Why Don’t You Use Methylcobalamin?
Q Just wondering why you still use cyanocobalamin instead of methylcobalamin as your B12. Don’t we know enough about the difference by now and why it’s superior and, for many, the only form they (due to genetics) can benefit from? I’d love to be able to use your multis, but . . .

A The amount of research done with cyanocobolamin exceeds that of methylcobalamin by 40 times. While there are a few uses of methylcobalamin that are not found for cyanocobalamin, the reverse is true, and cyanocobalamin leads by a wide gap. Moreover, cyanocobalamin is converted to its active forms, first hydroxocobalamin and then methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin in the liver.
If you want methylcobalamin, you can find it in Dr. Jonathan Wright’s ProBone-O and ProBone-O Plus drops. All of our other products use cyanocobalamin for the greatest number of foundational benefits.
