VITAMIN B12 ORALLY HALVES RECURRENT APTHOUS ULCERS

in an elegant new trial from Israel, a team at Ben Gurion University show that a 1 mg dose of vitamin B12 orally for 6 months halved the frequency, recurrence rate, duration and pain of aphthous ulcers (which had been a problem for a mean of 10 years); and doubled the cure rate – irrespective of the baseline vitamin B12 blood level. This is apparently a far higher response rate than with any other reported therapy.

But:

given the high cost of vitamin B12, and it’s  poor oral absorption rate,

and the fact that this condition reflects poor immunity and perhaps subclinical scurvy – including lowgrade cortisol insufficiency,

–   occasional tiny  subcutaneous self-injection at home of 1mg B12 – especially with an oral vitamin C + zinc + coQ10 multisupplement- may do the same job far more easily, much cheaper and with global multisystem protection.
