okraw -John, why not recommend sea vegetables for Vit b-12? Sea veggies are a WHOLE FOOD perfectly balanced by Nature; recognizable, utilizable and easily eliminated by our bodies. Whereas the man-made vitamin isolates are not as recognizable nor can they be fully utilied by the body. Rather, they will stimulate but they also ENEVERVATE and they build up inside the body - which is not good! For sweeteners, why not suggest STEVIA? It is a WHOLE food grown in Nature! There is no need to take yet another man-made "natural" sugar when Nature already has one that it PERFECT and COMPLETELY SAFE.

Love the way John innocently disses people with his honesty.
I was laughing so hard at the people from rawfoodcentral. Their faces when you were talking about whole foods, nuts, fat and dressings and the blanches veggies hahaha. XDDDDDD they were like umm wtf get out of here.

John, about Sugavida... You say: "literally like eating fruit in stead of eating sugar" A statement I find hard to stomach. I figure Palmyra palm sugar (Sugavida) is close to coconut palm sugar, which contains up to 79% sucrose (regular white table sugar = pure sucrose) and then some free glucose and fructose. It's a lot of sugar (>80%, 90%?) to go with the micronutrients... A grape has about 15% sugar... They carefully avoid to call it sugar BTW, marketing it as "superfood sweetener". They compare the fructose content of 3% to that of coconut sugar, which is said (elsewhere) to be 40%. They somehow take the sucrose (containing 1 fructose and 1 glucose) into account for the coconut sugar, but not for the Sugavida!? The B12 claim is bold... But -if true- to get it from sugar? They should try to add B12 to cigarettes, so you can take up smoking to be more healthy ;-)

If you are a vegan here is where you can get vitamin b-12: Nutritional Yeast, Marmite, Vegemite, and most seaweeds. If anyone tells you vegans can't get vitamin b-12 please cite these four foods...
informationwarfare (2 years ago)
+Drew Hall Seaweeds might have pseudo-b12 like compounds that do not function the same. A good quality b12 supplement is recommended for vegans and meat eaters. Methylcobalamin combined with Adenosylcobalmin is superior to the cheap Cyanocobalamin.

What does analog mean? Regarding the food.
Sarah Norment (3 years ago)
+chiyerano Ok, I see. I guess how I use analog is simply in a different way. Thanks for clarifying. 
chiyerano (3 years ago)
+Sarah Norment Only when people mention naturally occurring analogs for vitamin B12 they basically mean something that looks like vitamin B12 but doesn't really act like vitamin B12 actually would in the body in the sense that it doesn't give much if any, of the same benefits that the actual vitamin B12 would.  So you could take these analogs and still be very deficient in vitamin B12.  
Sarah Norment (3 years ago)
+chiyerano Yeah you're right. The stuff made in laboratories are definitely analogs, but some analogs are found in nature as well, and some analogs that are found in nature are simply purified, rather than created in the lab, so I shouldn't have limited it to the laboratory created analogs only. They can be chemically created or isolated/extracted from nature using laboratory chemistry. Estrogen from horse urine can be extracted and used in creating a birth control pill for humans. This would be an analog estrogen hormone that is not naturally human, but it is analogous to human estrogen and our body is able to recognize and use it as if it were human estrogen. So you are right, analogs can be naturally found as well. Analog just means something is analogous as something else. It has a different chemical structure but serves the same type of function. 
chiyerano (3 years ago)
+Sarah Norment I thought that analogs can also be naturally found in nature like the B12 analogs naturally found in some forms of seaweed without ever being in a lab.
Sarah Norment (3 years ago)
+kingmike40 it means something is created in a laboratory to be similar chemical structure of what is found in nature. Some of the vitamins that you see in drug stores are extracted from plants, fruits, vegetables and concentrated and put in capsule form, but others are analogs of natural vitamins, created by chemistry in the lab. These analogs can be made more efficiently and when they enter your body, the receptor portion of the analog is the same chemical structure as the vitamin found in nature, and therefore tricks the body into using the analog just like the natural vitamin. The medical field uses analog hormones too, like if someone has an underactive thyroid, the doctor prescribes a thyroid hormone analog that your body can use since your thyroid is not functioning. Not all analogs are bad. But, the natural thing is always best, if it comes from plants.

Hi, I need to buy a new B12 product. What brand can you recommend (hydro or methylcobalamine !) (good quality, good price...shipping to Belgium) Thanks, Ilse
Humane Alien (3 years ago)
If somebody didn't know you can buy chufas, so as they call them in the video tiger nuts, in Spain, it is very popular here, and in Valencia they make a traditional drink that is called orchata, it is very tasty, my favorite drink!

