Veggie Shots

April 29, 2008


When I was a kid, I had a friend whose little sister has to get vitamin shots (B12 shots). When I asked why, they told me it was “because she wouldn’t eat her vegetables.” The poor little girl was in absolute terror when “shot time” rolled around. She screamed and cried before the appointment, and screamed and cried after. She was an expert tantrum thrower, IMHO.

That was along time ago. I remember thinking “Boy, I hate my vegetables, but I’m going to eat them!” I hate shots, and eating veggies was worth avoiding them. (Well, kind of. I STILL won’t eat tomatoes or peppers, but I do like onions now). 😀

I’ve come across a lot of health blogs via Entrecards. I pay close attention because, although I do now eat my vegetables, I seriously doubt I get enough B12 and Folic acid in my system. I am always so tired and I get sick frequently. I’ve seen a website that has a pill you can buy so you can get your sublingual B12 here. What a wonderful idea! Why haven’t they offered this stuff in pill form?! My poor friend suffered all those years over shots, when pills could have done it! Does anyone take these kinds of pills? Here’s what the website says:

“Sublingual” means “under the tongue.” You simply place a TriVita Sublingual B-12, B-6 & Folic Acid tablet under your tongue and allow it to dissolve completely. TriVita’s original patented Sublingual B-12, B-6 & Folic Acid was specially formulated to speed these essential B vitamins directly into your bloodstream!

Regular oral B-12 tablets have to take a long trip through your complex digestive system before being absorbed by your body. And, your ability to absorb B vitamins from food and regular oral pills decreases as you age.

With the TriVita original patented formula, you don’t have to worry about your B-12 going through a digestive system obstacle course – or the pain and expense of a B-12 injection. These essential nutrients go directly into your bloodstream, where they start working right away!

How about you? I’ve tried the regular (WalMart brand) B vitamin pills and I hate them! I seriously doubt their efficacy, too. I’d love to hear from some of you Entrecard health nuts. Check out the website and tell me what you think! <
