Raster, what makes you certain that Amanda needs to take B12?
Of course there’s a correlation between Candida and vitamin B12, but there’s also a correlation between Candida and every other B vitamin, especially Biotin (B6). I know that B12 helps to increase the white blood cell count, but so does vitamin B6, C, A, D, zinc, garlic, and omega 3 fatty acids, as well as most other vitamins to one degree or another.
There’s a particular ratio of B vitamins in the human body at birth provided the newborn is a normal and healthy baby. If too little of one B vitamin is taken and too much of another, the ratio or balance is disturbed and can cause serious health problems.
This is why I never recommend just one particular B vitamin. It’s also why I am not in favor of multiple vitamins as they are always out of proportion with the B vitamin amounts. High doses of beneficial probiotics are the best and safest way to increase B vitamins. Taking probiotics and consuming organic Greek yogurt and/or kefir will build the flora in the intestines, fiber and other nutrients will feed them, and the flora will produce the B vitamins in the amounts that are needed by the body. The body is self-regulated for this type of function as long as we supply the correct nutrients.