I really like most of this video but why add honey to apple cider? It's a naturally vegan drink, and you can even make it at home with apples, oranges, and a few spices. Tastemade has a video on how to do it. Anyway, please stop with the honey and beeswax T-T
Humane Alien (3 years ago)
I totally agree honey and beeswax is not vegan!

thanks for the mention +Disco Nouvo- and the honey video is here for reference: http://goo.gl/ZfFUpD

well said.  honey equals a raw vegan fail.  +Bite Size Vegan has a great video on what happens to bees when they are commercially farmed..
Chloe Rose (3 years ago)
In vegan (but not raw) almond, coconut, and hemp milk you'll find about a lot of of B12 per cup. You can get your daily B12 in non-dairy milk (if you're okay with having some un-raw food) There's also raw vegan medicine with 100% B12 per pill. Well it's raw vegetarian but the B12 isn't from animals it's from bacteria i guess. So it's raw vegan basically. Meat-eaters lack the same amount of B12 in their diet. As he said, it isn't an veg vs non-veg thing. Most people, no matter what diet or life style lack it. So get your almond milk today~~ Also I'm sure technically beeswrap is better than plastic, but let's find an eco-friendly *vegan* alternative to plastic. Plastic is harmful but so is exploiting bees. Save the bees. Don't buy products with beeswax or honey. Please don't promote nonvegan products. I'm already upset over Kristina putting raw honey in her recipes. It's not vegan.
White Potato (3 years ago)
He was just looking for a fruit or plant source that has natural B-12. Plant milks have added B-12. Still drink them though.
Disco Nouvo (3 years ago)
spot on +Chloe Rose.

THanks John.  Too bad the bees wrap is made from bees wax. Its not vegan!

I am still LOVEN your videos! Thank you for your insight. I am sitting down with my UNFI catalog while watching. I love that you care about organic as well as vegan. btw check out Oralive for your teeth. My friend healed his tooth cavity. no lie! He is also the President of the CCOF. Phil LaRocca
barbara schendel (3 years ago)
John, Vitamin B12 is actually produced by bacteria. The only reason that it shows up in milk and meat products is because they are "contaminated" with it. So I'm guessing the B12 that is in this product is added, just like any B12 supplement.

Dustin Brookens (3 years ago)
John has been selling juicers since before people bought juicers. He is a classically trained salesman who tries to have a moral compass and only shows us the stuff he thinks is worthwhile. He often also negotiates deals on these products through discount codes, and does not accept cash endorsements to do this. While he may get a free sample of a product, that has never stopped him from giving a poor product a poor review.
StephyPlantbased (3 years ago)
doesnt he kinda sell juicers and stuff?

Isn't sugar just sugar beet juice that's been dried?
mini696 (3 years ago)
+poolahpot I guess so, I am not an expert.  
poolahpot (3 years ago)
date sugar?
mini696 (3 years ago)
It can be from many sources, some off the top of my head: Cane sugar, palm sugar, coconut
StephyPlantbased (3 years ago)
can be both. here in germany they use beets. but the problem is, sugar is usually highly processed. sugar even gets filterd (or somethinh) through bones. sugar beets though or sugar syrup is high in iron and stuff. just refined sugar r empty cals. no nutrition just carbs.
mini696 (3 years ago)
Sugar cane juice.

Thanks for the link John . . . turns out I am subscribed! But I've neglected watching videos on my subscribe list. Can't WAIT to get my new Omega juicer! Thanks again for all of your incredible information. B12 is important for us vegans especially if you're eating mostly whole foods without added B12. Never heard of Tiger Nuts, another great resource! You're the man!

B12 is found in soil which animals consume which we consume. Even meat eater have b12 deficiencies because our soils are lacking.

maybe some nasty bugs live in that fruit? or a lot poop on them and we eat the poop (b12) hahajaja

Romans 14 New American Standard Bible (NASB) Principles of Conscience 14 Now accept the one who is weak in faith, but not for the purpose of passing judgment on his opinions. 2 One person has faith that he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats vegetables only. 3 The one who eats is not to regard with contempt the one who does not eat, and the one who does not eat is not to judge the one who eats, for God has accepted him.23 But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and whatever is not from faith is sin.

Your choice isn't worthy of respect unless you can buy ethically raised and killed animals that don't pollute our land. If you can do that without my fucking tax dollars then you are respectable. Hey, I'd like you to fund my heroin addiction and then I'm gonna leave my used needles all over the place. Deal? Respectable? Your 'choice' deserves to be ridiculed and considered obscene. It's just that everybody's doing it right? You know I'm right. You know you don't know any better.
Keepskatin (3 years ago)
+Mrs. Puni Romans 14 English Standard Version (ESV) Do Not Pass Judgment on One Another 14 As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. 2 One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. 3 Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. 4 Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master[a] that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand.   I respect your choice of eating only plants;you should respect me eating all living things.

Mrs. Puni (3 years ago)
God is NOT Dead. Go watch the movie. Lol. But to the keepskatin person.. I suugest you do some research. I do understand where you are coming from though. I'm NOT trying to argue what is right to eat or what is wrong to eat. In the new testament what one eats physically isn't important. It's what one is eating spiritually. I'm saying that Adam and Eve were vegan. It wasn't until Noahs Ark did God allow man to eat meat and even then it was a specific kind. Look into it. It's actually pretty amazing.
