Description

Vitamin B12 is present in foods of animal origin, including dairy products and eggs. Therefore, vegetarians are more susceptible to a dietary deficiency of this important nutrient. Also, serum concentrations of vitamin B12 are significantly lower in the elderly population groups compared to the younger groups. It is estimated that between 10% and 30% of people over the age of 50 have low stomach acid secretion, resulting in a decrease in the bioavailability of vitamin B12 from food. Methylcobalamin is the form of vitamin B12 active in the central nervous system. It is essential for cell growth and replication. In some people, the liver may not convert cyanocobalamin, the common supplemental form of vitamin B12, into adequate amounts of methylcobalamin necessary for proper neuronal function. Methylcobalamin may exert its neuroprotective effects through enhanced methylation, acceleration of nerve cell growth, or its ability to maintain already healthy homocysteine ??levels.
