Today I started entering my food on fitday.com to see where I was calorie/nutrition wise. It was no surprise to me that my B12 was nonexistent. I know B12 has been a topic of concern in the vegan world so it didn't really scare me much to see that big fat 0 next to the B12 recommendations. I did a quick google search to see if there were any veggie sources of the vitamin and came up short handed...unless I missed a page, I found that only animal sources can give you a significant amount of B12. This got me thinking...
If there are no known significant sources of B12 other than the ones found in animal products, then where the heck are the animals getting their B12?
Now, I am totally not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, and I am going off pure thought thinking here...but is it possible that our bodies can produce B12 on their own? Do we really actually need outside sources of B12 to live healthy/happy? Guessing by the way Freelee and DR look I would say no LoL, but I'd just like to get some fresh ideas on this subject. I think I've even heard that we have natural occurring bacteria in our stomach that produce the B12 for us? So, perhaps once our digestion is back up and running strong the supply of B12 will magically show up?
Thoughts, comments, disagreements?
