Default b12 question

All I am taking is a b12 supplement and rla. I read that just taking a b12 supplement is not good because it interferes with other vitamins. Any suggestions?

Where did you read that? You have to be very very careful
reading about B12... or anything medical on the net.

That is why I post here, because some sites are very outdated, or just plain wrong. There are some vegan sites that say you don't need B12 because you absorb it in your intestine from bacteria there....and that has never been validated or proven.

Can you put a link to what you read, here for me to check out?

Default From what we know--

--and can be accessed in the B12 thread here, it would be more accurate to say that other supplements should not be taken with B12--not at the same time--as they may interfere with the absorption of the B12.

The cobalamin (B12) molecule is the largest molecule regularly used by the human body, so it is rather easy to interfere with its absorption in the digestive tract. Fiber can bind to it and complex it out, other nutrients compete with at the level of the intestines, etc. Fortunately, we do not need a huge amount of it for our everyday needs, but those who are looking to get more absorbed, especially from oral megadosing during which only 1-2% is likely to be passively absorbed beyond the stomach, should take it apart from anything else. Generally, I've held to at least one hour before consuming anything else, or minimally two hours after.

mrsD Im having trouble finding where I read about b12 and taking other supplements. I believe what I read was just opinions made by people, so Im not really worried about it. Ill continue to take just the b12 and rla and possibly add in the Benfotiamine.

Default The Neurotalk B12 thread--

--is located at the top of the peripheral neuropathy forum, although Mrs. D has also linked to it from the vitamin/supplement forum:
