B12 and Fish Oil

A friends friend (whose hair use to be thin and not very healthy) has been taking B12 and Fish Oil in a liquid form and it has drastically improved the condition of her hair. I already take Fish Oil capsule and a multi-vitamin with B12 in it but was thinking of taking some liquid B12 on top of that.

I don't want to take too much B12 though, online it says we should take about 2/4 mcg a day but that seems somewhat low to me. Anyone have an opinion?

Re: B12 and Fish Oil

are you a vegetarian or vegan? if your vegan, esp, you should take some sort of vit b12 to avoid any deficiencies. and yes, any supplement in liquid form is def better digested and absorbed that those tablets or capsules.

oral b12 supplement cant be completely absorbed anyway when your taking a huge dose all at once because b12 needs to bind to an instrinct factor in the stomach, and theres only going to be a certain amount of them produced and if you take lots and lots of b12 well above the limit, the rest that hasnt bound to the instrinct factor won't be absorbed.
