I am getting white hair very early & quickly compared to my elder brothers. Is vitamin B12 or can you advise on medicine that can sustain my melanin.

No pills: You may dye your hair if grey is cosmetically troublesome to you. As an aside, masturbation does not cause gray hair. B12 or other vitamins are not likely to be helpful unless you are deficient in those. ...Read more

Is cyanocobalamin toxic because it has cyanide attached to it?

Is cyanocobalamin toxic because it has cyanide attached to it?

No, however...: A famous saying is "the poison is in the dose." Cyanide naturally occurs in trace amounts in many foods including almonds, soy and spinach. The amount of cyanide when we metabolize cyanocobalamin is tiny and it's detoxified by our body. However, we need to convert it to the active form, methylcobalamin, so better to take that form so we don't have to convert it and not waste our detox resources. ...Read more

Does vitamin B12 really use cyanide in the form of cyanocobalamin?

Does vitamin B12 really use cyanide in the form of cyanocobalamin?

Avoid cyanocobalamin: Cyanocobalamin is a cheap synthetic form of B12 that does release cyanide when metabolized by our bodies. The amount of cyanide is small and our bodies can detoxify it, but our bodies have to work to convert Cyanocobalamin to methylcobalamin, the active form. It is far better to take the methylcobalamin form. See http://www. Naturalnews. Com/027045_vitamin_b12_cyanocobalamin_methylcobalamin. Html. ...Read more

What are the differences between vitamin B12 methylcobalamin, cyanocobalamin, and methylcyanocobalamin?

What are the differences between vitamin B12 methylcobalamin, cyanocobalamin, and methylcyanocobalamin?

See below: The body needs to methylate B-12 so it becomes biologically active to engage in chemical reactions, so the methylated forms are in that category, and the other would need chemical transformation to be active.
Lately, there seem to be some concerns regarding safety and efficacy of the cyanocobalamin, but not a proven fact. ...Read more

Does being a recreational endurance athlete have an impact on the dose of cyanocobalamin I should take monthly (have b12 deficiency).

Does being a recreational endurance athlete have an impact on the dose of cyanocobalamin I should take monthly (have b12 deficiency).

You don't say if you: Are B12 deficient due to pernicious anemia, and consequently, take B12 by injection in high oral supplement doses. The ability, or lack of ability, to absorb B12 in the stomach is the most important determinant of dose. Usual supplement dosage is 1-2 mg/day. I could find no evidence that this needs to be increased or modified in the circumstance of endurance training and competition. Monitor level ...Read more

Can there be a multivitamin that uses methylcobalamin instead of cyanocobalamin?

Can there be a multivitamin that uses methylcobalamin instead of cyanocobalamin?

Not necessarily: Why do you wish to take a multivitamin, as recent studies suggest people have worse outcomes when they do take vitamins in that form. Also, many of the standard multivitamins do not dissolve in the gut, so not absorbed. Methylcobalamin is the biologically active form, and is present in medical foods, prescription items, but may be available in health food stores. ...Read more

My cyanocobalamin injection is 6 yrs expired. What would happen if I took it?

Nothing: Why would you use this???? It is probably low potency. B12 is cheap. Why inject it? Most patients today are given a daily 1000mcg "nugget" to swallow. It is cheap and completely free of side effects. What is the indication? This is a long-term therapy, not an occasional treatment. ...Read more

Is methylcobalamin really better than cyanocobalamin?

Similar: The methyl form is biologically active, and will directly interact with receptors, but in most cases, the body will convert the other form readily, so in the end, there is equivalency. ...Read more

Which is a better B12 source? Methylcobalamin vs. Cyanocobalamin

Methylcobalamin: Methylcobalamin is by far the best form of vitamin b12. This is the co-enzymated active form that our bodies use. When we take Cyanocobalamin our bodies must first convert it into methylcobalamin, so it is better to take the active form and save your body the trouble of making this conversion. See http://www. Naturalnews. Com/027045_vitamin_b12_cyanocobalamin_methylcobalamin. Html. ...Read more

Can I inject cyanocobalamin today and then inject methylcobalamin the day after tomorrow?

Can I inject cyanocobalamin today and then inject methylcobalamin the day after tomorrow?

Why do that?: If your physician recommended it to be done this way I would ask them for their reasoning. Otherwise, I don't see the logic in doing 2 separate injections of cobalamin as you suggest. I would choose one formulation and provide my patient with a single injection with the proper amount I wanted them to receive and be done. ...Read more

B12 as methylcobalamin or B12 as cyanocobalamin - which one is safer/better and in what form : pills or sublingual?

No difference: 2 mg oral is supposed to be as good as sub lingual. I usually recommend 1.7 mg SL liquid every week for 2 months then once every 2 weeks thereafter. I recommend maintaining a level of 550 at all times. One should also check folate (folic acid) level and make sure that is OK. If anemic and you are replacing B12 its wise to check for low potassium as correction of the anemia can deplete K+ stores. ...Read more

Can cyanocobalamin be lethal or harmful to the human body if it cannot process the cyanide component? If yes, should one avoid cyanocobalamin?

Can cyanocobalamin be lethal or harmful to the human body if it cannot process the cyanide component? If yes, should one avoid cyanocobalamin?

No worries: Cyanocobalamin has trace amounts of cyanide; the usual dose is 1 mg (one thousandth of a gram) or less; only some of that is the cyanide, which is readily detoxed by several mechanisms so everyone can likely clear it. There is cyanide in almonds, bamboo shoots, cassava and other foods.
I advise taking methylcobalamin, the active form we convert the cyano form to, as some have trouble converting it. ...Read more

Do all fortified foods contain cyanocobalamin or do some contain methyl or hydroxo, and which natural sources of b12, are the most bioavailable?

Do all fortified foods contain cyanocobalamin or do some contain methyl or hydroxo, and which natural sources of b12, are the most bioavailable?

Most cyanocobalamin: No way of knowing if "all" have the cyano form but I believe virtually all have that form as it is the least expensive and most widely available. But methylcobalamin is the optimal form for supplementation- see http://tinyurl. Com/h7scsna
Some foods contain higher concentrations of B12 but the form found in food is hydoxycobalamin so all equally bioavailable. See http://tinyurl. Com/j7npwg3 ...Read more

Please tell me if there are any cereals or other B12 fortified vegan foods using hydroxocobalamin (not cyanocobalamin)?

Probably not but...: As far as I know, all foods fortified with B12 are fortified with the cyanocobalamin form, as it is the least expensive. It is hard to know for sure, as the labels always just say B12 and don't specify the type. But if anyone is going to the extra expense of fortifying with hydroxocobalamin they are not telling us!
I advise vegans supplement with hyroxocobalamin or methylcobalamin. See comment: ...Read more
