Varies: The b vitamins include thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, (folic acid) b6, vb12, biotin and pantothenic acid. Some foods are especially good sources of just one b vitamin, while other foods contain several of the b's. Luckily, b vits are widely distributed throughout the food supply, so if you're eating a varied, balanced diet that includes foods from all food groups, you're most likely getting what you need. ...Read more

Clearing B vitamins this week through NAET. Which foods do NOT contain any B vitamin or derrivitive?? Help, I'm hungry, lol

Greetings dr's.May you please kindly help me with list of foods that have vitamin B12 or with more vitamin b-12? Thanks
All animal foods:
All meats, dairy ; eggs have b12; no vegetarian foods have it unless fortified. Best sources are clams ; beef liver (only have liver if organic). Many have difficulty absorbing B12 ; are thus low even if they eat foods rich in b12; they need injections or sublingual methylcobalamin.

If RDA's for B-vitamins are achieved with whole food, is it possible to still have high homocysteine, and if so, does it indicate gut dysbiosis?
Yes: There are some known reasons for high homocysteine, including genetics, folate deficiency (some don't list this as a B), and who-knows-why. As a lab specialist, I'd urge you not to pay much attention to this number. There's a rare genetic syndrome in which it's way-high, but most of us are not impressed that a mild elevation's a risk factor for anything. "Gut dysbiosis" is dubious stuff. Cheers. ...Read more

I can't eat even the lightly spicy food, it makes the whole mouth a burner. I have tried candid mouth paint and vitamin b tabs and listerine mouthwash?
Burning mouth: This can follow a mild coxsackie virus infection or a cause may never be found. The remedies you have tried will not help and probably nothing else will either. Read up on it online and do not be optimistic about finding a specific treatment other than an anesthetic. You may get lucky and find something. Good luck ...Read more
Yes: There have been a couple of deaths from the cyanide but these were extreme cases. The danger is to your wallet, your dignity, and your possibly neglecting other interventions. This is the old, utterly cynical laetrile fraud in which stuff from apricot pits was renamed "vitamin b-17" -- no law prevents me from selling pinecones as "vitamin 18", talking conspiracy, and making fantastic claims. ...Read more
Often Money&Placebo: Apologize for the negativity, but b vitamin is not 1 but a group of vitamins, b1, b2, b3, b5, b6, b7, B9 & B12 (others turned to be variations of this list). Look up b vitamins on http://en. Wikipedia. Org for overview. Like all vitamins, they are widely available in most foods; why we have not maintained typically just 1 gene needed for a single protein enzyme to make them out of whatever we eat. ...Read more

Potential benefits of up to 10 mg of folate (folic acid) ; 20 mg of biotin. High B12 is safe. ...Read more

B Vitamins: All B vitamins are water soluble and are therefore not stored up in the body and rapidly eliminated, most often by the kidney. Some B vitamins go through a metabolic process in the liver before being excreted by the kidney. It is very difficult to overdose on B vitamins because the body takes what it needs and excretes the rest rather quickly. ...Read more

This is a scam: There is no such vitamin. An extract of apricot pits, sold as laetrile, was the most lucrative of all phony cancer remedies and despite the whole business having gone to the supreme court, it's still being peddled among "spiritual" and "socially conservative" people. Over 100 people made over a million dollars each off desperate cancer patients. Stay away from these criminals. ...Read more
