Greetings from icliniq.

I understand your concern. You can take vitamin b12 tablets with vitamin C and iron tablets . It is completely safe .

At this age , you absolutely do not require vitamin K and D because these are enough in your body and in high quantity these can be toxic as well . Also my advice to you would also be include more of these vitamins in your diet than to reply on external sources . I can suggest you a few food items from which you will get enough of the vitamins .

  1. Vitamin A - all green leafy vegetables , beans
  2. Vitamin D - milk , sun basking (preferably morning sunlight is best for skin - everyday exposure should be 30-45 mins)
  3. Vitamin C - all citrus fruits like lemon , orange , grapes , goose berries.
  4. Vitamin b12 - all dairy products along with meat , chicken , eggs ( if you are a non vegetarian).
  5. There are mechanisms in your body already forming vitamin K
  6. Iron - jaggery , fruits like apple , all green vegetables
