Hi Andrew: I have a question about Vitamin B12. I know the B12 you are using, like many other manufactures, are synthetic form of Cyanocobalamin. But I know some manufactures are using Methylcobalamin form of B12. They claim Methylcobalamin is a better form of B12 than Cyanocobalmin. What is your comments on this? And if Methylcobalamin is a better form of B12, why aren’t you using it? I’m not trying to be offensive here but just trying to understand the different between those two forms of B12.
i have the same question as LLS above, regarding methylcobalamin vs. cyanocobalamin. i was just sent information about a b12 patch that uses methylcobalamin.
here is a ‘blip’ from the info i received regarding this. i hope you will comment.
" Many multivitamins only contain 1-10 mcg of the cyanocobalamin form of B-12. It then needs to be converted to methylcobalamin before it can be used by the body. The absorbtion of B-12 is a serious problem with oral supplementation. For example, taking 500 mcg of vitamin B-12 can result in as little as 1.8 mcg that will be absorbed into the body. That is 99% waste! "
I just ordered the B-Complex and I cannot wait to get it! I know I will feel a difference, as I do with all of your vitamins. It’s kind of a funny thing when I think of how every meal I eat is accompanied by AL vitamins! Thanks to you Andrew, my hair is finally growing, my joints feel healthier, and my overall health is just better. 😉
Yes, Em, that is another solid argument. I think I can understand somewhat, the feeling of having your life used as enreattinment for people who might not really understand the true issues surrounding the struggles. I do get that. Which is why, when I get to writing about a situation like that I get someone who *has* gone through it to help me get it right.
