Is there evidence yet for treatment and therapies of MS using very large oral doses of vitamin B 12 methyl cobalamin ?
There is some evidence that people with conditions like MS and Parkinson's tend to have lower levels of some B vitamins including B12. In general we recommend that people keep their B12 and vitamin D levels in the high normal range. I haven't seen anything about super high B12 levels being beneficial. We tend to recommend hydroxy B12 instead of methyl B12. We have seen too many negative reactions from the methyly version and virtually none from the hydroxy form. This has to do with certain enzyme pathways in the brain that respond great to the hydroxy form and respond poorly to methyl B12. For your methylation needs, your body can readily convert hydroxy to methy B12 as needed. Also don't forget glutathione support that is vital for autoimmune regulation.
