Why Supplement?

Low B12 intakes can cause anemia and nervous system damage. The only reliable vegan sources of B12 are foods fortified with B12 (including some plant milks, some soy products and some breakfast cereals) and B12 supplements. Some suggest that the lack of vitamin B12 elsewhere in our diet is a result of ‘modern’ industrialised food production.

Read the vitamin B12 key facts from the Vegan Society, including sources of Vitamin B12 in day-to-day foods, and What Every Vegan Should Know about Vitamin B12 from VeganHealth.org.

Alternatives

There are other vegan supplements with vitamin b12 available which, although substantially more expensive, are based on more natural ingredients.

For example look at Viridian High-Five-Multivitamin-and-Mineral-Formula in a base of alfalfa, spirulina and bilberry, rather than sugar and dextrose.

For other products see the multivitamins and minerals supplied by or registered with the Vegan Society.

Overseas Orders

As it may be difficult to find vegan supplements elsewhere, and you may prefer to buy from a campaigning vegan company, we will supply anywhere, however we are not keen on distribution by air mail so will try to suggest other suppliers where were can find them. Feedback welcome.

Whilst we give no endorsement of other suppliers, we are happy to pass on details, starting with:

Canada

United States (USA)

Thanks to Meg for seeking out Deva Vegan Vitamins, which may be a suitable alternative to shipping Veg1 from Nottingham, UK to the USA.

Deva Vegan Vitamins: full product info & suppliers

Amazon sell 2 x 90 tabs for $17.98 (about £11.80) compared to £15.60 for 2×90 Veg1 vegan supplements from Veggies, (including £2 for additional overseas postage).

There is a $25 minimum for free shipping, but even with a shipping charge the equivalent price is less than £16.

Perhaps the environmental detriment of delivery by air to the USA could be offset against the ethical dilemma of using tax dodgy Amazon, but there are alternatives to Amazon with many other more ethical suppliers.
