Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin. 1000 mcg of the active version of B12 with cherry flavor. Often, B12 is obtained in the form of cyanocobalamin which the body must first convert to methylcobalamin. With methylcobalamin this conversion is avoided and the vitamin is better utilized.
Synthetic vs natural:
While methylcobalamin contains a methyl group, cyanocobalamin contains a cyanide molecule. Cyanocobalamin is a synthetic form of vitamin B12 found only in supplements, while methylcobalamin is a naturally occurring form that you can get through either food sources or supplements.

I have struggled with exhaustion and fatigue for as long as I can remember. At times worse than others. B12 has given me the biggest kick. I wish I had know about it before!

I take B12 from Vitaviva daily. It is easy to take and even tastes good. It simply melts on the tongue. When someone like me has an autoimmune disease, it is important to take supplements on a daily basis as I don't get my needs covered at all through my diet - even though I eat healthy and have always been very aware of the nutrients I get.
