Supplement consumptions become more and more common, as it gains popularity, it might be good to stop and dedicate a moment of thought. The whole idea behind supplements is to provide one with missing nutrients or boosting their amounts when it’s hard to achieve by regular nutrition plans and habits. When there’s a lack of B12 due to absorption problems, there are cases in which it’s worth increasing the dose and by that also increasing the amount of the absorbed vitamin. Yet in other cases (of not being able to absorb at all for example), increasing doses won’t change the outcome.
For example, I try to engage into my day-to-day diet as much as possible of the following foods:
Cooked eggs, salmon, tuna, natural yogurt, milk and dairy products such as light cheese. Few of them together, make great sources of B12.
Try to embrace a more holistic approach when it comes to external consumption of nutrients, as many of them already exist in your food and drinks, some are easy to achieve and others definitely require supplements consumption.
