How effective are Meticobal (Vitamin B12) 500 mcg tablets from Japan?
Japanese tablets Meticobal (Vitamin B12) 500 mcg are effective in treating vitamin B12 deficiency and iron deficiency anemia. In addition, methylcobalamin is prescribed by specialists to improve the symptoms of peripheral and diabetic neuropathies, as it improves the sensitivity of peripheral nerves and treats weakness in the lower extremities (Amrita Sil, Hrishikesh Kumar et al. A randomized, open labeled study comparing the serum levels of cobalamin after three doses of 500 mcg vs. a single dose methylcobalamin of 1500 mcg in patients with peripheral neuropathy. Korean Journal of Pain, 2018 Jul; 31 (3): 183–190). A number of studies even demonstrate the possible effect of methylcobalamin for the treatment of children with autism and patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Who should use Meticobal (Vitamin B12) 500 mcg tablets from Japan?
Meticobal tablets (vitamin B12) 500 mcg from Japan are suitable for those who need to get a high dose of vitamin B12, but for some reason injection is undesirable or impossible. 1 Meticobal tablet contains the same amount of active ingredient as 1 ampoule for intravenous or intramuscular administration. Unlike ampoules, tablets must be taken every day to compensate the losses of the oral method of use. Thus, Japanese tablets of vitamin B12 Meticobal 500 mcg allow you to affect the body as effectively as the course of injections. On average, a course of treatment should last from 4 to 12 weeks.
