Your Life and Health – Vitamin B12

Are you getting enough B12? Anyone eating a plant-based diet has surely been the recipient of this question. No matter what your diet looks like, it’s important to know the answer.

Although vitamin B12 is only needed in trace amounts, it is necessary to consume it in your diet. Unlike many other vitamins, the body does not produce B12. Most people get their B12 from consuming animal products (along with the fat, cholesterol, and all the other stuff they contain).
