Methylcobalamin is essential for the body to recycle homocysteine and to form the internal 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 in cyanocobalamin and then attach a methyl group to form methylcobalamin.
Although research shows the quantity of cobalamin detected following an oral dose of methylcobalamin is similar to the amount following administration of cyanocobalamin, significantly more cobalamin accumulates in liver tissue following administration of methylcobalamin. And the urinary excretion of methylcobalamin is about one-third that of a similar dose of cyanocobalamin, indicating substantially greater tissue retention of the former.*
