Methylcobalamin Max is a higher concentration of B12 at 10,000 mcg/ml, allowing for subcutaneous administration.Methylcobalamin is the most active form of the Vitamin B12 family. This is what the body converts Cyanocobalamin into, so it is more readily available to the body.
This form of B12 is better absorbed than Cyanocobalamin because it is more bioavailable. Vitamin B12 is an essential component for proper digestion and absorption of foods and for normal metabolism of carbohydrates, and fat. It aids in maintaining healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and is needed to make DNA. Vitamin B12 is also involved in homocysteine metabolism and plays a critical role in proper energy metabolism, immune function, and nerve function. Several disorders have recently been linked to possible vitamin B12 deficiencies.
Methylcobalamin also interacts differently with certain neurotransmitters within the brain and appears to be helpful in Autism. This product is lyophilized (freeze dried) so it does not require overnight shipping.
When administering high dose Methylcobalamin injections it is important to eat foods rich in electrolytes, especially potassium. You can also add electrolyte mixes to your water. Some people with Vitamin B12 deficiencies or pernicious anemia can develop low potassium that can at times manifest as fatigue, anxiety or agitation. This is a rare occurrence and is temporary if the electrolytes are restored.
