Life Extension Vitamin B12 Methylcobalamin:Methylcobalamin is the most active form of vitamin B12 in the central nervous system and is absorbed readily into the bloodstream. The liver may not convert cyanocobalamin, the common supplemental form of vitamin B12, into adequate amounts of methyl-cobalamin the body may need for proper neuronal functioning.

Vitamin B12 is known as the "energy vitamin" and is essential for many critical functions in the body including energy production, supporting the immune system and helping to regulate the formation of red blood cells.

The older you get the more likely you are to have a vitamin B12 deficiency because the digestive system loses its ability to absorb this vitamin due to a lack of acid production which is required to release B12 from foods. The use of antacids and anti-ulcer drugs also diminishes the levels of this vitamin as is a vegetarian diet. It is estimated that well over half the population may be B12 deficient.

Vitamin B12 is required for:

  • Energy production
  • Red blood cell production
  • Optimal nerve function
  • The manufacture of melatonin - the sleep hormone
  • Adrenal hormone production further helping to release energy and counter stress.
