Methlycobalamin and prostate cancer

by Bette

I really appreciate your website! It's so informative. I was wondering if it would be ok for someone with high PSA count to take MB12? If it is ok, Then how often could 5,000 mcg sublingual be taken?

Thank you!

I don't know

Hi Bette,

The problem with your question is that it puts me on the 'hook' for saying whether someone 'can' take something with a specific condition or not. It puts me in a position to be liable that if you decide to take it and something goes wrong, then you can say, "Hey, this person told me it was OK.". Unfortunately, even though I KNOW of no good reason why someone with a high PSA or prostate cancer shouldn't be able to take Methylcobalamin B12, that doesn't mean that there isn't a good reason why that person shouldn't take it.

So, the best that I can do to answer your question is to tell you that, to the best of my knowledge, there is no good reason that someone with a high PSA or prostate cancer should not be able to take Methylcobalamin. But, as always, do your own due diligence before taking any supplements.

MB12 & cancer
by: Anonymous

I've read conflicting reports about this. Cyanocobalamin definitely is not safe, but I don't know about MB12. I take a lot, about 10000 mcg a day, so I don't know if I should be afraid. Still I know of some people who take upwards to 50,000 msg a day. My family has a prostate & lung cancer risk, so I don't know if I should continue using it sublingually.

Unfortunately it is one of the only things that have helped me neurologically since my severe brain injury 24 years ago. Well that's not entirely true. Cannabis high in THC also helps it. Unfortunately it is still illegal in my state. I think although I'm not completely sure that the reason both help is because they are powerful antioxidants that bypass the blood brain barrier. After a TBI these oxidants tend to cause even more difficulty, then the original injury did. Glutathione is another powerful antioxidant that has been reported to aid cognition. Like Cannabis it also seems to prevent cancer.
