What is Cyanocobalamin?  Cyanocobalamin is a manufactured form of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient meaning that it cannot be made by the body but is required for life.

Cyanocobalamin Chemistry  Vitamin B12 is the “generic descriptor” name for any vitamers of vitamin B12. Animals, including humans, can convert cyanocobalamin to any one of the active vitamin B12 compounds.

Cyanocobalamin is one of the most widely manufactured vitamers in the vitamin B
12 family (the family of chemicals that function as B12 when put into the body), because cyanocobalamin is the most air-stable of the B12 forms. It is the easiest to crystallize and therefore easiest to purify after it is produced by bacterial fermentation. It can be obtained as dark red crystals or as an amorphous red powder. Cyanocobalamin is hygroscopic in the anhydrous form, and sparingly soluble in water (1:80).

Production of Cyanocobalamin  Cyanocobalamin is commercially prepared by bacterial fermentation. Fermentation by a variety of microorganisms yields a mixture of methylcobalamin, hydroxocobalamin, and adenosylcobalamin. These compounds are converted to cyanocobalamin by addition of potassium cyanide in the presence of sodium nitrite and heat. Historically, the physiological form was initially thought to be cyanocobalamin. This was because hydroxocobalamin produced by bacteria was changed to cyanocobalamin during purification in activated charcoal columns after separation from the bacterial cultures.
