What is the difference between Cyanocobalamin vs. Methylcobalamin
One of the eight B vitamins is called Cobalamin; it is involved in fatty acid synthesis and energy production but also includes the metabolism of every cell of the human body, especially affecting DNA synthesis and regulation. It is the largest and most structurally complicated vitamin that can only be produced industrially through bacterial fermentation-synthesis. A popular and money saving synthetic form of the vitamin would be cyanocobalamin (B12), which does not occur in nature, but is used in many pharmaceuticals, supplements, and as a food additive, because of its stability and lower cost.
In the body cyanocobalamin (B12) is converted to the physiological forms, methylcobalamin (B12) and adenosylcobalamin, leaving behind a small amount of cyanide. Because this B vitamin leaves a small trace of cyanide, your body will still need to remove and eliminate this compound. The removal can be accomplished through any detoxification system, but USVitaminInjections.com recommends you use our all natural glutathione injection. Although Methylcobalamin (B12) is much more expensive compared to Cyanocobalamin (B12), there are many reasons supporting why. Methylcobalamin (B12) is used in the treatment of peripheral neuropathy, diabetic neuropathy, and as a preliminary treatment for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
