Injectable Hydroxocobalamin is a form of Vitamin B12 that converts into Methylcobalamin once it is injected.
Hydroxocobalamin B12 has a longer half life than Cyanocobalamin which allows it to be used in the body longer. Another advantage of hydroxocobalamin over cyanocobalamin is that hydroxocobalamin can be used in pernicious anemic patients with optic neuropathy and tobacco amblyopia patients who are also vitamin B12-deficient.
Vitamin B12 injections are important for:
- Nerve Function
- Red Blood Cell Formation
