MECOMIN

The Trusted Oral Supplement for DIABETICS to
Help Regenerate Damaged Peripheral Nerves.


Live-well MECOMIN contains mecobalamin, the neurologically-active form of Vitamin B12 vital to the central and peripheral nervous system.

Mecobalamin protects against neurological (nerve) disease and has the ability to regenerate damaged nerves in people (especially diabetics) with peripheral nerve damage.

Diabetics and pre-diabetics are advised to supplement with mecobalamin as they are most prone to peripheral nerve damage. If nerve damage is left untreated for an extended period, diabetics face a higher risk of leg amputations.

Taking Live-well MECOMIN daily helps to also protect against the degeneration process of the nervous system and promote healthy nerves.

Facts on Diabetes & Nerve Damage:

  • 1 in 7 adult Malaysians is Diabetic
  • About 60-70% of people with diabetes have some form of nerve damage
  • The risk of a leg amputation is 27.7 times greater for a person with diabetes
  • 50% of all amputations occur in people with diabetes

Q1. Can I take Live-well MECOMIN if I am pregnant?

As with most supplements, it is always advisable to seek the advice of your doctor before consuming them.

Q2. What is the difference between mecobalamin (active form of vitamin B12) and regular vitamin B12 (cyanobalamin)?

Mecobalamin is the active form of Vitamin B12, while cyanocobalamin is a non-active form of Vitamin B12. When we take cyanocobalamin, our body needs to convert it into mecobalamin. However, when we take mecobalamin, the liver is able to skip the conversion process as it is already orally active.
