Today we’re going to talk about a type of vitamin B12 I would avoid: cyanocobalamin.
Cyanocobalamin is a synthetic version of vitamin B12. It’s a very cheap version, and it’s hiding in many fortified grain foods, synthetic vitamins, energy drinks, B12 injections, and even infant formulas. It’s also typically present in very high doses in these products.
The problem is that there is a cyanide molecule attached to the cobalamin. Cyanide shuts down the oxygen to your mitochondria.
Potential side effects of cyanocobalamin:
• Stomach problems
• Low potassium
It’s true that the liver can detoxify small amounts of cyanide. But what if someone consumes large amounts of products containing this synthetic B12?
Some people also have problems with their detoxification genes that could cause them to have trouble getting rid of cyanide. Another common genetic problem with methylation can cause the effects of synthetic vitamin B12 to be worse.
The best form of vitamin B12 is the natural version called methylcobalamin. This version is the active form of vitamin B12 and stays in the body longer than the synthetic versions.
Potential benefits of methylcobalamin:
• It may help improve sleep
• It can decrease the need for sleep
• It can help you wake up feeling alert and refreshed
• It can help you fall asleep faster
• It’s great for the nervous system (especially the myelin sheath)
• It supports healthy eyes
• It increases melatonin
• It decreases homocysteine
• It can help regulate cortisol
• It supports the red blood cells
Causes of vitamin B12 deficiency:
• Not consuming foods high in vitamin B12
• Stomach inflammation
• H. pylori
• Low stomach acid
• Gastric bypass
• Inflammation in the intestines
