Prairie Naturals Vitamin B12 Methylcobalamin with Folic Acid Details
Vitamin B12 plays an important role in the formation of red blood cells, the prevention and treatment of anemia and immune system regulation. Methylcobalamin is the active form of vitamin B12 that acts as a co-factor for methionine synthase in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine, thus lowering blood levels of homocysteine. Methylcobalamin acts as a methyl donor and participates in the synthesis of SAM-e (S-adenosylmethionine), a nutrient that has powerful mood elevating properties. Each delicious natural cherry-flavoured sublingual tablet provides 1000 mcg of methylcobalamin B12 along with 500 mcg of Folic Acid.
B12 is a water-soluble B vitamin. Deficiencies of B12 may not be seen for several years because the body can store up to 5 years worth of this vitamin. There are several forms of B12 including cyanocobalamin and methylcobalamin. B12 is required in areas where there is high cell turnover, for example the gastrointestinal tract, bone marrow and nervous system. Thus B12 has been used for the treatment of neurological diseases like multiple sclerosis and depression.
