Product Description

Methylcobalamin is a highly valuable breakthrough supplement that contains the vital ingredient vitamin B12. The body's naturally occurring vitamin B12 plays an important role in the function of the brain, nervous system and the blood, by supporting these systems to maintain all-over health.

Where as many B12 supplements give you cyanocobalamin, which requires the body to work to convert it to Methylcobalamin, this incredible health supplement gets straight to the most nourishing potential of B12 by giving you a direct dose of Methylcobalamin, which is easily absorbed into the body.

Taking a Methylcobalamin health supplement can be an easy and effective way to support a healthy lifestyle. Used as a compliment to a healthy diet and fitness regime, Methylcobalamin can inspire a holistic approach to your physical and mental wellbeing.

Methylcobalamin may support a variety of functions of the body including:
Maintenance of a good sleep regime.
Support for the neurological system.
Support for brain health and fitness.

5.0 out of 5 stars ME on the way out 24 May 2013
By Kate72
Having suffered from chronic fatigue/ME for the last two years a little but if research and bloody minded ness remembered my GP saying 'your blood tests have come back and you're slightly B12 deficient, take these- 50ug- the minimum amount a GP can prescribe, take Citalapram and Amitriptaline for the pain of the ME- we'll do another blood test in 3 mths to see if your B12 improves.
Did he do another blood test? No. Just kept prescribing the antidepressants for the ME.
I increased my B12 significantly and then started researching B12 deficiency and all the things that are diagnosed instead if B12.
I purchased a book 'Could it be B12' and I haven't looked back.
B12 deficiency can be irreversible and fatal. The book detailed in both medical and layman terms the amounts needed to try to reverse the damage caused.
I have been a vegetarian for 30 years, since the age if 10. I had been investigated during this period of time for many illnesses including Multiple Sclerosis. MRI scans, the works.
How much money could the NHS save if it were just to investigate B12 deficiency a little more.
If you're lucky and get seen by a newly qualified GP they may pick up on it.
I take 10mg a day, 5 in the morning and 5 at night.
I no longer suffer the pain of 'ME', I have stopped taking the prescribed medication and I'm not looking back.
Have I returned to my GP? No, what's the point- I can never get an appointment unless it's 'urgent' the receptionists vet every call. Will my GP contact me to see why I haven't been in, doubtful.
Do the research, I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems a good product at a reasonable price 29 Dec 2013
By Jon65
Verified Purchase
I'll keep this as short as possible. I'm taking B12 for serious reasons, not as a pick me up or anything like that. I have a neuropathy whose cause has not yet been firmly established, but it prevents my nerves sending signals to the leg muscles properly and I have difficulty walking, balance problems, and am effectively housebound. To a lesser extent, the hands are also affected. Blood tests and nerve conduction studies have been done, but it will be a month before I see the consultant neurologist again for a final diagnosis. He mentioned four main possibilities at the time of my first examination, three of which now seem unlikely. That leaves the other, which is B12 deficiency neuropathy. For many years I took omeprazole for acid reflux, which I now know from the internet - though the neurologist didn't mention it - in the longer term can prevent B12 in food being absorbed (and have now stopped that). It seems plausible that the omeprazole is implicated, though my GP was non-committal when I put it to him a couple of weeks ago.

Meanwhile, my own research suggests that if it really is a B12 problem, that should be corrected urgently if there's to be any chance of partially reversing the damage and disability.

After 5 weeks of taking 3 a day, it's still too early to know how much they may be helping, though the pain in my hands has lessened. All I can really say so far is that these tablets are much less expensive than others, arrived quickly, and are not troublesome to take. They can take as long as 45 minutes to dissolve, but that's OK as it takes time for the B12 to be absorbed from the mucosa in the mouth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Taste nice and does seem to do what it's meant 19 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase
I actually use this as a pick-me-up, as suggested by Dr Mercola. First time - I did get a warm flush to my head and after - I didn't notice anything different. It's nice tasting too - its sweet; but it does not use sugar or Aspartame - which I'm careful to avoid. Will buy again.

I had no problems ordering this item. It arrived in no time. I was glad that I found this kind of vitamin B12 on Amazon for a good price as you often have to pay more elsewhere. This is the best form of vitamin B12 and highly important to your well-being and not many people know that. A lack in vitamin B12 can lead to all sorts of problems. Especially for vegetarians (like myself)and elderly people a lack can occur after some time. Thank you Amazon that you had this best form of vitamin B12 for absorbtion of the human body available for a decent price and also in a highly concentrated form, so that you can actually brake the tablets apart as you don't need that much per day.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE ONLY ONE STRONG ENOUGH ? 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
There are plenty of B12 products on the market, but none seem strong enough to be really useful - unless you take several as a single dose, which then makes them very expensive. All kinds of things seem to inhibit absorption, from old age to Proton Pump Inhibitors (of which I have both), which is apparently why serious cases of deficiency require injections. Research has apparently suggested that 2mg is the minimum useful oral dose - and most products seem to be 1mg or even less, some only 0.1mg, which seems to me to be totally useless.

Some products don't tell you the source of the B12; a popular source is cyanocobalamin which, as the name might indicate, is cyanide based. De-toxified, of course, but it's also much less digestible than hydroxcobalamin, which in turn seems less effective than methylcobalamin.

So I give 5 stars to this company for offering the best source of B12 at the highest strength. B12 toxicity is said to be nil, except in rare cases of allergy and a mysterious condition called Leber's, which is affected only by Cyanocobalamin.

I recommend the Pachalok/Stuart publication "Could it be B12 ?"; it's aimed at medical professionals, but covers all the issues very comprehensively.

B12 is destroyed in the stomach - it has to be spray, sublingual or patch. High "absorption" in the digestive system is misleading! Read more
