The Methylcobalamin & Cyanocobalamin Difference
It comes down to one molecule. The methylcobalamin has a methyl group (carbon and hydrogen), while
the cyanocobalamin has a cyanide group. What? Cyanide? In my Vitamin B-12, you might ask?? Well, rest assured, there’s no cyanide in our Vitamin B12, made with methylcobalamin versus cyanocobalamin. Why? Well, because our bodies have no use for the cyano-compound. Once in our bodies, we will begin trying to remove it. Interestingly, this compound does not occur naturally in any living organism. Although the amount of cyanide released in the conversion process is not thought, at this time, to cause any damage. We ask though, why put a known poison in your body when you don’t have to?
As well, we ask, why take the inactive form (cyano-), which requires the body to break it down into the active form (methyl), when you can start with the active form right from the moment it enters our body? Well, you don’t have to with Live Wise Naturals Vitamin B-12. It’s made with NON-GMO methylcobalamin, and your body will absorb it, use it, and love it!
