To all of you more experienced raw-fooders out there: where do you guys get your B12? Any ideas you have would be greatly appreciated.

You will be amazed at how the B12 issue is addressed in Alissa's book. It really covers that question and every question haven't even thought about asking. Get the book....you'll love it. Judith:)

The label on the Nutrex brand spirulina that I buy says that one teaspoon has 33% of the recommended daily amount of B12.

Drs. Gabriel Cousens and Brian Clement both address this issue and believe it is vital to take supplements. Brian only recommends the type available through Hippocrates and I use a liquid formulation recommended by Dr. Cousens. Dr. Cousens says that he's never met a raw vegan who wasn't b12 deficient and they both say that you can sustain permanent and irreversible damage. Neither believes, and their research has not proven, that there are any adequate food sources to prevent deficiencies.

I use a supplement from the HFS. Its called "Now" brand and is tittled Ultra B-12, it comes in a 4 oz bottle with a squeeze dropper in the cap. Each morning when I make my first food of the day I make some fresh Apple/Orange juice and I put a squeeze of the B-12 into the juice mug and then when I make the juice it falls into the mug. I do that daily and so the B-12 is on "auto" and I never think about it or miss taking it.
