Q.Can a vitamin B12 deficiency cause high blood pressure?
A.No, it is highly unlikely that a deficiency of vitamin B12 is causing your high blood pressure problems. High blood pressure is more likely to be due to a high salt diet, high alcohol consumption, stress, or a lifestyle low in exercise.
Q.Can anyone fully explain the condition vitamin B12 deficiency and its effects?
A.Common early symptoms are tiredness, a decreased mental work capacity, weakened concentration and memory, and irritability and depression. Sleep disturbances may occur, because B12 may be involved in the regulation of the sleep wake cycle by the pineal gland (through melatonin). B12 deficiency can also cause symptoms of mania, psychosis, fatigue, memory impairment, irritability, depression and personality changes.
Q.What is the difference in the amount of micrograms in vitamin B12? How will the amount of micrograms will be effective?
A.It depends a little on your age. But you don’t really need more than the 1000 micrograms. The difference between 1000 and 2000 is just how much is in them, by weight.
Q.What is the long term affect of getting the vitamin B12 shots?
I have low thyroid and my doctor suggested getting the B12 shots to boost my energy, yet what are the affects of that on my organs in the future?
A.None that I know of. If you need them they’re helpful.?
Q.What happens if you overdose in Vitamin B12?
A.B12, is a water-soluble enzyme. Like Vitamin C, excess amounts of it is rapidly filtered out by the kidneys and excreted in the urine (which will be VERY yellow to orange looking while it’s doing so) If your kidneys are working even 50% of what they should be, you cannot overdose on vitamin B12. You literally piss it all away….so worst case scenario, you’re just wasting your money.
Q.How many mg of vitamin B12 would provide a good amount of energy?
A.Vitamin B12 doesn’t provide “energy” per say. It plays a role in cell metabolism which provides cellular energy, and it also affects DNA synthesis and regulation, and fatty acid synthesis. This cellular energy is needed for a healthy brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. Dietary guidelines say you should get. 2 to 3 µg (micrograms) per day, which would be 100% of your daily value.
Q.What is Vitamin B12 used for in our body?
A.Vitamin B12 covers a variety of similar compounds called cobalamins. They are involved in DNA synthesis so deficiencies lead to insufficient DNA synthesis and cell maturation – particularly red blood cells. This is why vitamin B12 deficiencies cause anaemia (megaloblastic anaemia). The nuclei of the erythroblasts (‘parent’ cells of red blood cells) take longer to mature but the cytoplasm continues to grow so the cells produced are disproportional and larger than normal red blood cells. B12 deficiencies can also affect other rapidly growing cells in the body such as cells lining the gastrointestinal tract which can lead to gastroenteritis and related problems.
Q.What is the difference between folic acid and B12?
A.Folic acid/folate is needed by women of childbearing age to prevent neural tube defects such as spina bifida, 400micrograms/day is needed. B12 is important for the intrinsic factor which is part of the digestive system and is needed for the absorption of nutrients. All B vitamins are good for energy and stress.
Q.What is the best Vitamin B12 pill? I have Vitamin B12 Deficiency?
A.If you have laboratory documented B12 deficiency you want to take a very high dose B12 supplement (and, your doc needs to be working with you to determine WHY you are B12 deficient). You should be taking at least 1000 micrograms (mcg) of B12. Usually B12 in stores is available as cyanocobalamin. Many nutritionally trained health care professionals recommend the active form of B12 for supplementation called methylcobalamin.
