Lesson 9: The truth about Vitamin B-12.

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.

|Thanks Trevor, great interview, Michael is fantastic and presents in such a user friendly way. Much appreciated.|
| very informative and well presented.
|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?|
|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|
|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.|
| 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.
|An excellent interview! I enjoyed Dr. Klaper and found his advice down to earth and easily understood. Thank you.|
|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.|
|Excellent quality audio. Great, credible information. Loved it.|
|If you're taking enough B12, can you still become anemic due to other deficiencies?|
|Informative and useful content.|
| 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.
|Dr. Klaper is always great and informative.|
|Thank You :)|
|Great call! Nice and clear, great questions and answers.|
| Excellent lesson/interview -- good info.|
