Cyanocobalamin is another name for the B chain vitamin, vitamin B12 (also called cobalamin due to the fact that it is a chief component that makes up cobalt). It can be dissolved in water and once it is consumed it is stored in the liver and aids in the transfer of food into energy.
Of all of the vitamins in the body, this is considered the strongest. The liver is not the only place that vitamin B12 is stored though; it can also be found in the kidneys and various other tissues. Most water soluble nutrients and vitamins are usually quickly expelled through the urinary tract, making vitamin B12 fairly unique in this regard. Like other B-chain vitamins, vitamin B12 is not actually its own vitamin but rather, it is a group comprised of compounds known as corrinoids.

VITAMIN B12 SIDE EFFECTS
Vitamin B12 deficiency is a serious concern. It happens when the body is unable to absorb enough Vitamin B12 into the body. Those at risk are people who have a low meat diet, or identify as vegetarian or vegan, since the highest natural sources are located in meats. Without enough Vitamin B12 in the body, it will not be able to correctly produce new blood, the nervous system will be completely unprotected, and the destruction of healthy red blood cells will occur with greater frequency. This can result in a host of negative side effects such as headache, nausea, general weakness, constipation, weight loss, minor gastrointestinal discomfort, severe nervous system side effects, neurological conditions, psychological problems, and severe menstrual discomfort.
