Comments for this study:

BUNNY (8 months ago):

At one point, I think you stated that cyannocobalamin(CB) is another name for methylcobalamin (MB). But I.ve read that MB is produced naturally by the body if there are normal conditions, and CB is a synthetic form of vitamin B-12.
The distinction is important: On CB, one female had rapid, pounding heart beat w/chest pain and malaise. But on MB, no side effects. Important because she has pernicious anemia and needs B-12 supplementation.
Any other experiences like this?
