People love getting B-12 shots because they notice a difference in how they feel – increased energy, decreased anxiety, better sleep, etc. If you experience these benefits, does it really matter what kind of B-12 shot you are getting? The answer is yes!
The Types of B-12
Did you know that there are 3 forms of Vitamin B-12? Cobalamin, or B-12, comes as cyanocobalamin, hydroxycobalamin, and methylcobalamin. Many places that offer B-12 shots only offer a low potency cyanocobalamin shot, the most common commercially available form of B-12. It is the least expensive form, which is why it is most commonly used. However, both cyanocobalamin and hydroxylcobalamin are “in-active” forms of B-12. Methylcobalamin is the active form of B-12 and therefore it is better absorbed and retained in higher amounts within your tissues. We use only methylcobalamin and patients report noticing more energy and a better response to methylcobalamin than the other forms of vitamin B-12. This is just one reason we have the best B-12 in Phoenix!
