B12 and Evening Primrose Oil

All you clever people who have helped me ...  can you give me your advice 

I have a friend  who takes 1,000 mg Evening Primrose  and I have been 

telling her of the benefits of taking sublingual B12  and B Complex together

can you please tell me if you think it wise to take both B12 and B Complex with

her evening primrose ... 🌹

Hi madge1979 as the B vitamins are water soluble I usually take those together and the EPO being fat soluble I normally take it with my vitamin D3 and fish oil with the fattiest meal I eat in the day, usually my tea. This is what makes sense to me anyway but I will be watching with interest for other's thoughts

ooooo  thank you for your quick response Pastille...🌹

so you think that it is a safe combination ... OEP   B12 and B Complex  ?? 

she was worried she would have to stop OEP  if she started the B12 and 

B complex

I wouldn't have thought so. I think you will find a lot of people on this site take all three and more

Hi Madge,

I can't see any issue taking both, but I wanted to suggest starflower oil from borage, is better than EPO. More expensive, but a lower dose is more potent, so it should cost less.

thank you Mel ...  though ,  I'm not sure what Starflower Oil from Borage is ..

I thought they were two different things ... ?
