Does vitamin b-12 help my breasts/butt grow??

Does vitamin b-12 help my breasts/butt grow??

No.: Breast only grow if you gain weight and add fat. Your behind can be toned and look larger with exercise. Gaining weight makes that bigger too. But weight gain will also make everything else bigger too. Too much fat is unhealthy. Wear underwear that pads those areas. If you have an unattractive personality it does not matter how attractive your body is. So good, kind people are always attractive

What is the relationship between taking vitamin b-12 and the likelihood of getting blood clots?

What is the relationship between taking vitamin b-12 and the likelihood of getting blood clots?

Low or unrelated: Cyanocobalamin or vitamin B12 is important for normal erythrocyte formation (red blood cell). If b 12 is deficient, one gets pernicious anemia and the mean corpuscular volume (MCV) climbs > 100. Gastric bypass, gastric resection surgeries increase the risk of pernicious anemia. But as to increased risk for DVT or deep venous thrombosis ("blood clots") vitamin B12 palys little if any role.

Do vitamin b-12 shots work?

Do vitamin b-12 shots work?

It depends...: Work for what? If someone has B12 deficiency then B12 shots definitely "work" to treat the deficiency and resultant anemia/neurological symptoms. However, many who are not deficient get B12 shots for fatigue and other non-specific symptoms. While many people feel better after B12 shots, there has been little research to show if it actually helps. See http://www. Medscape. Com/viewarticle/585589.
