Vitamin B-12-Take the Liquid & Not the Pill

A doc friend of mine and I were chatting this past weekend (he knows I’m vegan) and he said btw how do you get Vitamin B-12? I told him: in pill form via cyanocobalamin. He suggested I switch to the liquid, that I avoid cyanocobalamin at all costs, and he explained why-see below. I will be getting the liquid ASAP. I will also schedule an annual exam with my doc and make sure I get my B-12 level tested.

I have a nutrition degree and I know that this type of deficiency is common, but I did not realize that my healthy vegan lifestyle could be a contributor.

A vegan version of methylcobalamin B-12 is also available in pill form.

There is a pill or wafer form of B-12, methylcobalamin. It is sold at the Vitamin Shoppe and is very reasonably priced. The pill is much better if you travel.
