Vitamin B12 is the largest and most complex of all the vitamins. It is unique among vitamins in that it contains a metal ion, cobalt.82

Vitamin B12 is a safe, reliable and inexpensive vitamin. It is important for maintaining a healthy nervous system and DNA production.83

Methylcobalamin and 5-deoxyadenosyl COBALAMIN are the forms of vitamin B12 used in the human body. Cobalamin's role is to make the protective sheath that coats your nerve cells. It's sort of like INSULATION on electric wires. If the sheath is damaged because you don't have enough vitamin B12 cobalamin, you start getting the equivalent of STATIC on the line. Really bad static can interfere with your mental function - so much that people think you're senile.82

Observational studies have found as many as 30% of patients hospitalized for depression to be deficient in vitamin B12. A recent cross-sectional study of 700 community-living physically disabled women over the age of 65 found that vitamin B12 deficient individuals were TWICE as likely to be severely depressed as non-deficient individuals.82

Unlike most other vitamins, B12 is stored in substantial amounts, mainly in the liver, until it is needed by the body. Usually, the body's stores of this vitamin would take about 3 to 5 years to exhaust.84

While regular supplements such as your multi-vitamin or b-complex vitamins might have plenty of B12, this particular vitamin is poorly absorbed by the stomach and the intestine. While it will still do SOME good, swallowing vitamin B12 in pill form is NOT optimal. On the other hand, when a SUBLINGUAL B12 is placed Under the tongue and allowed to dissolve, the B12 enters the blood stream directly through the blood vessels on the lining under the tongue. This is a MUCH more EFFECTIVE way to raise B12 levels in the body.85

SUMMARY: Vitamin B12 will help heal and balance the frayed nerves that are present as a result of prolonged inflammation. It will also help to protect your nerve cells from any future complications.
