Lesson 9: The truth about Vitamin B-12.

Add Your Review

Click the play button to listen to this week's audio:



Do fermented soy products, amesake rice, or umeboshi prunes provide significant B12? What about the soil on unwashed veggies? Many foods reported as 'good B-12 sources' are tested with methods that measure B-12 analogues (which can cause B12 deficiency because they block the action of active B-12). Those methods give no accurate measure of the true B-12 content, nor whether the foods are dangerous from their analogue content. Stop being misled. Get definitive answers in this lesson.

Marlene Watson-Tara:
Thanks Trevor, great interview, Michael is fantastic and presents in such a user friendly way. Much appreciated.
 
Maria:
very informative and well presented.

Thank You!!
 
Magda:
Great source of information on the subject! I\'ve learned I\'ve been over doing it and advising my clients incorrectly! I\'m going to lower my intake of this molecule. One question:is the the strain of yeast in nutritional yeast ok for people with gout? In other words, is it uric acid producing?
 
Yvonne:
What was the name of the vitamins that had B12 made by a doctor that was mentioned in the interview. Could not hear the name of the doctor or the name of the vitamins. Excellent presentation!
 
Maria C. Miranda:
Excellent,love it.Thank you
 
Erica Martell:
Can you still get B12 from cows if they no longer eat grass, but grain? Seems like supplementation is the key here. Love like Dr. Klaper. He is a wonderful resource.
 
John Taylor:
Wife and I have been vegan since 2000.
Took 9 years without supplements to show up B12 deficiency.
Found some brands of B12 supplements completely ineffective.
Deficiency showed up even with large overdosing of these supplements.
 
Tricia:
An excellent interview! I enjoyed Dr. Klaper and found his advice down to earth and easily understood. Thank you.
 
Dorita:
About the cows and other animals getting Vitamin B12 from the grass, etc. that they eat: they'll only have B12 if there is cobalt in the soil which is then taken up into the grass and thereafter into their flesh.
 
Pat Volk:
Excellent quality audio. Great, credible information. Loved it.
 
Fran:
If you're taking enough B12, can you still become anemic due to other deficiencies?
 
Veronika Mohor:
Informative and useful content.
 
Mike Maybury:
I don't often listen to videos, but was quite impressed by the whole of your talk and reasoning.
I live in the United Kingdom and remember the early vegans in 1950. Many were deficient in B12 within a few years because they did not supplement.
Take supplements!
 
Abby:
Dr. Klaper is always great and informative.
 
Aniruddha:
