    Some of the best food sources of Vit B12 are: clams, oysters, mussels, fortified cereals, liver, fish, crabs and beef. I know there is a test that will determine how well you absorb B12. However, I'm not sure if it will determine total absorption.

    I hope I have answered your question.

    A blood test will determine your absorption of B12. I know this because I have frequently received B12 shots. B12 is an absorption vitamin. If you need to receive B12 shots you are more than likely not absorbing all your nutrients.

    Insufficient B12 Vitamin could get both from the limited diet ingestion caused by an unbalanced dietary strategy or even due to intrinsic factor insufficiency, resulted in pernicious anemia, a health problem which, if it is not dealt with, could regrettably result in dying. Having less the particular intrinsic factor ensures that the gastrointestinal tract of the person that has it has problems with ingesting B12 Vitamin adequately. Having less the particular vitamin normally brings about anemia, it also might occur in serious nervous as well as mental destruction. Thus, observe the pursuing signs that can help everyone identify the particular Vitamin B12 deficit.
