Methyl B-12 Methyl B-12

Now Foods Methyl B-12 is a dietary supplement with vitamin B12 in the form of methylcobalamin. It is the most absorbable, metabolically active and effective form of vitamin B12 capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier.

Vitamin B12 is one of several water-soluble vitamins. It takes part in chemical reactions that occur in every cell of the human body. It is necessary for the normal functioning of the brain and the nervous system, the production of blood, fatty acids and cellular energy.

Cobalamins are a group of chemical compounds which contain cobalt. Vitamin B12 has the most complicated chemical structure among all of them. The active form of the vitamin is produced only by microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, fungi and yeasts).

Vitamin B12 plays an important role in the production of new cells. With its deficiency, the process is highly impeded. It refers to blood cells in particular, as they regenerate very often. The consequence of the deficiency is, therefore, a chain of problems: a significant decrease of the organism's immunity (degenerated white blood cells), frequent infections resulting from it, then, in turn, periodic bone aches, which is nothing more than a reaction to toxins produced by microbes.

B12 deficiency manifests itself through frequent diarrhoea, as the mucous membrane of the intestines needs to regenerate as well. Other consequences are atrophic glossitis, burning mouth. The worst, however, is a chain of symptoms of the nervous system. These are the most dangerous, as they may have very harsh consequences when ignored for too long - serious damage is, unfortunately, irreversible. The symptoms are mild paralysis, particularly of legs, problems with walking or balance.

All that would be accompanied by a low mood. There is also macrocytic anaemia whose symptoms are weakness, shortness of breath, freezing of arms and legs, and the latter may lead to bone aches.

Methylcobalamin is the most efficient, absorbable and biologically active form of vitamin B12. It is the only one that crosses the blood-brain barrier, which allows it to affect the functioning of the central nervous system. Thanks to its methyl groups, it stimulates the production of serotonin ( a neurotransmitter responsible for the feeling of happiness). It is of crucial importance in the process of cell growth and replication.

In some people, the liver is unable to convert cyanocobalamin, a form of vitamin B12 common in supplements, to proper amounts of methylcobalamin which is necessary for the normal functioning of neurons or the direct protection of brain cells from dangerous toxins.

Methylcobalamin’s neuroprotective effect is a result of increased methylation, accelerated nerve cell growth and the ability to neutralise a high level of homocysteine, responsible for the diseases of the cardiovascular system, atherosclerotic changes, thrombotic lesions, cardiac arrests and strokes.

Vitamin B12 is destroyed by high temperature. Studies have demonstrated that boiling, frying or otherwise heat treating of products with vitamin B12 destroys from about 23% to as much as 97% of the vitamin in it, depending on the type of the product, the temperature and the time of heat treating.

To sum up, thanks to a high methylcobalamin content, Now Foods Methyl B-12 is a perfect supplement when it comes to supplying the organism with the best form of vitamin B12. It can be consumed by people who want to maintain a healthy nervous system, and by those who want to eliminate the symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency. It is particularly recommended for people with distorted processes of methylation and a high level of homocysteine.

Methylcobalamin

Information

What is methylcobalamin?

Methylcobalamin is a biologically active form of vitamin B12. It is one of the two forms of this vitamin that may be used as cofactors in various reactions. It differs from popular cyanocobalamin in the presence of methyl group instead of cyanide, thanks to which it releases the organism from the need of neutralizing this harmful factor.

The methyl group from methylcobalamin may be transferred to homocysteine, thanks to which it comes back in the form of methionine in order to be further converted to SAMe, which is the main donor of methyl groups in our organism. These methyl groups may be then used in the processes of creatine production, in neurotransmitter metabolism and as DNA methylation, thanks to which we achieve proper energy level, better well-being and generally better condition of the organism. B12 is a coenzyme for three enzymes: isomerase, methyltransferase and dehalogenase.

Apart from the influence on the nervous system, the supply of vitamin B12 is also very important for the proper synthesis of red cells as well as hemoglobin and anemia prevention.

 

Methylcobalamin in mono-supplements and complex vitamin preparations may be found in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
