Methylcobalamin is the form of vitamin B12 active in the
central nervous system. It is essential for cell growth and
replication.96 In some people the liver may not convert
cyanocobalamin, the common supplemental form of vitamin
B12, into adequate amounts of methylcobalamin needed for
proper neuronal functioning.92 Methylcobalamin may exert
its neuroprotective effects through enhanced methylation,
acceleration of nerve cell growth, or its ability to maintain
already healthy homocysteine levels.97 For methylcobalamin
to be available to the brain, it should be allowed to dissolve
in the mouth.
