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 Supplements

-Supplements- you can take sublingual B12 or regular supplements. Dr Oz Vitamin B12 Recipes For sublingual B12, take 25 mcg under your tongue per day. For those that are deficient, take 1000 mcg per day.

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.

Dr Oz: B12 Boosting Parfait Recipe

1. Fortified foods (breakfast of champions.) If B12 is contained in a breakfast cereal, it will show up on the label. For milk and other naturally occurring foods, it does not show up on the label, however, it does contain B12.

1 C plain low-fat yogurt
1-2 tsp honey
1 cup B12-fortified breakfast cereal
1/2 C sliced berries

Dr Oz and Christine tried the parfait and gave it the thumbs up!

  1. I absolutely hate that video about the five foods never to eat. I never get through to the actual information because of their bloated egos and hype. I don’t want a sales pitch. If you subscribe to this information, please post it.
