Methylcobalamin is the form of vitamin B12 most often recommended by knowledgable medical professionals because it does not add the minute amounts of cyanide which are found in the less expensive form of B12, cynocobalamin. Methylcobalamin supports and number of critical bodily functions, and is especially known for its impact on neurological functioning. Because it helps to regulate glutamate levels in the brain it thus supports normal brain cell functioning. Research suggests that vitamin B12 may also stimulate and support protein synthesis for maintenance of healthy nerve cells. Consequently, it has been shown to aid healthy memory, cognitive, emotional, and nerve function.
People who are on a vegan diet, with no meat or dairy should check with their medical professional to make sure they are not deficient in B12. The body stores B12 for many years, so such deficiency might not show up for some time.
