Feeling Connected...

wonderful talk, please check it out...

B-12 Deficiency

I have B-12 Deficiency and now really feeling it...I am tired all the time and it is just hard to keep up with 12 hour work schedule...I knew about my B-12 deficiency almost 2 years but did not do much about it, other than ordering pills that i never took consistently, or bought nutritional yeast that ended up on the kitchen shelf only to be used for customers...

Now I am doing a more serious reseach and oooops, it is damn serious!

My friend Sassy writes in her website:

"It's very important for you to grasp that in our modern food supply B12 is found MOSTLY in animal products. Why? Because Vitamin B12 comes from our soil. When a cow, for instance, chomps on grass she eats this vitamin B12-enriched soil. There are also microorganisms located in the animal's intestine that produce Vitamin B12.

And those ancestors of ours who were able to thrive on a plant-based diet without adding any Vegan Vitamin B12 supplements? Well, they were getting their food directly out of the ground still covered in soil -- soil which they were never quite able to completely remove. Our food today is usually very clean by the time it makes it to our stores, and then we further clean it in our own kitchen (since most of us don't like the taste of dirt). Goodbye Vitamin B12.

If you eat a vegan diet, you MUST be sure you're getting the amount of Vegan Vitamin B12 you need."

Ok, now I am taking b-12 pills and will get some more nutritional yeast for home.
