I don’t often review supplements,but I am SO excited to be reviewing the Vitamin B-12 Fast Dissolve by Natrol. Listen up, plant-based warriors: You need a B-12 in your life.
Here’s the deal: Vegan and vegetarian diets are amazingly healthy options – You get an abundance of vitamins and minerals through plants. The one exception is B-12. B-12, also known as cobalamin, is naturally found in animal foods or bacteria, and is critical to the energy pathways in the body. While we have lovely flora and fauna in our own microbiome, we can’t absorb the B-12 that exists in our gut – Our B-12 supply lives mainly in our colon, and absorption happens in the small intestine.
Need numbers: A study in Nature found that a vitamin B12 deficiency affected 86 percent of all vegans.
While you can absolutely get B-12 from fortified products such as nut/soy milks, cereals and nutritional yeast, I’ve found that the best mechanism is a supplement. And I’m loving Vitamin B-12 Fast Dissolve by Natrol. First of all, it’s SO easy to take, because it’s a fast-dissolve tablet. No water needed, so you can take your B-12 anytime, any place. Secondly, it tastes amazing: Strawberry flavor? Yes please!
I’ve been taking my Vitamin B-12 Fast Dissolve by Natrol when I hit my afternoon slump. Sometimes, around 2 or 3, I just lose energy. And instead of reaching for the caffeine (I can’t help it, I’m Brittish), I’ve been going for the B-12 instead. I get the boost of energy I need to see me through the afternoon “nap” hour, and I feel great.
