The levels of B12 and iron in my blood are currently low. I was quite shocked by some of the ingredients in the iron tablets I was prescribed by my GP which included liquid paraffin, sodium laurel sulphate and gelatin. I decided not to get those! I was also prescribed 6 injections of artificially created vitamin B12 over 2 weeks, which seems a bit extreme and also decided against that suggestion! What a strange health system...
I am looking for alternatives and did find some supplements in the local health food shop that feel much kinder. They are developed from bacteria rather than artificially created. One is in a spray form so it can enter the bloodstream more efficiently. I am aware that B12 can be an issue for vegans and particularly those following a mainly raw diet. I have previously not taken yeast to avoid candida, though I might try adding some yeast to my morning smoothie. I know that Open recommends not overly washing organic veg as some of the vitamin may remain in the soil.
I wonder if anyone has any further thoughts or suggestions?
PS. I also acknowledge the opportunity to explore what might be causing an imbalance in the first place!
