animal source of dietary B12


B-12 has nothing to do with animals--it's derived rather from algal/bacterial sources.

From "Simply Nutrition": "There is research to show that edible forms of green and purple algae do actually contain bioavailable B12 or true vitamin B12. The research from Japan found purple laver (an algae) contained 5 types of biologically active vitamin B12 compounds (cyano-, hydro...

Well, I trust the researchers publishing in the Journal of Nutrition. There are several other scientific studies that refute the position of the Vegan Society, like this one appearing in the Journal of Nutritional Science, dated Oct, 2002: "Substantial amounts of vitamin B12 were found in some ...

Nope, it's an inactive form of B-12. It can even hinder the uptake of real b-12. The manifacturers of the stuff saays otherwise but the published, peer-reviewed studies says it's inactive. No, that's not right. This myth is being perpetuated by those trying to create a disinformation campaign again...

Yaeyama Chlorella in the 1kg. container which I usually purchase from luckyvitamin.com or iherb.com for around $45 + shipping. This is the best value I've come across. To be honest, since Chlorella has eliminated 90 percent of my allergies, I'd be willing to pay three times the price!

This site is slow to load but is a lot of fun to explore. One day I hope to dine at their restaurant. I usually purchase the 5 lb. container for $25.00

I think that what Robert is alluding to is that the star Vega's white color and apparent brightness made it a basic standard against which the apparent magnitudes of other stars are compared. (Its magnitude value is "0").

I'm more optimistic. I'm not willing to state that will see something along the lines of a U.S. Govt. backed "Hemp for Victory!" campaign like what occurred in the 1940s or a referendum passed where it's illegal for farmers in the U.S. to NOT grow hemp (late 1700s), but in time this nation...

So true. That's why I think it neat that my 6 year old son has already sampled and is savvy on almond butter, cashew butter, hemp butter and sesame butter. As soft as the shelled hemp nuts are, I would suspect that one could easily make their own with a food processer, perhaps adding a bit of hemp o...

Nothing else in nature cleanses and detoxifies the body as well as chlorophyll. The unique properties of the chlorophyll molecule (virtually identical to the hemoglobin molecule) allows for strong binding and chelation of heavy metals, pesticides and other toxins and removes them from the body. This...

I wonder how much 15lbs of quinoa goes for? All the protein you need with B-vitamins, calcium, fiber, iron and assorted phyto-nutrients to boot.

Seaweed is not a reliable source of B12. In fact, it contains B12 analogs, which are not absorbed by the body as B12. Some people actually end up with B12 deficiencies if they overdo on the Nori and don't supplement with actual B12. This is really not at all conclusive. I can find several sources, ...

Since chlorella is the chlorophyll champ in the plant kingdom, that's what I take each day. The best value I've come across is the 1 Kg Yaeyama Chlorella.
