    Do I need to be using potassium when I take only Adenosylcobalamin/Dibencozide for the day? I have Source naturals brand that sure seems like it has very Methylcobalamin type results, rather than the subdued effects i'm used to from Adeno B12.

    I think the potassium is if you are taking methylfolate which can lower potassium.

    Adeno B12 doesn't drive methylation directly, therefore it should not put extra burden on potassium usage.
    Of course if your body says otherwise, you probably need it.

    Personally I've never had issues with K and both Adeno/Methyl B12.

    cheers

    Adeno B12 gave me a huge magnesium deficiency. Not sure why but I'm still struggling to raise my levels. Can't take adeno at all (sadly since it made me feel much better) since my mg levels plummet from only one pill.

    I'm curious how you know your magnesium levels plummet after taking AD-B12? Did you have a blood test or...?

    When taking the normal MethylB12 it is converted in the body to Adeno B12 by methionine before being used for energy in mitochondria.
    Taking a 10mg Adeno in place of the usual 5mg or 1mg Mb12 is going to increase B12 to fire up mito energy.

    Unfortunately, Magnesium and B12 have to be kept in balance, increasing either without the other can cause altered symptom status of some individuals.

    @sregan - So does the single arrow like the one pointing from Zn toward Fe mean that Zn interferes with Fe?

    No, I can tell when they are up or down. Very obvious symptoms that go away within hours of taking Mg.
