What Happens If You Don T Get Enough Vitamin B
As a vegan, how much vitamin b-12 do I need to take and what we will happen to me if i don't get enough?
Get plenty of it: If you have become a vegan out of concern for factory-farmed animals, you have my admiration and congratulations. You also need to know that the health benefits are massively exaggerated by many of its proponents. If you spend even a short time b12-deficient, you will get permanent brain and spinal cord damage. Your personal physician can guide you in selecting the optimal dose; you can't overdose. ...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
B vitamins: Most b vitamins are in foods. Some foods containing more b1, b2, b3 are fruits and vegetables. Things like B12 are mostly only in animal products but this does include eggs. ...Read more
For some of them: Most of the b vitamins must be replenished regularly, since any excess is excreted in the urine. But some, if taken in excess can cause problems: b3—3000 mg nicotinamide or 1500 mg nicotinic acid/day can cause nausea, vomiting, signs of liver toxicity. B6— more than 1000 mg/day is associated with peripheral sensory neuropathy. B9 excess can mask B12 deficiency. B12 excess may cause rash. ...Read more
B12 injection.: Assuming you’re referring to B12...you’re unable to get an injection without a prescription, but you can buy B12 supplementation over the counter. The sublingual preparation would most closely mimic the injection as far as rapidity of absorption. ...Read more
Is taking vitamin b orally the same as a shot? N why do people get injections for?N if I wanted2who do I go to my pcp?
For most people: There are some people who don't have the ability to absorb B12 through the gut, causing anemia. This condition is rare. Most people absorb it just fine, making injections unnecessary. Unless you've been diagnosed with pernicious anemia you shouldn't have a problem taking oral b12. ...Read more

As often as 3x/week: B vitamins are water soluble and circulate through the system, getting taken up by cells and/or excreted via the kidneys fairly quickly. Anywhere from 1-3x/week could be tolerated well, depending on need. ...Read more
I'm 23 years old. Currently taking vitamin D3 (1000ui), vitamin b complex, and panax ginseng. What's the ailu dosage of vit d3? I don't get much sun.
Vitamin D level: Knowing your vitamin d level would be helpful. If you are deficient (and depending how deficient), you will need supplementation so that you can get your level back to normal. If your vitamin d level is normal, then you may want a maintenance dose. D3 is cholecalciferol, a standard form that is taken orally. D2 is ergocalciferol, if taken is in a large 50k international unit (iu) dose once weekly. ...Read more
At bed time I get goosebumps everywhere and am very cold. Dr checked thyroid ,b vitamins normal. History pots and ehlers danlos. What else can cause?
Muscle contraction: Goose bumps are caused by the contraction of small smooth muscles in the skin, arrector pili. The main stimulus for goose bumps is the body trying to retain heat so it goes with your sense of cold. It could be linked to Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia syndrome as these skin smooth muscle contractions are triggered by stimulation of the autonomic nervous system, the same system affected by POTS. ...Read more

Will taking vitamin b complex and zinc help to get rid of a fissured tongue? If not what will? A lot say its benign but i would like to get rid of it!
Probably not but...: While western medicine considers fissured tongues to be benign, chinese medicine considers it a sign of imbalances in your GI tract. Seeing a chinese medical practitioner may be helpful.

Been taking vitamin b complex (125 ) for about 3 months now notice tingling , numbness @ fingers. Is there something a can take to get rid of B6 fast?
Probably not from B6: Extensive evidence shows that it's unusual to have adverse effects from b6 unless one takes 600 mg a day or more, though there are rare reports of adverse effects with doses as low as 200 mg/day. 125 mg is not known to cause neuropathy. Your symptoms are probably not due to b6. B6 does not accumulate in the body so if you stop it you will eliminate it quickly. See a doc to assess the true cause. ...Read more
I get frequent headaches with blurry vision. I also feel very low on energy and almost get a dizzy feeling. My vitamin B and D levels came low. ?
What's your question: You may be describing migraines w/scotoma. Low energy may be related to frequent headaches which may also cause dizzy feeling. There are many B vitamins so need to be more specific as to which is low. Good news is that it's very easy to replenish vitamin B & D (no need for shots). But many other reasons for low energy so best to see your Family Doc for evaluation. ...Read more
