DESCRIPTION: Fortified foods such as some breakfast cereals and types of nutritional yeast can provide another cholesterol-free source of vitamin B12. Have a question about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/videos/daily-source-of-vitamin-b12/ and I’ll try to answer it! Note that nutritional yeast doesn’t naturally contain B12—it has to be fortified with the vitamin. So many formulations lack B12 completely. So for example, while Red Star brand’s “vegetarian support formula” nutritional yeast is an excellent source of B12, their “elder support formula” doesn’t have any (which makes no sense, as the Institute of Medicine recommends everyone over age 50 supplement with B12). So if you buy it in bulk and are relying on it for your B12, you may want to ask to see the package it came from just to check to make sure it has B12 in it. If you’d rather just take a supplement once a week, see yesterday’s video of the day, Cheapest Source of Vitamin B12 (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/cheapest-source-of-vitamin-b12/). And for an explanation on why fortified foods and supplements are the preferred source, see the video before that, Safest Source of B12 (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/safest-source-of-b12/). And to put the whole B12 issue in perspective, see Vegan B12 Deficiency: Putting It into Perspective (http://nutritionfacts.org/blog/2011/08/25/vegan-b12-deficiency-putting-it-into-perspective/). And if you’re sick of learning about B12, there’s only one more video in this five-part series, and there’s always a thousand other topics to fall back on (http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/).

Cheapest source of vitamin B12







Subscribe to Dr. Greger’s free nutrition newsletter and get the Evidence-Based Eating Guide: A Healthy Living Resource from Dr. Greger and NutritionFacts.org. Sign up at https://www.nutritionfacts.org/healthkit.
DESCRIPTION: Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) supplementation can cost as little as $2 a year. Have a question about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/videos/cheapest-source-of-vitamin-b12/ and I’ll try to answer it! This is the third of a five-part video series this week on B12. For why one might choose supplements and fortified foods see yesterday’s video of the day, Safest Source of B12 (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/safest-source-of-b12/). Tomorrow I’ll cover various daily regimens. B12 is one of the few Vitamin Supplements Worth Taking (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/vitamin-supplements-worth-taking/). And if you’re new to the issue, please see my blog post Vegan B12 Deficiency: Putting It into Perspective (http://nutritionfacts.org/blog/2011/08/25/vegan-b12-deficiency-putting-it-into-perspective/) for some background. If you’re that much of a nutrinerd to enjoy these derivations, see my nine-part video series on vitamin D starting with Vitamin D Recommendations Changed (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/vitamin-d-recommendations-changed/). If you’d rather just cut to the chase, see my recommendations here (http://nutritionfacts.org/blog/2011/09/12/dr-greger%E2%80%99s-2011-optimum-nutrition-recommendations/). As always these are just a few of the 1,500 or so topics I have videos about (http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/).
