Tips to Boost Vitamin B12 for a Vegan Diet
[th_youtube id=’pndBKyjE6ZY’ name=’Vitamin B12 Sources in a Vegan Diet’]
A recent article, https://www.sciencealert.com/is-a-vegan-or-mediterranean-diet-better-for-heart-health-physiologists-investigate, suggests that one of the biggest problems with people who try a vegan diet is getting enough Vitamin B12, which is often associated with animal-based food sources. However, this cannot be farther from the truth, if you integrate what I suggest in the video above. The sources listed below are excellent sources of Vitamin B12 and should be a part of any diet, especially a vegan one. The first one is nature’s multivitamin and one that I consume regularly, especially in smoothies.
3) Fortified vegan milk or cereals
In addition, I discuss the importance of getting Calcium, Iron, and Magnesium, which people often think are difficult to get in a vegan diet. In my latest book, “The Art of Stress-Free Living”, I go into more detail about these and other food sources as they relate to mental and physical health. I highly suggest you download a FREE copy of this book under the “Books & Publications” Tab or, better yet, go to www.amazon.com/dp/B07K8ZDFPK to buy the book and donate that money to charity.
1) Calcium: Vegan milk, cruciferous vegetables (i.e. broccoli, kale, etc.), soy
2) Iron: Legumes, Dark Leafy Greens, Nuts, and Seeds.
3) Magnesium: Hemp, Dark Chocolate, Avocados, nuts, legumes, etc.
