Just came across this forum and figured I'd post about my b12 supplement. My mom and I have tried quite a few different supplements and the ones that seems to absorb the best are sublingual .

If you're looking for a b12, get a sublingual:

I usually just go to VitaminShoppe or order off Amazon. There are many brands that have sublingual supplements :)

Thanks for the B12 advice for vegans. I'll add that to my daily regime.

I too live in the Pacific Northwest of USA, in Portland, Oregon. Because of our low sunlight, I take vitamin D. Because I am vegan, I take B12.

I've been wondering about this, too--what about B12?

I'm down to almost no dairy/eggs, and that's the one thing that worries me a bit.

I agree with Bilby. If you can get your vitamins from your food, you are ahead of the game. I live in the Pacific NW where we don't get a lot of sun. Vitamin D is the only one I take on a regular basis.

Supplements are only of benefit if your diet is deficient. First priority is to ensure you eat a nutritionally-balanced diet. Overloading your body with excessive vitamins you don't need is both unnecessary and unwise; all vitamins can be toxic in high quantities. Eat food and enjoy it!

I am navigating the world of vegan/vegetarianism and explored raw diets. Please excuse my ignorance but so used to taking a multivitamin daily & calcium supp spirolina supp ...and it seems almost like oxymoron but I had to ask as reading blogs i realize many do still take either a multivit or supplements or both.

Thanks so much

kj
