B vits are in everyday fruit and veg, nuts, pulses etc do not think supplements are needed, excess to what is req'ed is flushed away by the body.

b12 found in yeast and animal products.

What's all this advertising about '5 a day' that we see nowadays?.

Personally I tend to get very confused as to what the human body requires and wants as a daily tonic, depending of course by what expert's report I read.

Off now for my lunch of various veg plus meat etc etc. I wonder what life giving additives thats going to provide, and not a vitamin tablet in sight?.

A TV interview with a Uni medic professor advised not to stock up on vitB supplements without first consulting your GP....as any additional intake of VitB may conflict with any prescribed medication

"excess to what is req'ed is flushed away by the body."

I think you are mixing up Vitamin B with Vitamin C.

C is not stored, but I'm pretty sure that B is stored, I think in the liver.

When I was given some medication containing Vit B I was warned against certain foods with high Vit B levels (tuna, liver, pulses and the like).

only fat based vits are stored eg A,D, E

But sometimes the body can no longer take the required vitamins from the food.

I have to have a B12 jab in the arm every 3 months as I can no longer absorb that vitamin through the gut. This was something that the Doctor picked up on 7 years ago when I was taking an HGV medical. The early symptoms are a tremor when holding my arm out stretched. Apparently if it's not picked up early it then leads to anaemia and early dementia as the link states.

Food for thought.

It's a lot commoner than you might think, a simple blood test will identify any problems like that.
