Last Day to Register for B12 Webinar

B12_recommendation_webinar_promotional_IGMy next webinar on my latest vitamin B12 recommendations is happening June 26 at 2pm ET, and registration closes tomorrow, June 19. 

I’ll start out with a discussion of the symptoms of B12 deficiency and then explain how I arrived at what I consider the optimal dose of vitamin B12 supplements in children, adults, the elderly, and during pregnancy. I’ll clarify why cyanocobalamin (not methylcobalamin) is the best type of vitamin B12 supplement and address the data suggesting B12 supplements cause acne, bone fractures, and lung cancer. I’ll also cover the healthiest food sources of B12 for those who don’t want to take supplements. And of course, I’ll be answering your questions during the Q&A portion. I hope you’ll join me!

Update: Thank you to everyone who attended the webinar. The digital download of the videos from the webinar is now available on

  1. Really looking forward to the B12 webinar particularly having Dr. Greger address the data suggesting B12 supplements cause acne, bone fractures, and lung cancer.

    I would suggest having a list of B12 brands because there are so few.

    1. Personally, one puts to the test one single drop of methylcobalamine every day. The Flavourless Liquid B12 energizer from Yoga Nutrition, stored into the fridge. The bottle of 60mL should last more than three years with only one drop a day.

      With 20 drops per mL and 1000mcg of methylocobalamine per mL gives one 50mcg per day.

      Below what Dr Greger actually recommends for methylcobalamine, but we’ll see…

      1. For nearly the same price, I have the choice between a two months bottle of cyanocobalamin pills at the local pharmacy and a three years bottle of liquid methylcobalamin on the internet.

        1. ab,

          Yes, there aren’t very many cyanocobalamin choices.

          But I have had Methyl B12 fail twice and became symptomatic.

          So, it is a choice between Cyano or food sources or a combination of sources.

          Either way, I have become symptomatic twice when I tried to do it with Methyl B12.

          Plus, it isn’t shelf-stable so the next 10 days, I am worried because we are having a heatwave and it is every single day of the next 10 days and my air conditioners are the newer models and those never really cooled like the old models (which lasted 30 years and still cooled) The same brands never really kept up with the summer heat.

          1. Deb, what do you mean that you became symptomatic ? It surely is best to keep the methylcobalamin into the fridge for longer preservation.

            My point is that the idea that “cyanocobalamin is cheaper” is erroneous. It is damned expensive in the pharmacies where I live. Also, it is only sold in the form of high dose pills, whereas one supposedly only needs less than 10mcg a day.

            That’s why a liquid form is handy and allows one to take a dose of 50mcg with one drop, which is still at least five times more than needed.

              1. I guess it is better that there is no B12 supplemented food where I live because it is supplemented with cyanure containing cyanocobalamin…. In other countries, those foods have been pushed to market by vegan lobbies who only care for animals and not human health…

          2. Deb, you are escaping from the issue all the time and your idol may be wrong…

            No one knows the effects of cyanure in cyanocobalamin, though cyanure is a potent poison that is highly toxic. That may be why smokers who are already exposed to cyanure from smoking are more at risks of lung cancers when taking cyanocobalamin.

            Plus, cyanocobalamin is not ideally bioavailable as a part of it is excreted before being metabolized so you have to take more than needed, exposing the body to cyanure without really being able to finely control the doses.
