Methylcobalamin is the active, coenzyme form of vitamin B12. Cyanocobalamin, the most common form of supplemental B12, must be converted first into hydroxocobalamin, and then into adenosylcobalamin, which is finally converted into methylcobalamin. Since cyanocobalamin has to undergo this extensive conversion process, supplementation with methylcobalamin is optimal since it is the specific form of B12 shown to support the brain and nervous system. In humans, supplementation with high doses of methylcobalamin has been shown to provide neurological support in people with degenerative nerve conditions such as Bell's palsy, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig's disease and degenerative spinal conditions. Methylcobalamin may also help normalize sleep-wake cycles, providing a better quality sleep for some.
