Dr Oz: B12 Recipes & Sources
When Dr Oz’s medical team took samples of the audience, one audience member, Christine, had the most B12 Deficiency out of everyone. Christine stated that she had symptoms such as fatigue and exhaustion and she was forgetful. She also had mood swings, plus tingling in the fingers and toes. The good news; it can be reversible.
You may be vitamin B12 deficient, but on today’s show, Dr Oz showed you how to increase your intake with supplements, plus, Kate Geagen, Registered Dietician, shows you some delicious recipes you can make at home.

Dr Oz: Vitamin B12 Shots
-Shots- Christine, an audience member, stated that her sisters take the shots and seem to feel better with them. Shots are more available than ever before, however, you will need a prescription and they are more expensive. This option may be best for those who are deficient because with the shot, the B12 goes straight to the blood system. For more information on the shot, check out www.doctoroz.com.
