Methylcobalamin is the active coenzyme form of vitamin B12 and is used to help prevent B12 deficiency and pernicious anemia. Additionally, it is helpful for many neurological disorders; it can mend nervous function in patients with Bell’s palsy and multiple sclerosis, improve neurological symptoms in Alzheimer’s disease, improve nerve response in individuals with Lou Gehrig’s disease, and prevent nerve damage in glaucoma patients.
Due to its role in the methylation cycle, methylcobalamin is also effective for reducing high homocysteine levels.
Pro Methyl B12 provides 5 mg of methylcobalamin, a bioavailable and active form of B12 in a lozenge, making it simple to take for those who would benefit from supplementation at higher levels.

Forms of Vitamin B12
Cyanocobalamin, the most common form of supplemental B12, must be broken down into cobalamin and cyanide before it can be converted into methylcobalamin. This is a less efficient process and one that can be compromised by specific genetic mutations. Because of this, supplementation with methylcobalamin is preferable as it is the specific form of B12 shown to support the brain and nervous system.
While the Recommended Dietary Allowance for vitamin B12 in Canada is just 2.4 mcg, up to 30% of adults over the age of fifty have issues with B12 absorption, with rates as low as 1% from ingested vitamin B12. Deficiencies are also common in pregnant women, children, adolescents, and those following a vegan or vegetarian diet.
Risk factors such as stress, smoking, drug or alcohol use, can also contribute to vitamin B depletion in the body.
Functions of Vitamin B12
The main function of vitamin B12 is food metabolism and energy production, but it also plays a role in DNA synthesis and the formation of red blood cells, as well as brain and nervous system function. B12 is important during pregnancy, as the body’s demand grows to support fetal development. Studies show that B12 (and folate) deficiency in pregnant or breastfeeding women can lead to serious complications.
