Source Naturals - MethylCobalamin Fast Melt 5 mg - 60 Tablets
Source Naturals MethylCobalamin Fast Melt improves energy and nerve health. Methylcobalamin, an active coenzyme form of vitamin B-12, is essential for cell growth and replication. It is more concentrated than other forms of B-12 in the cerebrospinal fluid where it can be used by the central nervous system. It donates methyl groups to the myelin sheath that insulates certain nerve fibers. It may also play a role in maintaining a healthy sleep-wake cycle, as well as normal nerve function.
B-12 is necessary to form healthy red blood cells that carry oxygen to our muscles and tissues to support strength and energy. It also supports the synthesis of DNA needed for the formation of new red blood cells and other types of cells.
Maintaining Normal Levels of Homocysteine
Methylcobalamin acts as a cofactor in the conversion of homocysteine into methionine. This helps maintain normal levels of homocysteine in the blood stream. Maintaining normal levels of homocysteine in the blood can support cardiovascular health and normal functioning of the endothelial cells that line the walls of the arteries.
Vitamin B-12 can support the body’s production of SAMe by helping to recycle used SAMe. When SAMe is used up, homocysteine is generated. B-12 helps turn this homocysteine back into methionine. The cycle renews itself and methionine is used to synthesize new SAMe, an important methyl group donor that supports mood and cognitive function.
Absorption of Vitamin B-12
Dietary sources of B-12 include meat, fish, eggs and dairy products. B-12 deficiencies are usually the result of poor absorption rather than poor dietary intake. Absorption of food-bound vitamin B-12 requires adequate stomach acid and with aging, the body’s ability to produce
enough stomach acid for this process may be reduced. Obtaining B-12 from supplements or fortified foods is advised for those over 50 years of age. In addition, vitamin B-12 is the only nutrient that is not present in significant amounts in plant foods, and supplements are advised for those people who do not consume animal products.
Methylcobalamin is essential for healthy brain cells and nerve tissue. It supports nerve function by maintaining the myelin sheath surrounding nerve cells. Healthy myelin sheaths provide electrical insulation around the nerve tissues and speed up electronic impulses essential to proper functioning and message delivery of stimuli though the nervous system.

Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
