Benefits Of Vitamin B12

Posted by

I am a vegetarian, who tries to get all the needed nutrients from food. Because I am a weight lifting senior citizen, I believe, that some extra help in the form of supplements  is needed. Just now I am using these:

  • Plant protein powder (Vegan Protein Blend by Star Nutrition)
  • Green powder (Total Nutri-Greens by Myprotein)
  • Creatine powder (Creatine Monohydrate by Mass)
  • Whey protein powder (Double Chocolate Whey by Puls)
  • Magnesium tablets (Mg by Pirkka)
  • Vegan multivitamin tablets (Vegaani by Pirkka)
  • Omega-3 Fish Oil (by Lysi)
  • Vitamin B12 tablets (B12 Strong by Pirkka)
