B12 Explained: Should Vegans Supplement?

1750 ratings | 30531 views
Vitamin b12 is made by neither animals nor plants, but by microbes. A whole foods plant based diet can help prevent, treat and reverse many of our leading causes of death. But, because of current agricultural practices, it's difficult to obtain vitamin b12 naturally any more. Before we started destroying the soil and washing things, we used to get it from things like unwashed vegetables and well water. Non-human animals still get some from there and some from eating their own faeces. It can also be found in dead animals, because they get some from the soil and farmers inject them with it. However, since B12 can be destroyed by some forms of heating, meat, dairy and eggs aren't necessarily a reliable source. Both Vegans and non-Vegans can become deficient if they don't supplement. But it's fortified into many everyday products like cereals, so most people don't have to think about it. Our bodies can re-absorb it from our intestine, so it can take years for a deficiency to occur. As a Vegan, you can get it from fortified foods like dairy free milks, yeast flakes or marmite. You can also get it from tablets, sprays and injections. Since credible doctors like Michael Greger recommend supplementing b12 as a Vegan, the simplest option is to take a weekly b12 supplement providing at least 2500 micrograms. It's easy to dismiss supplementation as unhealthy and unnatural, but in the world we live in, this kind of purity is illogical and unhealthy in itself. Clothing is a supplement, just as a toothbrush is, but they do us good, so we shouldn't refuse them.

Yes vegan should take supplements to survive from animal products . Without supplements you put your health in the high risk like pernicious anemia . Unfortunately yes most of animal products nowadays are contaminated .i need to know how many tbs of marmite should I take to cover my b12 a day
A.K.M Art (2 years ago)
I take a multivitamin and it has b12 in it. I also have a nondairy milk like coconut, rice, almond or cashew milk in my smoothies every morning! I will have to try nutritional yeast. Does anyone have any other suggestions? :)
j vall (1 year ago)
yeah, ik that lol thank you
Trish (1 year ago)
+j vallejo Oh OK. Well b12 comes from bacteria in the soil, but as we wash our vegetables so well, we don't really get it from a vegetable source. There is b12 present in animal products, and highest amount would be in the liver of an animal as that is where all animals, humans included, store b12. Because of the depletion of nutrients in soil required to create the bacteria though, even animals are often needing b12 injection/supplements nowadays. All vegans should definitely supplement b12, and from my research, to safely get enough I personally would recommend a supplement and not just relying on fortified foods. Non vegan people also get b12 deficient though, and people with gut issues, celiacs etc are most susceptible as absorption is affected.
j vall (1 year ago)
I'm saying foods that have b12 had b12 added.
Trish (1 year ago)
+j vallejo No they don't. Some soy or other plant based milk have b12 added and most nutritional/savoury yeast does though. Tempeh and Nori do not naturally containa b12 we can absorb and neither do mushrooms though some people think they do.
j vall (1 year ago)

So it is okay to take cyanocobalamim? I read a lot of articles which said not to take cyanocobalamin, but rather methocobalamin (I think that's what it's called) because the first one contains cyanide..
Robyn (2 years ago)
Take a sublingual methylcobalamin. Dr. Greggor said cyancobalamin but every other doctor/source says methylcobalamin. Cyancobalamin is a cheaper version of b12 and the body has to convert it to methylcobalamin before you can properly absorb it in your body.

Can you take from spirulina enough B12???
lok (2 years ago)
I gotta say, I'm a little confused. FullyRawChristina said that you did not have to supplement in her B12 video, and this one says you do. I don't know who to believe and its the only thing holding me back from being vegan. Please help
N. E (1 year ago)
Tanya Green Supplement. they don't harm you and its nearly impossible to get to much. When on a raw diet, you definitely don't get enough b12. I can give you reliable scientific studies that you should take b12, yet non that says it's OK to forgo it. Just supplement for the sake of your brain.
fff fff (2 years ago)
i'm sorry but why would you listen to fullyrawkristina over doctors???
Prince Fancybum (2 years ago)
It's fortified in many foods, so you don't have to supplement, however to be sure you get enough b12 then supplement it. Supps are very cheap and readily available so don't let it hold you back from going cruelty free
If it's literally the only thing keeping you from going vegan, better safe than sorry, so go ahead and supplement. Talk to a doctor if you're unsure:)

how mach do u need per day?

Marissa Perez (2 years ago)
USA recommends 2.4 micrograms/day. I read we could use up 3 micrograms/day from stored B12 at http://www.veganhealth.org/b12/dig ,so those 1000 or whatever microgram pills are really over doing it, but toxicity is rare and excess is pissed out. That website I think says 600-900 micrograms isn't bad. This vid says take once a week.
Thank you for actually explaining it simply!

You are a breathe of fresh air. So many of us vegans are promoting their form of veganism and denigrating all the rest. Vegan is Vegan!
GaryOakIsMine (2 years ago)
Is Bob's Red Mill Nutritional Yeast a valid absorbable substitute, or is it a B-12 analogue? B-12 analogues are not well absorbed by the body, aren't colbalamine(?) and can cause deficiency. I have been using nutritional yeast for quite a while, is it viable? I am slightly on edge now... Thank you for the wonderful videos, keep up the good work! Cheers, mate! :)
Tabitha McCoy (2 years ago)
My significant other doesn't want me going vegan because he says, "If you go vegan, you're gonna have to get half your nutrients from pills! Do you want to live the rest of your life getting your nutrition from supplemets?" Thoughts?
*sigh* tell him to do research on veganism first before deciding to be a philosopher lol

This is literally the only supplement you should take, and if you eat enough b12 fortified foods then even this pill isn't necessary. So.. really weak and ignorant comment from your husband.

