Krum, you're thinking of BS overload. Excesses of BS will make a person tired, cranky and often want to pinch the head off of the next @#$% that makes a "cute" comment about getting enough protien or how fish is a vegetable...Originally posted by Kurmudgeon
Tiredness factor? I thought that was due to the constant crap from many omnivores..... that sure makes me tired.
Yes supplementation does work as a general rule. But unfortunately not everyone supplements as they perhaps should, and not everybody eats perfectly all the time.Originally posted by Lothar M Kirsch
Pixelle: supplementation works as a rule. If you have one or two sources including supplementation and don´t suffer from pernicious anemia, I wouldn´t worry to much and skip regular checks.
It can also be an issue for ovo-lacto vegetarians. A vegetarian that eats substatial amounts of dairy products several times a day will probably be OK. But not all ovo-lacto vegetarians do that. The recommendation is 2.4 mcgs of B12 consumed in small amounts spread out over the day. In small amounts (less than 1 mcg) it's absorbed more efficiently.You wouldn't get a B12 deficiency being ovo-lacto, would you? I thought that was only an issue for vegans.
