Absolutely: First of all our soils are depleted and no longer contain the same nutrients that were available to us as little as 30 yr ago. To further complicate matters we are a "processed food" society. The more you process a food the more nutrients you deplete. Then there is the issue of over cooking the processed foods. We are eating essentially "dead food". This makes supplementation critical for health. ...Read more
Too low: Unless you are under 5 feet tall and thin as a rail, 800 calories sounds too low to me.

What do you advise if I want to start taking vitamin B12 supplements and will that solve the issue?
SoWhat'sTheProblem??: IF the issue is a documented vitamin B12 deficiency. Then the issue is whether to take orally or by intramuscular shots or intra-nasally. That depends on if the stomach and intestines can allow absorption into the blood or not. That's usually a function of age (older: less likely; or other serious GI problems). Unless you've ingested cyanide, I don't think there is any other serious consideration ...Read more

Vitamins: A good multivitamin is a good idea. It's an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed.

Dose more important than a long list. Young adult or when having symptoms. ...Read more
No unless too many: B vitamins have a wide margin of safety and are generally non-toxic. One exception is vitamin b6. High doses of b6 can cause neuropathy, but this is rare in those taking less than 500 mg a day and there is no need to take such large amounts! However, b vitamins can increase energy and taking high doses later in the day could be stimulating and might prevent sleep. ...Read more

Major exams nearing and I have lost my appetite. I'm taking multi vitamin supplements. I'm losing weight drastically. I just can't eat much?
Relax...: The stress from major exams will induce a "fight or flight" response in your body which will cause significant inhibition of stomach and upper-intestinal action to the point where digestion slows down or stops leading to a perceived lack of appetite. My recommendation is to relax, take deep breaths, and take things one step at a time. Try eating multiple small meals throughout the day. ...Read more
I'm a lifelong vegan, was told that I should be taking vitamin B12 supplements; I can't get this from anything plant based. But what dosage, please?
1000 mcg methylcob.:
A common dosage is 1000 mcg. I advise the methylcobalamin form if you can find it. B12 is usually absorbed better when taken in a sublingual form. See http://bit. Ly/1607tg3

I did find some reports of anxiety experienced by some after taking vit. D which is apparently a sign of magnesium deficiency remedied with magnesium. It's possible for someone to be allergic to fillers & binders in supplements so if it makes you sleepy try a different form. ...Read more
