Effiesmom, I'd hate to throw cold water on your idea, but taking just one of the B complex vitamins can develop an inbalance of the other B complex. I'm always bothered when I see on B vitamin tablets the wording "Balanced B Complex". The only thing that's balanced is they're all the same amount - generally 50mg.

The best way I can explain it is to have you understand the difference in making a cake using your regular recipe & then deciding it would be easier to make if you simply used 1 cup of everything - flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, salt, baking powder. Not much of a cake, hey?

It's the same with the nutrients our body needs. That's why even if you picked a couple of the healthiest foods & ate only them, you'd soon show deficiencies symptoms. If you're interested in the B complex vitamins, I'd suggest getting some tasty nutritional yeast flakes (some taste terrible!) with added B12.

The sublingual B12 pills were initially developed for those people who have digestive disorders & lacked the necessary factors to absorb B12 from their diet. If you'd rather have tablets than supplemental food, I'd suggest buying the ones that are labelled Stress Tabs. They are more in line with the amounts of B complex plus vitamin C, that the body needs but at higher doses.

> Wow! Thanks for looking that up! Another way to at least feel better and feel like you are doing something to help yourself is to try sublingual Vitamin B12 (sublingual means administered under the tongue.) It's NOT regular B12; the package will actually say "sublingual." I couldn't find it at the regular drug store-type chains, so I found it at my local GNC store. I'm suggesting sublingual instead of vitamin tablets because sublingual administration is supposed to be as effective as getting the B12 shot but cheaper and more pleasant. FYI - B12 is used for nervous system regeneration, for added stamina, for aiding in proper blood formation, and often used to help handle stress. I also have been drinking at least 64 oz. of water each day to help me feel like I am flushing the toxins from my body. (Do you think they used the word 'flush' BEFORE toilets were invented? LOLOL) Good luck to you all!
