Vitamin B 12 (Cobalamins)

If you talk to a vegan or strict vegetarian about their diet, you will more then likely hear about vitamin B 12. Non-meat eaters are constantly paranoid about getting enough of this nutrient. So what does this vitamin do and what food sources can we obtain it from?

B 12 (Cobalamins) is a vitamin that is naturally produced by microorganisms, which are found in most animals. This includes humans, but where we produce B 12 we cannot utilize it so we still need to consume it from other sources. The best food sources for vitamin B 12 are beef, poultry, fish, shellfish, and egg yolks.
