No need to worry: There is absolutely no need to be concerned about high B12 levels. This simply means you have more B12 in your blood than average but this is not a problem. There is no known toxicity from B12 ; no need or reason to stop taking vitamins. However, i'm not a big fan of "energy drinks" as they tend to be high in sugars or, even worse, artificial sweeteners. Consider herbs like ashwagandha ; rhodiola. ...Read more

I want to add vitamin B12 to my daily regimen but I take Prilosec everyday for gerd. What kind of dose should I take for energy/heart health?

Vitamin B12: You can take oral vitamin B12 of 1, 000mcg daily. It's not necessarily helpful for energy or heart health, especially if you are not B12 deficient. Prilosec when used for a very long time can cause B12 deficiency.

Im 21 years old what benefits will taking vitamin B12 pills and fish oil pills do for me? I need more energy. What supplements can I take? Thanks.

Living Life: I know of no physician that would recommend vitamins or supplements to a healthy 21 yo male. Energy comes from being active, getting good sleep unencumbered by alcohol or other drugs. The most accurate advice would also to be living a life that includes very little sugars and regular cardiovascular exercise. One should not assume that pills will give you good health. Good health activities do. ...Read more
