Yesterday I wrote about the inherent potential that exists and therefore causes Vitamin B12 absorption issues. Today I want to insinuate that there is really no reason to have your clients mess around with anything other than taking the most absorbable types of B12. A combination of Methylcobalamin and Adenosylcobalamin, according to the National Institute of Health, are the most absorbable and bioavailable supplemental forms of Vitamin B12. They are superior to formulations that are comprised of Cobalamin or Hydroxocobalamin.
Methylcobalamin is the recommended option since, like Hydroxocobalamin and Adenosylcobalamin, this version of B12 contains molecules that the human body is able to use. On the flipside, Cyanocobalamin takes a methyl group and forces our livers to dispose of the cyanide molecules in this synthetic form of Vitamin B12. Therefore, if your clients were to take the Methylcobalamin version, it would be ideal to supply them with a natural energy boost.
If you are having an issue with explaining all of this so that your senior clients understand, do tell them that it is more important that they take the vitamin as opposed to their body having a deficiency. No known adverse side effects are known about any of the forms of Vitamin B12. It is so much more important to help or avoid a deficiency of B12 or for your clients that follow a vegan diet to take a supplement. For those, Vegansafe™ is a highly-bioavailable and vegan-friendly option.
Bottom line is that any form of Vitamin B12 is better than none at all. Getting this point across is really showing that you believe that With Age Comes Respect.
