Methylcobalamin is one of two coenzymes forms of B12. Evidence indicates that methylcobalamin has some metabolic and therapeutic applications not shared by the other forms of vitamin B12. Cyanocobalamin, the second coenzyme, is the most common form of B12 provided at physician offices and in over the counter supplements. Methylcobalamin is the more bio-available of the two, meaning that methylcobalamin is immediately ready for the body to use once injected. Cyanocobalamin must be first broken down within the liver only to produce small amounts of methylcobalamin which the body can utilize.
Methylcobalamin is a very effective treatment for B12 deficiencies commonly found in patients who suffer from disease or have nutritional deficits (such as ultra low calories or gastric bypass patients).
