B12 & weight gain?

I gained a few pounds recently. I initially chalked it up to not exercising as regularly and as vigorously as I had been and the stress and slight overeating during the holidays. I was reading a post on another board and someone said they'd gained weight since they began taking a B12 supplement.

I started taking a B12 supplement about 6 weeks ago. My hair stylist recommended it to me to assist in hair growth. Well, I haven't noticed my hair growing any faster, but I have noticed a few extra pounds that aren't going away - even after I've begun to get back on the wagon with the diet and exercise.

Just wondering if there might be a link between the extra pounds and the B12. I'm going to stop with the B12 and see what happens.

Depending on how many capsule in the bottle and the quality of the B-12 in the bottle, your probably going to have to use 2 - 4 bottle before you see improvement with your hair.

I did a browser search of B-12, I didn't see anything about weight gain.

Re: B12 & weight gain?

Hi snogal, I was signing on to leave a message about a few things, but B12 being part of it. The weight gain and the B12? I think that may be one of my problems; it is possible anyway. I started taking B12 around Christmas (also stopped smoking January 2nd and everybody wants to add it up to that... I know a little better, blah, blah). Before I ramble on any more, it seems like most of mine is water weight. How about you?
