Some writers tell you can only obtain it from animals products and only the B12 from animal products is absorabable by the body.

Others tell you can obtain it from none animals products but that form is not absorbable by the body and it may even block the absorption of the real B12.


So, What is the truth?


The reason it's controversial is because you can make a simple statement like that, which, at face value, makes veganism look dangerous. There are so many stories of people, like SeaSiren pointed out, where people don't use supplements and don't need to supply B12. I'm sure BigBwii doesn't use them either and he keeps on trucking with no problem.

Since some university study showed that there is no cobalt in the soil of conventionally grown foods, but there is in organically grown foods, then it may be possible that there is B12 in organic foods. (Victoria Boutenko references the study in her book "Green for life" : www.rawfamily.com ).

Still, unless and until someone proves this is true (and unless and until I eat 100% organic) , I'll stick with a supplement to make sure.

I'd like to just add onto my answer and say that I think a supplement is a good idea to be safe, but don't shake with worry if at the end of the day you forgot to supplicate.

2 : to ask for earnestly and humbly
synonym see BEG
- sup·pli·ca·tion /"s&-pl&-'kA-sh&n/ noun
