B-12 is one important nutrient for the body! So important, that Dr. David Brownstein wrote a book on its benefits called “Vitamin B-12 for Health”. This book describes how Vitamin B12 deficiency can be the underlying cause of many common illnesses including: anemia, brain fog, bursitis, depression, fatigue, fibromyalgia, and heart disease. Vitamin B12 deficiency is occurring in epidemic numbers. More info at www.drbrownstein.com
B-12 has many important functions in the body such as for immunity and for cell division and growth. B-12 is not available in plant sources so it makes it challenging to get in the diet for some, especially vegans. Although some think there is B-12 in plant sources, it is only active for bacteria and not in a form available to the human body. Food sources for B-12 include: Lamb liver, clams, beef liver, lamb kidneys, calf liver, beef kidneys, chicken liver, oysters, sardines, beef heart, eggs, lamb heart, trout, brains, mackerel, herring, flounder, salmon, tuna, lamb, sweetbreads, whey, beef, Edam cheese, Swiss cheese, Brie cheese, Gruyere cheese, blue cheese, haddock, flounder, scallops, cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese, halibut, perch, swordfish.
