Feelin’ a Little Funky? Get Yourself Some B12!

When I became a wannabe vegan, I started hearing and reading a lot about B12 deficiency and how it can be a concern for people who choose not to consume animal products.

To make sure that I didn’t run into any problems, I started doing a bit of research on ways I could get this wonder vitamin into my system so that I didn’t experience any of the deficiency symptoms like lethargy, distraction and crankiness.

The first product I tried was Healthy Habits B12 patches. Each patch contains 1000 mcg of Methylcobalamin B-12 and 400mcg Folic Acid. The first time I used one, I really liked it and noticed a big difference in my mood and overall energy. As I continued to use them, however, each patch worked differently. So sometimes I would feel different right away and other times I wouldn’t feel different at all.  There are 8 patches per pack, so it can be a bit expensive initially if you are trying to build up your B12 levels.

The second product I tried was Pure Vegan B12 Spray. Each spray contains 500 mcg of Methylcobalamin and there are 175 doses in the 1 oz. bottle. Since you are squirting the B12 directly into your mouth, the vitamin is absorbed much more quickly into your system. I love this! If I am feeling a bit funky or tired, all I have to do is spray some in my mouth and in a couple of minutes I feel great. The bonus is that I can easily carry it my bag and share it with anyone else who may need some too. It also lasts a long time which is bit easier on the pocketbook.

Have you tried these or other B12 supplements? I would love to hear your comments on the blog, Facebook or Twitter.

  1. I haven’t tried either of these supplements, but will. I was using B-12 capsules last year and got ridges in my toenails, which I was told may just because I was getting older – Yay!! – Uhg 😦 But since I’ve quit taking it, the ridges are going away. I know B-12 is important, so I think I’ll try the spray. Love your blog and your writing style. Thanks for sharing. Happy Health 🙂 Cynthia – veganish.org
