Methylcobalamin is the active form of vitamin B12 in the central nervous system. In some individuals the liver may not be able to convert cyanocobalamin into adequate amounts of methylcobalamin for proper neuronal functioning. Methylcobalamin may exert its neuroprotective effects through enhanced methylation, acceleration of nerve cell growth, or its ability to reduce elevated homocysteine levels. For methylcobalamin to be available to the brain it should be either injected or dissolved under the tongue as oral forms are not effective. For more information on methylcobalamin click here.
DOSE: The usual dose is 1 to 4mg dissolved under the tounge daily.

I am using these B12 troches as they help replenish my levels of Cobalt (contained within the Methylcobalamin) which are severely depleted due to malabsorption caused by Coeliac Disease. They are easy to use and I dissolve one each day after breakfast. They help with 'brain fog' and treat the peripheral neuropathy in both hands/wrists. Highly recommended.
