Even if you are eating a 100% organic, raw vegan diet, without exercise you're missing an integral piece of the puzzle. A recent study presented at the American Physiological Society Conference is suggesting that vitamin C could promote similar heart effects as seen with exercise. [1] (more…)

Cobalamin is another name for vitamin B12, an essential nutrient necessary for proper metabolism and energy production. Hydroxocobalamin is a chemical compound with a similar structure to vitamin B12. Even though the human body doesn't produce hydroxocobalamin, bacteria in the digestive tract can convert it into a usable form. Commercial and pharmaceutical versions of hydroxocobalamin also use bacteria to create large volumes of the compound for therapeutic purposes. (more…)

Vitamin B12 is a lot like a key, opening up doorways that lead to an array of metabolic, cellular processes. Like a key, vitamin B12 is unique among all other vitamins in both structure and function. Plants, animals, and fungi do not create it, unlike most dietary nutrients. While bacteria in the gut can create B12, the production is inadequate. Without this important nutrient, cellular function would cease, and our energy would plummet. Considering that B12 contributes to the production of ATP — the molecule that provides energy to every […]
