so, in such a situation, it is important for us to take plenty of Vitamin B12 in our diet.
Vitamin B12 protects our nervous system and provides energy to the body by dividing red
blood cells. Therefore include such things in the food which are good sources of vitamin
B12. To meet Vitamin B12 deficiency you need to

Vitamin B12. To fulfill the need of Vitamin B12 in your diet, you should consume yogurt

of Vitamin B12 daily. Whereas, children between four and eight years need 1.2 micrograms of
vitamin B12 daily. Children between the ages of 9 and 13 years need 1.8 micrograms of vitamin
B12 everyday. At the same time, adults need 2.4 micrograms of vitamin B12 every day. Pregnant
women require 2.6 micrograms of Vitamin B12 everyday. What are the best sources of vitamin B12?
The best source of vitamin B12 is animal products, including meat and dairy.
Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend you eat 1 to 3 serves a day of lean meat, poultry,
fish or eggs, depending on your age and gender. The guidelines also recommend 1 to 4 serves
of dairy a day, depending on your age and gender. You can get vitamin B12 from the following
foods: * clams
* mussels * crab
* salmon * beef
* chicken * eggs (whole)
* milk Most Australians get more than enough vitamin
B12 in their normal diets. If you eat more than you need, it’s stored in your liver and
can be used later. Vegetarians can get enough vitamin B12 from
dairy foods and eggs. It used to be thought that plant foods such as mushrooms, spirulina,
tempeh and miso contained vitamin B12, but this is not correct.
The only way for vegans to get enough is by eating foods fortified with vitamin B12 or
by taking a supplement. Foods in Australia that are fortified with vitamin B12 include
some soy milks, yeast spread, and vegetarian meat substitutes such as soy-based burgers
and sausages. Should you take vitamin B12 supplements?
You should talk to your doctor about taking a vitamin B12 supplement if you don’t have
enough B12 in your diet — for example, if you are vegan or avoiding animal foods. It
is very important for pregnant or breastfeeding vegan and vegetarian women to have enough
vitamin B12 to reduce the risk of their baby developing a vitamin B12 deficiency.
You might also need a supplement if you can’t absorb enough vitamin B12 from food if, for
example, you have a problem with your gut or an autoimmune condition. Your doctor can
order a blood test to see if you have enough B12 in your body. Thanks for watching our video
