vitamin B12, especially when dairy products and eggs are not consumed.
Many older people also have a vitamin B12 deficiency. The reason for this, is the decrease in the production of stomach acid with age. This helps to remove vitamin B12 from food.
Vitamin B12 is one of the water-soluble vitamins and is very safe. The body uses the amount needed individually at a certain point in time and excretes the rest through the urine. Vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin has no side effects even in very high doses.
The currently recommended daily requirement of 2.5 mcg is the amount that humans need in order not to get any deficiency symptoms. But this does not mean that the daily requirement is a maximum limit.
Instead it is an approximate minimum amount that the majority of the population needs in order not to get a deficiency. In fact, the need can vary greatly depending on the life situation, age and diet.
Therefore, orthomolecular doctors recommend much higher amounts than the recommended daily requirement, if not only to compensate for a deficiency, but to also boost a person's vitality and energy by taking vitamin B12.
The most common recommended dosage of methylcobalamin is 1000 mcg per day.
