Default Vitamin B12 for sad and depressive feelings...

Just a new member here...Thought maybe I can share what helped me and migt help some of the members here.

I was feeling sad and a little down(don't know if you can classify that as depression) but then I took vitamin B12 an after some time the sad/down feeling went away.

Another one I felt maybe I should mention is tryptophan. The body can convert tryptophan (an amino acid) into Niacin and Serotonin. I think most of us know the positve impact of serotonin on hapy feelings. Maye some members need to eat food high in tryptophan?

did u try b-complex?
i tried b-complex and had a weird feeling(maybe similar to your awful come down...i dont know)

recommended daily intake for vitamin b12 is 400 mcg...so check how much mcg is in yours... and follow the instructions....i was taking the one to dissolve under your tongue...and i basically chewed it last time and i think it didnt have much of an effect. so not only the vitamin but also proper way of taking it has an effect i guess....
