Product Information

Methylcobalamin (an active form of vitamin B12) is essential for recycling homocysteine and the formation of methyl donors involved in cardiovascular function, sleep, blood cell formation, and nerve function.* Most vitamin B12 supplements contain cyanocobalamin; however, the liver must first "detoxify" the cyanide molecule and attach a methyl group to form methylcobalamin from the cyanocobalamin. Methylcobalamin is already in the biologically active, tissue-ready form.* Evidence indicates the body utilizes methylcobalamin more efficiently than it does cyanocobalamin.* Research shows the quantity of cobalamin detected following a small oral dose of methylcobalamin is similar to the amount following administration of cyanocobalamin; but significantly more cobalamin accumulates in liver tissue following administration of methylcobalamin. Human urinary excretion of methylcobalamin is about one-third that of a similar dose of cyanocobalamin, indicating substantially greater tissue retention.*

Mitochondrial Nutrients For Brain Vitality Webinar

Parris Kidd, PhD, provides a lively discussion of the research on essential nutrients for brain function, including CoQ10, lipoic acid, acetyl-L-carnitine, phosphatidylserine, benfotiamine, vitamin B12, folate, glutathione, and more. Proper function of ATP-generating mitochondria is essential to the health of every cell in the body, particularly in brain and nerve cells, and a number of nutrient cofactors are necessary for mitochondrial ATP production. Other nutrients have been researched for their ability to protect mitochondria from damage and enhance mitochondrial activity and brain function.
