Vitamin B12 -- The Jury Is Still Out
  • There is no Vitamin B12 in fruits or vegetables - NOT entirely true, since seaweed is considered vegetables. Vitamin B12 is found in some seaweed, processed as Spirulina (blue-green algae) or Marine Plankton.

  • There is controversy over this, of course. Many people say that the only foods which contain Vitamin B12 are animal-derived foods. This also is untrue.

    Vitamin B12 is a microbe -- a bacteria -- which is produced by microorganisms. Vitamin B12 is the only vitamin that contains a trace element -- cobalt -- which gives this vitamin its chemical name, cobalamin, which is at the center of its molecular structure. Humans and all vertebrates require cobalt, although it is assimilated only in the form of Vitamin B12.

    If you want to take Vitamin B12, be sure you know how much you need for your body size and don't overdose on it. Get more information from a homeopath or from your medical doctor.
  • If you are in the habit of eating unwashed veggies, these may contain small amounts of B12, as it is produced by microbes found in soil.

    It is possible to get Vitamin B12 from vegetarian sources, such as yeast and seaweed. Initially, it was thought that these foods contain a type of B12 that cannot be digested by the human body. However, new research indicates that humans can, in fact, digest and absorb Vitamin B12 found in spirulina and marine plankton.are ei

  • Recent research has also found out that the absorption of B12 from dairy and meat is much poorer than it was thought to be. As a result, a large part of the population is suffering from a B12 deficiency, even though they include plenty of animal-based foods in their diet.
  • Since most of us have busy or stressed lifetstyles, we may not be getting perfect well-balanced meals therefor missing out on some important vitamins, minerals trace elements and enzymes. Many vegans are concerned about the B12 issue.

    There are many sublingual supplements on the market you can take to ensure you are getting enough B12. I suggest sublingual, as the body does not absorb it well enough via the stomach and liver. With sublingual, it goes right into the bloodstream.
  • Vitamin B12 is also found in liver, soy milk and soy beans (is controversial in other nutrition facts), eggs, clams, salmon, crab, milk, dairy products, and more. If your child is prone to allergies, do consult a homeopathic physician or naturopathic nutritionist. It is very important not to take vitamins of synthetic or that have made artificially made.


  • Compared to commercially processed food, Vitamin B12 found via whole natural foods is healthier and safer.


Aloe Vera contains Vitamin B12. It is a great source of this important vitamin because it contains other vitamins and many other ingredients such as minerals, enzymes, sugars, natural cleansers and more. Aloe Vera would be considered the best source for most nutrients that the body needs because it is a rich cocktail of all these elements whose combined action and balance produce a more powerful effect together than would be expected from the individual nutrients. Use freshly harvested aloe leaves or high quality aloe drink with stabilized aloe vera gel as its principal ingredient.
