DID YOU KNOW why we often recommend adenosyl/hydroxycobalamin as a supplemental vitamin B12 source? You may have a genetic predisposition that does not allow you to utilize vitamin B12 optimally from food. You may also lack energy or take medication that depresses mitochondrial function (our cells energy producer). Methylcobalamin, which is the more commonly recommended source of supplemental vitamin B12, has a different purpose, which is to optimize methylation. Aside from genetic screening, how would you know if you need methylcobalamin or adenosyl/hydroxycobalamin? Of course, looking at your serum B12 and ferritin levels can tell us if you need B12. Specifically for methylcobalamin, a homocysteine blood test is the ideal snapshot to see how well you are methylating and utilizing vitamin B12, folate, and vitamin B6. For adenosyl/hydroxycobalamin, a methylmalonic acid (MMA) test indicates if there is a mitochondrial deficiency.

What Happened to the Flu? And Musings From Star-Crossed Nutritionists
Steve and Bonnie: Joyously, things are starting to open up in some parts of the US and the world. Chicago and New York City announced that they are opening up in July. Fans are attending sporting events. Disney World is fully open. Europe is welcoming fully vaccinated Americans.
Unfortunately, other parts of the world are still tragically in the throes of the pandemic (i.e. India). Some nations ar
