Rethinking & Clarifying the Vitamin B12 Issue, by Dr. Virginia Vetrano
Rethinking & Clarifying the Vitamin B12 Issue, by Dr. Virginia Vetrano: There is no such thing as a B12 deficiency, even in 100% raw vegan food eaters. They do not have to eat dirt, animal products, or take pills to secure coenzymes of B12. Bacteria in the intestinal tract make it for us, and the metabolically usable and necessary forms of coenzyme B12 are contained in unprocessed, fresh natural plant foods, particularly in nuts and seeds. The real problem in so-called B12 deficiency is a failure of digestion and absorption of foods, rather than a deficiency of the vitamin itself.
