Methylated B12 Shortage & Recommendation

We are experiencing great difficulty acquiring methylated cobalamin (commonly called vitamin B12) for our patients due to a global shortage. At this time it is unclear what the cause is of this shortage, however with the dramatic increase in the use of cobalt for electric vehicle batteries, with 40 pounds of cobalt required for each battery, this may be a potential diversion of the cobalt away from the manufacture of cobalamin (B12) for injectable vitamin. Dr. Michelle Parsons had stocked up on this essential medicine for our patients some time ago and requested that our main distributor do the same, however, we are no longer able to refresh our supplies.

Many of you who have the genetic variation of MTHFR and Vitamin B12 deficiency depend on this medication and we are working diligently attempting to locate alternate sources. Though Dr. Michelle Parsons recommends the injection form of methylated vitamin B12 for ideal absorption, at this time, Dr. Parsons is recommending the oral form of methylated B12 as a back up. Our regular distributor, Wellevate, is also backordered on oral methylated B12, so Renove has partnered with Thorne, which currently DOES have a supply. Here is the link to thorne's methylated B12 product

For our weight loss patients, we will continue to provide lipotropic injections, but without the additional vitamin B12, until supplies are restored.

We will keep all of you who rely on vitamin B12 for you health updated!
