Dr. Oz: How To Increase Your Vitamin B12 Levels
- Increase the amount of protein you eat. Lean meat, beef, lamb, eggs, fish and chicken are great sources of vitamin B12.
- Eat more dairy products including cheese, milk and yogurt.
- Take vitamin B12 supplements, preferably sublingual vitamin B12 or drops because it is easier for your body to absorb.
- Drink cranberry juice or eat cranberries, because it increases the acid in your stomach, which boosts your rate of absorption of vitamin B12.
Signs of Anxiety Caused By Vitamin B12 Deficiency
Dr. Oz said a lack of vitamin B12 can cause anxiety and chronic worrying. How do you know if you are experiencing unusually highly levels of anxiety though? These are the signs of anxiety and chronic worrying to look for:
- Heart pounds in your chest
- Lungs feel tight / gasp for air
- Hands shake
- Skin tingles
- Chest aches

Dr. Oz said that it is like the sound of a pencil drumming on a desk. You not only hear it, but feel it too. The sound grows and becomes more prominent. It becomes increasingly irritating as the constant rhythm plays in your body. The feeling of panic can leave you gasping for air with a pounding feeling in your chest. It can also make you shake or cause your skin to tingle. Your chest starts to ache. You feel nauseous and your temperature rises. But there’s no cause at all – you did everything right and nothing wrong. Anxiety does not follow the rules and more people than ever are opening up about their anxiety. A lack of vitamin B12 could be the cause if you experience anything like this, so what can you do to improve your symptoms and find relief? Let’s take a look at Dr. Oz’s favorite sources of vitamin B12, including how cranberries and cranberry juice may actually help!
