  • " fortified " aka synthetic B-12….inferior junk ( anytime you put something into your body which is not real, it does more harm than good )  another example :  the milk industry brags about " added vitamin D ! "  don't pasteurize the milk and destroy the vitamin D, then you won't need to add laboratory made,  inferior , harmful , synthetic vitamins.

  • I have read that the cyanocobalamin type of B12 used in vitamins and cereals is not safe for use and very little of it is absorbed. Are the other forms of B12 better.

  • So where is the B12 coming from that is in supplements? I suspect that it is from eggs, fish and meat. Of course I am not discounting that it may be from excrement but I doubt it!

  • Please doctor…what do think about the Framingham Heart Study that concludes inflammation, not cholesterol, to be the real factor for heart disease? Hope to hear your assessment, thnx.

  • BREAKFAST CEREALS, fortified or otherwise, are a poor choice of vitamin supplementation.
    They are usually "fortified" with large quantities PROCESSED SUGARS and LOW QUALITY FATS.
    The quality of vitamins and minerals they contain, and their sources are [at best] UNKNOWN.
    So while they obviously provide enough B12, it's surprising that there was no mention of the [more obvious] downside to eating them… certainly NOT ONE OF THE SAFEST SOURCES !!!

  • Stop that rant about Cholesterol already !!!
    (0:330:58)

    While there's no argument that eating 200-400 eggs per day is too much, cholesterol is NOT the reason for not eating that much.

    In a 1992 book "Your Body's Many Cries For Water" by F. Batmanghelidj M.D., the mainstream approach, that arteries are being clogged by cholesterol because of excessive cholesterol amounts in the body, has been shown to be logically false.

    Further studies into the mechanism of cholesterol creation, absorption, and usage in the the body suggest that high cholesterol levels in the blood are indeed a warning sign of several possible conditions, but that they are only a SYMPTOM, (the result), and NOT THE CAUSE, of those conditions.
    So while lowering cholesterol intake or taking "anti cholesterol" medication may temporarily suppress or reduce the symptom, it will not solve the cause, which is bound to manifest itself in some other way.

    Another myth which should already have been abandoned by now is the classification of the different forms of cholesterol into "good" and "bad".
    The so called "bad" cholesterol has definite functions in our bodies, it is a BENEFICIAL substance, and viewing it as "harmful" is a misconception which is likely to result in erroneous conclusions, and bad nutrition and lifestyle choices.

    THE "LOW FAT" THEORY HAS BEEN DEBUNKED !
    THE "BAD CHOLESTEROL" MYTH HAS BEEN PROVEN WRONG !
    REPEATING THOSE WRONG VIEWS IS A MISLEADING AND DAMAGING PRACTICE !

    IT'S TIME TO STOP THE RANT ABOUT CHOLESTEROL AND FAT !!!

  • Why wasn't nutritional yeast mentioned as an excellent source of B12? Dr. Greger talks about it in How Not to Die. Perhaps he didn't know it at the time of this video?

  • Anecdotally I can vouch for this. I took vitamin B12 as part of a multivitamin (although it was quite a decent dose despite being part of a multivitamin) and later was tested for B12 and my levels were off the chart!

  • The good news is, in the U.S, Cheerios are fortified with B-12. The bad news is, in Mexico, where I live, Cheerios are NOT fortified with B-12. The good news is, since Cheerios are manufactured by the corporate criminals at Nestle Corp, Mexican vegans no longer have to agonize over whether or not they should buy a product manufactured by a bunch of assholes who are trying to weaponize the world's water supply.

  • There has to be a better way?

    Surely taking supplements is an unnatural means?

    I'm left with the disappointing feeling that hard-core vegans are extreme and miss out on a more natural way. I'm thinking its better to be a flexitarian. At least B12 can be found naturally. And what about K2, isn't that in abundance in Brie and Swiss cheese? Time for a sensible compromise. Let's face it vegans don't have the answers, they still go down with mineral and vitamin deficient illnesses and even get cancer and heart attack.

  • One thing I always wonder about: When did human beings needed to get B12? How come that somethign that is a difficult to get is needed for our body? Did humans didnt need B12 10.00 years ago?

  • Palmyra jaggery made from a tree in southern India commonly know as palm sugar(not coconut palm sugar) has natural source of vitamin b12 and I live in India so I get it cheap.

  • Wrong! The ones eating fortified breakfast cereal's levels of B 12 would be wrong because when you add folic acid to a food it upsets the levels go B12 and the actual level is masked because if the high folate level.

  • It's a mythical disaster and lie to wage war on the cholesterol levels in eggs. Eggs also have lethicin in their yolk that breaks down the cholesterol and neutralises and dangers to chicks and to humans! Mother Nature always provides an antidote!

  • and yeah, if you think cyanocobalamin's good. read up on cyanide poisoning and how it's treated with the administration of hydroxocobalamin. if you understand how it works, it should be common sense to anyone that you cannot treat a B12 deficiency like that and you risk poisoning the patient by doing so.
