Vitamin B12 Gold
NutriGold Vitamin B12 Gold is a water-soluble vitamin that helps support optimal brain and nervous system health and assists in the formation of red blood cells. Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is one of the eight B vitamins and is involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body including DNA synthesis and regulation, synthesis of fatty acids, and energy production. Vitamin B12 comes in four forms and differentiates by the side group that attaches to the cobalamin molecule — adenosylcobalamin, cyanocobalamin, hydroxocobalamin, and methylcobalamin.
Different Forms of B12
Methylcobalamin is a form of B12 that coenzymates and activates within the body to perform a specific function within the body. It is predominantly found in blood plasma, cytosol cells, and certain body fluids (like cerebral spinal fluid), works directly within the cells. It is responsible for the reactivation of folic acid (folate). Methylcobalamin also helps break down homocysteine, an amino acid and byproduct of protein metabolism, that can adversely impact heart health. Methylcobalamin is also a precursor of S-adenosylmethionine (or SAMe), the most important methyl donor in the body. Overall methylcobalamin supports cardiovascular function, neurological health, and emotional wellness.
Similar to Methylcobalamin, Adenosylcobalamin is a form of B12 that performs a specific function within the body. Found in the mitochondria, cellular tissues store Adenosylcobalamin. These are also ‘energy centers’ in the body. The liver actually stores most of the B12 reserves as adenosylcobalamin. They convert to methylcobalamin as needed. As a result, the adenosylcobalamin supports optimal liver health and plays a vital role in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism.
