Today Show: Vitamin B12 Benefits & Bruce Springsteen


Today Show: Kathie Lee & Hoda

The Today Show co-hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb opened up the show with a few eye opening studies on Vitamin B12 Benefits and how music can immediately change your mood. Check out the information below.

Hoda Vitamin B12 Energy Booster

A few weeks ago, Hoda went to the doctor after she was feeling tired. The doctor told her she was Vitamin B-12 deficient and needed to take a supplement. She used a dropper and felt great in a matter of days. Then Kathie Lee tried it and was also blown away by her increase in energy.

Experts say you should be tested first, if you are deficient – which 10-30% are as they grow older – taking drops may be a good fit. Vitamin B-12 Benefits include an increase in energy and can make symptoms such as shaking and general tiredness disappear. The vitamin is animal based and primarily found in fish, liver, and dairy products such as cottage cheese and yogurt.

The most important thing: once your baseline has been reached you should stop taking it. While it’s a water soluble vitamin, meaning it will be flushed out; it can still interfere with other vitamins. Kathie Lee, who hadn’t been tested, tried some more on the set — even after getting these words of wisdom. Nevertheless, both co-hosts gave the supplement rave reviews, so it might be worth checking out.

Today Show: Mood Changing Music

Studies show that music is one of the few things (other than alcohol) that can change your mood immediately. I’m not sure we needed a study for this one, but it was nevertheless interesting to see which specific songs were chosen for certain moods.

In general, Hoda likes Amy Grant (“Somewhere Down the Road” or “The Christmas Collection”), while Kathie Lee prefers the Carpenters (“Carpenters” or “Carpenters Gold”) for a little rest and relaxation. If you want to clean your house or purse you should listen to “Taking Care of Business” by Bachman-Turner Overdrive on the album “Bachman-Turner Overdrive II”.

Want to get out of bad mood? Listen to Bruce Springsteen (“Greatest Hits” or “The Essential Bruce Springsteen”). Kathie Lee isn’t a fan and notes you’re either a big fan or you aren’t. Hoda, on the other hand, is a big fan of Bruce. What are your favorite songs for getting work done or simply relaxing after a long day at work? Leave your choices in the comments section below.
