Anybody take B-12?

The guy at GNC told me to start with this to help me lose a couple pounds. He said it gives you energy! Anybody else take it?

  • I take B-12 pills but a coworker does the B-12 shots!! She said she doesn't feel any different with the shots because it could take up to 6 weeks to feel a difference.. But I got my B-12 pills from Walmart and I feel great!!! I do have extra energy, but not the jittery, feeling like crap energy and it's supposed to speed up your metabolism which is great! I recommend them highly!

  • I take B-12. I also got mine from Wal-Mart and they really do help with your metabolism. They're not that expensive either.

  • I did take them for awhile...that and Niacin. I stopped taking the Niacin because it made me break out in hives,lol. Other than that though..the two combined really gave me a lot of energy. My mom still takes it daily.

  • I did but it made my heart pound too much so I quit. It affected me like too much caffeine does - not jittery, just a pounding heart.

  • When losing weight you want to take B-12 and Vitamin D supplements. I take both.
