Cyanocobalamin is a chemically synthesized form of vitamin B12 - a vitamin that has a role in a wide range of metabolic functions in the human body, from being involved in DNA synthesis, to participating in the metabolism of fatty and amino acids, production of red blood cells, synthesis of myelin and cellular energy production.
The drug is used to treat and prevent vitamin B12 deficiency and related metabolic disorders. Deficiency is reportedly more prevalent in wealthier countries, among the elderly, and within the vegetarian/vegan populations (due to a lack of animal source foods that contain the vitamin).
The primary alternatives to cyanocobalamin are other synthetic as well as naturally obtained forms of vitamin B12, including methylcobalamin, cyanocobalamin, deoxyadenosyl-cobalamin, and hydroxy-cobalamin. Of the abovementioned, cyanocobalamin occupies the largest share of vitamin B12 supply.
Cyanocobalamin manufacturers produce standalone formulations with the drug as well as use it in combination formulations along with other vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, etc. Cyanocobalamin suppliers market it primarily in the form of solutions for subcutaneous or intramuscular injection, however, it is also available as oral capsules, tablets, nasal sprays, and others. The largest manufacturers and suppliers of cyanocobalamin are well-known pharmaceutical companies Luitpold Pharmaceuticals, Endo International, Bristol-Meyers Squibb, Sanofi-Aventis, Teva, Merck, Mylan, and Pfizer.
Cyanocobalamin suppliers and distributors market both generic and trade name formulations of the drug. Buyers are advised that online sellers may attempt to market fraudulent versions of the generic drug, whereas Pipeline Pharma, through its pre-auditing and quality control procedures ensures that only verified cyanocobalamin manufacturers and wholesalers enter our online marketplace, offering you a risk-free B2B pharmaceutical sales platform.
Due to the varying differences in available formulations as well as high manufacturing company count, market prices cyanocobalamin drugs and dietary supplements vary widely depending on the concentration of it in the formulation, other ingredients that are contained in the formulation as well as supplier and manufacturer pricing.
The retail prices per 10ml of 500mcg cyanocobalamin injectable solution fall into an approximate range of 5,00 EUR to 10,00 EUR, whereas 30 capsules of cyanocobalamin can cost anywhere from 3.00 EUR to 15.00 EUR.
