Adensosylcobalamin vs other forms of Vitamin B12

by deb

I've read that adenosylcobalamin is another "active" form of B12 that is supposedly the most easily absorbed form of B12. What is your opinion? Thanks.

I prefer Methylcobalamin B12, specifically because it's been shown to 'bathe' neurons and thus have specific benefits for neurologic issues. It also donates a 'methyl' group for detoxification, and a very large percentage of the population has genetic or toxicity issues that make the form of detoxification called 'methylation' difficult if not impossible. So, methylcobalamin is superior for most people for these reasons. If you 'just' want to raise your B12 levels and increase your stores of the vitamin in your liver, then any form is probably fine, but if you want to take advantage of the neurologic and detoxification functions of B12, then methylcobalamin is your B12 of choice.
