My Vitamin B-12 is 150 which my doctor says is too low. She wants to start me on Vit. B-12 shots. I want to avoid shots and take Bee Polen and Royal Jelly. How much of both products would give me the equivalent of 1,000 mcg of B-12 weekly?
It is very difficult to say exactly as each batch of bee pollen will contain different amounts due to the time of year, the flowers the bees visited and the geographic location. As a result, we don't have our bee pollen analysed for this.
I would recommend consuming a tablespoon of bee pollen daily along with a B12 supplement that is in sublingual form (meaning it dissolved under the tongue). This will ensure that you correct your B12 deficiency. Keep in mind that B12 is water soluble so if you over consume it, your body will excrete the excess through your urine.
