Re: Awesome B12 vitamins for anyone who wants them!!
Most of the B-12 supplements on the market is cyanocobalamin. From what I have read, in order for your body to utilize B-12, it must first convert cyanocobalamin to methylcobalamin. Not all of the cyanocobalamin is likely to get converted, so it is less efficiently utilized. Since methylcobalamin can be immediately utilized, it is probably better absorbed, and is therefore a better B-12 supplement. It does cost more than the cyanocobalamin, but it may be worth it. I use the 1000mcg Vitamin Shoppe brand of methylcobalamin. The Vitamin Shoppe carries several different brands, including Solaray, so you may be able to find it there.
