Aliness Vitamin B12 Methylcobalamin is a unique, vegan supplement containing in 1 capsule as much as 900 mcg of methylated vitamin B12, i.e. methylcobalamin. This is extremely important because, compared to other forms of this vitamin, methylation does not need to be carried out by the body itself. Omitting this process significantly increases the bioavailability of the vitamin in the body. Methylcobalamin is known for its ability to regulate hematopoietic processes, it also improves the condition of the nervous system and mood. It positively affects the condition of the circulatory system, counteracting atherosclerosis.
Vitamin B12 is an organic compound belonging to the group of B vitamins, which are precursors to coenzymes. Vitamin B12 was discovered as the last one of this group, however, it is considered to be extremely important. Cobalamin is most commonly available on the market in the form of cyanocobalamin, and it less frequently occurs as adenosylcobalamin, hydroxocobalamin and finally in the form of methylcobalamin, contained in this preparation. The difference between these compounds lies in the ligand attached to the vitamin that determines the rate of absorption and bioavailability of the whole compound. Due to the multi-faceted impact on the human body, vitamin B12 is used in the treatment of many diseases, in some of which, it serves as a main therapeutic agent.
Technologically-advanced form for maximum benefits
When administering the standard form of vitamin B12, which is, for example, cyanocobalamin, the body itself has to carry out the methylation of this compound to methylcobalamin. Note that the ability of the system to conduct this process is individually variable – some people are genetically unable to carry out this process effectively. Therefore, it is extremely beneficial to administer vitamin B12 in methylated form, i.e. methylcobalamin, which additionally accelerates the availability of this compound in the body.
An additional advantage of methylcobalamin over the most commonly found in supplements – cyanocobalamin, is that there is no threat of toxicity of methyl groups, in contrast to cyanide. Unfortunately, the more advanced form of the Vitamin B12 is also much more expensive.
Effect of methylcobalamin on the nervous system
Methylcobalamin, being one of the most active forms of vitamin B12, is particularly effective as a support for the nervous system. Numerous studies proved that even small deviations from the norm towards methylcobalamin deficiency were manifested by a weakening of memory, a feeling of dullness and fogging of the mind. This effect is particularly common in seniors who are particularly at risk of deficiency of this vitamin, as a result of impoverished dietary products or past illnesses and operations. What is worse, this deficiency may lead to the occurrence and progression of dementia, Alzheimer's disease or damage to the structure of nerve cells.
The high level of vitamin B12 allows the occurrence of effective neuroregeneration processes, and it also has a scientifically-proved effect on the good condition of the myelin sheath.
As a result, cells that build the human nervous system can properly perform their functions; the risk of neuronal degeneration is also reduced.
The positive effect of methylcobalamin on the mood
Studies showed a direct correlation between the level of vitamin B12 in the plasma and the well-being and energy level of the subjects. This may be due to anemia caused by cobalamin deficiencies, the symptoms of which are, among others, weakness and lack of motivation. Another reason may be the use of methyl groups for the synthesis of neurotransmitters responsible for, among others, well-being, agitation and concentration. The positive effect of methylcobalamin on the mood may also be related to its ability to regenerate cells of the nervous system, which results in a reduced level of inflammation.
Antiatherosclerotic properties of methylcobalamin
Cobalamin also protects against excess homocysteine in the body. Homocysteine is one of the sulfur amino acids whose high level is considered to be a risk factor for atherosclerotic lesions. Vitamin B12 is necessary for proper methylation of homocysteine to methionine that, in turn, does not pose a threat to the health of the cardiovascular system. Low levels of homocysteine in the body also help to minimize the risk of developing diseases related to the degeneration of nervous system cells and tumors.
Methylcobalamin prevents the dysfunctions of hematopoietic processes
Vitamin B12 deficiency results in numerous symptoms, however, the most common disease caused directly by this factor is megaloblastic anemia. As a result of this disease, erythrocytes produced in the bone marrow reach remarkably large sizes, while their number decreases. This is due to the effect of cobalamin on the maturation of these cells.
To sum up, Alliness Vitamin B12 Methylcobalamin is a supplement that is a source of high-quality methylcobalamin. The preparation is especially aimed at those who do not get enough of this vitamin, people with excessive homocysteine or people who want to ensure the health of their nervous system, cardiovascular system and well-being.. It is also worth adding that the specially-patented capsules, Vcaps®, do not contain any animal-derived additives, making the preparation attractive to vegans.
This preparation contains a dose that is sufficient to replenish deficiencies resulting from the too low supply of cobalamin in the diet, hence do not exceed the number of capsules a day.
The supplement is aimed, among others, at vegans who, as a result of their diet, may supply too low doses of vitamin B12, which is present mainly in animal products.

Vitamin B12 (cobalamin, cyanocobalamin) is a vitamin soluble in liquids. Participates in the production of red blood cells and is essential in the absorption of iron by the body. It calming effect, a positive effect on concentration and memory. Intensifies its action in cooperation with folic acid (vitamin M). Usually occurs in animal products, fish and dairy products. It contains trace elements.
Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to pernicious anaemia, general and immunity weakness, inhibiting of growth and damage to the myelin sheath of nerves.
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.
