I hear in USA that the rich and famous have B12 injections which helps them to boost their energy!
Apparently vitamin B12 tablets are not that good because it gets destroyed in the stomach.
Don't forget a pint of the black stuff

There's hardly any iron in guiness - it's a myth!
"You'd need to drink three pints of Guinness to provide the same amount of iron as a single egg yolk (1.1mg), and alcohol is not good for babies. A pint of Guinness contains 0.3mg of iron, less than three per cent of daily adult needs. Put another way, you'd need to drink 15 pints of Guinness to get the same amount of iron as two Weetabix. " (taken from the daily mail so it must be true!)Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1222684/Dont-believe-say--Guinness-isnt-good-you.html#ixzz16wxSL5pb
But it's also in the Times: "Guinness contains no more iron than most other beers, and that's precious little - a mere 0.3 milligrams a pint, compared with 1.1 milligrams in an egg and a whopping 4.2 milligrams in a bowl of Weetabix. "
I also read ages ago that there is way more iron in 100g of dried apricots (3.4g) than in a pint of guiness so that's a no brainer for me since I hate guiness!!!
Thanks for that I will buy some dried apricots - I used to eat them once but I got abit fed up with them.
I would like to start back on the Origanic Weetabix.
I don't really agree that it is a myth eating late at night you will put on weight. Also it's a myth
that vitamin C will stop you getting the flu and cold.
I must say it is great reading.
I would rather drink 15 pints of guinness than eat two weetabixs or an egg
Spinach is an interesting one. I'm not an expert so I can only go on what I read but the way I understand it, it's got iron in just like any other green leafy vegetable, but it's not the best source of iron because it also contains oxalic acid which is an iron absorption inhibitor. See here.
Bottom line, spinach is good for you cos it's a green leafy vegetable, but there are better sources of iron. I've got a load of chick peas in my salad and I'm making a big chilli this evening, so that should sort me out.
