Jarrow Formulas Methyl B12 – Extra strength: 5.000 mcg, cherry
Jarrow formulas methyl B12 is B-12 in fully active form. They come in a form of lozenges that are absorbed from the mouth and thus bypass any potential problems with the absorption of the intestines. B12 can not be produced by the body, so we must obtain it through the diet, and it is often necessary to replace it with a dietary supplement. In this case, it is important to choose the right and quality form.
Vitamin B12 is not found in any vegetable food nor algae nor produced by bacteria in the soil (these produce analogue forms of B12 which the body cannot use).
How are B vitamins different?
Not all B vitamins are the produced equally. If we ignore the contained quantities, we will see that there are still significant differences between them. In the case of vitamin B12, which in most supplements is found in the form of cyanocobalamin (cyano-cobalamin), B12 (oz. Cobalamin) is bound to the cyanide carrier. Do you remember what cyanide is? Yes-poison. Another form of B12 is Hydroxycobalamin, which is relatively unstable and is used in medicine as an antidote to cyanide poisoning. The active and stable form of vitamin B12 is methyl-cobalamin, where B12 is bound to the methyl group and can be directly involved in the methylation cycle (all other forms must be changed before they can be used).
So it does matter which B vitamins you choose.
Who’s B12 suitable for?
The supplement is suitable for all who want a quality substitute of this important B Vitamin. Especially suitable for vegans as they can not get B12 from food and for those who have difficulty with absorption, because our lozenges absorb already in the mouth.