I eat marmite with gluten free toast and dairy free margerine. I guess we are all looking for a 'youth serum' but I honestly feel my best when I eat lean meat ( occasionally throughout the week, lots of fresh veg and no dairy or gluten or mass quantities of sugar) plus daily exercise. I dont smoke or drink because I like how I feel when I take care of myself etc. This week I am preparing myself to eat liver and onions as it has alot of B12 in it. I personally think we all find different ways of growing and nurturing ourselves since we leave our Mothers lap. Eating and drinking sensibly for me does not mean purely eating one specific thing....I feel it is important to eat a bit of everything that is good for us meat included ( specially lean meat)
Lu Lu (2 years ago)
If you ate a bit of marmite each day would that be enough B12 ? Thanks for your insightful video !
Marissa Perez (2 years ago)
My marmite says it has 10% of the recommended amount in 1/4 teaspoon. If the rec amount a day is 2.4 micrograms, then that's .24 a tsp. But if you multiply .24 by 12 because that's how many tsp in a tablespoon, it's 2.88 micrograms. So that is over 5he rec and good, but the doc says absorption can be minimal of B12 consumed based on how well your intrinsic factor and what else you're eating, so maybe 2 Tablespoons a day....
Caitlyn French (2 years ago)
I'm 13 years old so I'm not sure how I'm supposed to get B12, what should I do?

+Caitlyn French buy some vitamin B12 supplements :), the cyanocobalamine form is the best (and most commonly found in tablets). It's not even expensive. Mine cost about 3 dollars per jar, which lasts me half a year.

Cono geLeto (2 years ago)
What about iron? I'm trying to go vegan but I'm anemic and I experienced some bad situation during my transition from an omnivorous diet to a vegetarian one, such as tachycardia, weakness and vertigo. Should I use iron supplements? Can I have enough iron from nutrition? If it is so, which food contain enough iron? Thank you so much for your videos, they're interesting and helpful.
Cono geLeto (2 years ago)
+Jenna Danielle Spencer thank you for your advice! I am trying to be as vegan as I can (i still live with my parents so sometimes it is difficult to be completely vegan but i'm working on it) anyway, I also take iron supplements so I'm not having problems
Jenna (2 years ago)
since you left this reply 3 months ago, I don't know if you're still having issues with iron but here's the thing, vegetarians often become anemic because dairy makes it so your body won't absorb the iron. So if you eat a pound of spinach a day, it's like you didn't eat any foods with iron. If you drop the dairy and eat plants that contain iron, you'll be fine :)

I take vitamins including b12. I took b12 when I was eating meat because I was low. now I'm a vegan my b12 is high so I take less once a week.
kara życiowa (2 years ago)
supposedly, the recommended daily amount of b12 you should take is 2.4 micrograms. so why do you need to take over 2,000 a week?
kara życiowa (2 years ago)
Ooh, I see. Thanks for the reply
The Vegan Activist (2 years ago)
+kara zyciowa Our bodies don't absorb it very well, so by taking loads, it ensures that we absorb enough.

I've never took any B-12 supplements or fortified products (like fortified plant milk, nutritional yeast, etc.). I've been vegan for about a year and a half now and just recently got blood tested, my B-12 results were perfect and I honestly don't understand why, but I'm still happy because meat-eaters kept arguing about it with me haha, so guess it's a good thing :) Amazing video by the way!

Karin Mabry (2 years ago)
Great video- but dang it, I thought methlcobalamin was the right one, not the other one. I need to go back to the research drawing board!
RebekahSing (2 years ago)
Brilliant. Just so logical
False Carnivores can't digest any nutrition full stop from meat because they're actually herbivores, so they can't at all acquire any B12 from any sources at all unless they took a vegan supplement through food sources or like spirulina things like that or a tablet once a week. I hate when a ignorant person asks where do you get you b12 from i ask where do you get yours? They are more deficient in b12 and so many other life giving nutrients for their cells than Vegans ever will be. Haha

They are also partners with Monsanto. In 2012 Dean Foods founded "Whitewave Foods" and Alpro is owned by this newly found company now. Still, Whitewave Foods and Dean Foods keep strong business relationship. We shouldn't fund them with our money.

Do multivitamins and supplements actually work? All I've heard is that there's no evidence they improve your health.
QuixoticQuaver (2 years ago)
+The Vegan Activist I see, thanks. Any recommendations for a chewable or liquid form of B12 we can get easily in the UK? Either in store or online? Also, are any other supplements for a person who eats lots of fruit and veg but not enough nuts and seeds?
The Vegan Activist (2 years ago)
Multivitamins are a bit pointless, but research has shown that if you give b12 supplements to b12 deficient people, they get better, so yes.

The soil nowadays doesn't have a reliable source of b12, also it's full of chemicals which wouldn't do you much good. Safest thing is supplements.
