Is there any medicines in ayurved for deficient Vitamin B12. If yes please tell me the best and effective one. Thanks.

Hye Thanks for the query.  Vitamin B-12 is mostly available only in animal foods: meat, fish, poultry, eggs, and dairy products.  You can also get this important nutrient in some nutritional yeasts, as well as from fortified cereals and soy milk.  Vegans need to take a vitamin-B supplement daily. You can add fermented foods like idli or dosa or sprouts to improve Vitamin B12 in your diet too. Dairy like curd or buttermilk are helpful in improving the gut bacteria as they help too.
