    Hello ! I have been vegan for 5 years. I never made sure that I consumed adequate levels of b12 - so I became deficient. Over the past year and a half I have been trying to replenish my levels of b12. However, it has some very strange effects on my mind. Positive: my mind is more agile at...

    A weird experience with B12, wonder if anyone has input? So I've been Lacto Ovo for 19, strict. I've taken B12 for most of it, though I was fairly lax the first few years. I had a blood test 6 or 7 years ago that showed my B12 and iron fine. I'm aware that blood testing for B12 is far from...
  3. Transitioning to Vegan
    Hello, So I've been vegetarian for 4/5 years now started when I was 12 but never even thought about b12 and iron and all that. I'm 16 (going on 17) and my brother brought up b12 and iron and I was like oh my gosh am I getting those? And I've officially went vegan a few days ago, and now the...

    I'm new here (although longtime lurker) so sorry in advance if this isn't clear, in the proper place, etc.! I got some bloodwork done recently to check on iron levels (I have chronically low ferritin and take prescription iron), and they decided to test B12 while they were at it. I've always...

    I started eating mostly vegan seven months ago, after listening to Dr. Greger, with the occasional Saturday morning breakfast out that doesn't have vegan options, so I may have pancakes. Here's my dilemma: I expected my blood values to improve after seven months of eating vegan, instead my...

    Heya guys, I recently got interested in supplementing with b12, because I've been vegan for 7 years and just in case, I don't feel any sympthoms or anything, but I figured might as well, so I went to the local pharmacy and what they had was injectable ones with hydroxocobalamin and the dosage...

    Vitamins can be a bit of a minefield, so I have researched why it's important, what the symptons of deficiency are and where you can get it. Read here to find out more! http://www.collatedstyle.com/sources-of-b12.html

    Hi, I expect this has probably been asked 100000000 times before but i keep finding conflicting information so I'm asking again! I'm virtually vegan, only eat dairy maybe once or twice a week at the moment, working my way to full vegan once I move out of my parents' house and go to uni in...

    Recently scientists discovered that a very widespread microorganism, Thaumarcheota, can produce vitamin B12. Possibly it might be present in the human gut and produce B12 there. For more see: A new B12 source is discovered – the missing link for vegans? Jaan

    I've never enjoyed supplements because our body doesn't fully absorb them so I've switched from a B12 supplement to fresh frozen algae, which has completely transformed my life. There are numerous other benefits in taking algae besides getting your full dose of all the B vitamins that vegans...

    I've been taking those fancy, expensive vegan (brand name: Rainbow?) vitamins, and they're making me feel nauseated, even when I take them with food, or just after eating. This happens in the morning, and I don't think I have had problems at night, taking them before or during dinner. BUT, I...
