Is Japanese Mecobalamin injection effective?
Mecobalamin 500 mcg injections from Japan are used, primarily, in patients with vitamin B12 deficiency. But the ability to repair peripheral nerves’ axons also makes methylcobalamin effective for treating pain and peripheral neuropathy (Ming Zhang, Wenjuan Han et al. “Methylcobalamin: A Potential Vitamin of Pain Killer”. Neural Plasticity. Volume 2013. http://dx.doi.org/10.1155/2013/424651). Furthermore, clinical studies show that mecobalamin helps to treat neuropathies caused by diabetes (Sunil T.Pai MD. “Peripheral Neuropathy”. Integrative Medicine (Fourth Edition). 2018, Pages 120-132). Moreover, methylcobalamin is prescribed by specialists for treating dementia and improving semen quality, including increased sperm count, enhanced sperm motility and reduced sperm DNA damage (Steven F Werder. “Cobalamin deficiency, hyperhomocysteinemia, and dementia”. Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment. 2010; 6: 159–195; Saleem Ali Banihani. “Vitamin B12 and Semen Quality”. Biomolecules. 2017 Jun; 7(2): 42).
