Methylcobalamin is a form of vitamin B-12. There are other forms of vitamin B-12 as well, however only methylcobalamin can be utilized in the central nervous system. Cyanocobalamin is the most common form of vitamin B-12 and is the form used in most vitamin supplements. The reason for cyanocobalamin's presence in multivitamin supplements is its superb long term stability and its relatively low cost. Cyanocobalamin is converted to methylcobalamin in the liver, but not in amounts that are considered therapeutically significant. For this reason, many physicians are using very high doses of methylcobalamin. Usually it is given subcutaneously, though some physicians are trying other administration avenues. Methylcobalamin is also the form of B-12 which is most active and extremely important in folate chemistry and methylation processes in the body.
