Any way to cure the intrinsic factor in the digestion system for the absorption of vitamin B12 complex?

Any way to cure the intrinsic factor in the digestion system for the absorption of vitamin B12 complex?

What vitamins at whole foods are good for the mind; I s ginkgo still good?

Many good choices: B complex is important for mental function, as well as minerals like magnesium, so a good multivitamin is a good place to start. Gingko is an herb, not a vitamin. It can help but i find lesser-known herbs like bacopa, vinpocetine & huperzine often help even more. Other nutrients like fish oil, phosphtidylserine, phosphatidylcholine &acetyl-l-carnitine also help. See www.Raysahelian.Com/memory.Html. ...Read more

Is it reckless to administer Vitamin K by IV if it can be given s/c or IM? Why?

Is it reckless to administer Vitamin K by IV if it can be given s/c or IM? Why?

Yes. IV bad choice.: The oral route and IV route are equally effective at correcting excessive anticoagulation. The IV route carries the risk of anaphylaxis.

Outside of vitamin d3 (not d), which I have found to be low for many people, or other specific deficiencies, possibly omega 3's from phytoplankton, best eat minimally processed foods from nature, avoid center isles with processed foods. ...Read more
