Methyl B12 provides a high dose of the active, coenzyme form of vitamin B12. Cyanocobalamin, the most common form of supplemental B12, must be converted first into hydroxocobalamin, and then into adenosylcobalamin, which is finally converted into methylcobalamin. Taking methylcobalamin directly allows you to bypass this extensive conversion process, and is optimal since it is the specific form of B12 shown to support the brain and nervous system. In humans, supplementation with high doses of methylcobalamin has been shown to provide neurological support in people with degenerative nerve conditions such as Bell’s palsy, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease and degenerative spinal conditions. Methylcobalamin may also help normalize sleep-wake cycles, providing a better quality sleep for those who are deficient.
AOR’s Methyl B12 provides 15 mg in an easy to take, pleasant-tasting lozenge. This ultra-high dose formula has been shown to be safe and effective for people with advanced neurological conditions such as ALS or MS. Additionally, vegetarians, elderly people, those suffering from pernicious or megaloblastic anemia, atrophic gastritis, Celiac disease, Crohn’s disease or other types of inflammatory gastrointestinal disorders may benefit from high doses of methylcobalamin.
While the RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) for vitamin B12 in Canada is just 2.4 micrograms and the upper limit is just 1 milligram, AOR’s Methyl B12 – 15mg provides an ultra-high, clinically effective dosage of the most bioavailable form of vitamin B12 in a convenient and pleasant tasting lozenge form.

Methylcobalamin is the coenzyme form of vitamin B12. Several studies have found that people can have neurological signs and symptoms of a specific Methylcobalamin deficiency, even when serum B12, and blood tests which measure adenosylcobalamin acitivity, are perfectly normal. This is in large part because, while the body can store adenosylcobalamin (the other coenzyme form of vitamin B12) in the liver and mitochondria, Methylcobalamin is located in fluids like the cerebrospinal fluid and plasma, and is urinated out rather than stored.
Some signs and symptoms of a vitamin B12 deficiency can include high homocysteine, pernicious anemia (a type of autoimmune disorder that destroys certain stomach cells), mood changes, memory problems and neurological symptoms due to nerve damage.
It is now suggested that vitamin B12 deficiencies occur more often from malabsorption than from low intake. This means that B12 deficiencies may be more prevalent than was previously thought.
Methylcobalamin, the coenzyme form of vitamin B12, is beneficial for those who’s bodies fail to properly convert regular B12 to the usable form in the body. Vegetarians often take vitamin B12 supplements since dietary B12 is largely obtained from meat.
