“If vitamin B12 deficiency is a concern, or you simply want to have a real understanding of this all too common issue, then there is only one book that you should buy. The Vitamin B12 Deficiency Survival Handbook is the authority on all such matters. It is written in a way that allows the layman to understand the issue, and provides the most comprehensive coverage of the topic available as far as I can tell. A must for anyone interested in this issue.” - David Turner, LeanApe.com. Could a lack of vitamin B12 be the reason you're so tired or stressed? What if you were told that something found in your diet could prevent memory loss, Alzheimer and heart disease? What if complex neurological problems, developmental delay in children and infertility in you or a loved one were due to the deficiency of an easily available nutrient? Those associations (and many more) aren't just speculations or proposed theories – these theories have all risen up due to observations made by numerous people and have been proven by the help of research. That means they're not just theories - they're proven facts. This is what our new book is about – B12. Time to de-construct the mystery behind this vitamin to small, manageable, easy-to-understand pieces. “Vitamin B12 is the only nutrient not supplied by a vegan diet. Therefore when I saw Aqsa and Regev's book, I knew I had to read it. It's a great read full of bonafide references. I'm sure I could have found the majority of the information on the topic doing my own research online, but the time investment required would have been huge. Getting the book at a discounted rate just made it even better value.” - Andy Cowan, JuiceFiend.co.uk. “The B12 Deficiency Survival Handbook” is the direct result of hours and hours and hours of data-crunching, research papers and case studies, separating the junk from the real legit science.
