Cyanacobalamin is the most commonly supplemented form of Vitamin B12. It is usually supplemented orally or as an intramuscular injection. However, nutritional problems, enzyme defects and pathological changes to tissues can all impact on the way in which cyanacobalamin is processed in the body. Oral forms of Vitamin B12 supplements have been shown to be as effective as injection forms, as the cobalamin is absorbed through the mucosal lining of the mouth. Evidence indicates that Vitamin B12 from methycobalamin is utilised more efficiently than any other form of Vitamin B12. Methycobalamin has also been shown to stay in tissue longer than other forms of Vitamin B12. Signs of Vitamin B12 deficiency include: numbness, a sensation of pins and needles, a burning sensation in the feet and sometimes diarrhoea.
