Here at the Hippocrates Health Institute we have been collecting blood profiles on hundreds of people in part to analyze their level of B-12 (cobalamin). In May 2005, it was brought to our attention that urine and cellspecific analysis for B-12 deficiencies were far superior to the standard blood review. we set out on a research mission that has now accrued several hundred nutrient specific tests We discovered that: well over half the population tested was lacking this essential nutrient. This inspired an investigation that led us to question the gastro intestinal tract itself After many hours in medical archives I dunk I have discovered the core of why B- 12 is absent.In the past, observing subjects who were consuming the proper living food diet, including a comprehensive mixture of food (vegetables, sprouts and limited fruit) for a period no less than 18 months, we recorded less than a 5% B- 12 deficiency based on standard blood analysis. The same group profile was then subjected to a leukocyce (White blood cell) analysis, where absorbed nutrients were mined from within the cell. Based on this test, however, 65% of the subjects studied are lacking sufficient bioactive B- 12.Previously, it was thought that B- 12, and more specifically the bacteria that produces it, could be found in foods such as blue-green algae, green algae, tempeh, etc. The assumption was that when these foods were consumed, you would receive cyanocobalani4 a soil-based bacteria precursor to human bioactive B- 12.
