New Article: B12 an Essential Supplement for Vegans

January 4, 2010

“Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.” ~ Redd Foxx

True, we are all gonna die, but I am playing my cards so I still have the upper hand when I’m older.  I’d rather get taken out by a bus than cancer. Or any disease that degenerates  my mental faculties for that matter.  My hope is that at least I will be able to play a round without having someone wheel me over to the table, or have to ask  someone else hold my hand for me in the game of life. 

 The thing is, even if you are already a sexy vegan, and eat a wide range of fresh organic produce,  if you don’t take your B-12, you may find youself lacking in energy, depressed (which is definitely not sexy), and loosing mental faculties way before your time.  I had my own personal experience with B12 deficiency after being a vegan for almost ten years and then transitioning into a diet consisting of mostly raw foods. To say the least, it was not fun.  I started to notice I felt tired a lot, my feet and hands were tingling,  and my memory was horrible.  Let’s not get into the fact that I was pretty sure I was actually loosing my mind! It was a scary experience, but luckily the core issue was remedied  in time.

Supplementation of this vitamin is not optional if you are a vegan, it is an absolute necessity. Apparently even though B12 is found in animal products, many meat eaters are deficient as well. David Wolfe, one of the leading authorites on raw food,  claims that Spirulina, which is a type of blue green algae, is the best food source of B12. More on Spirulina later…
