The biggets problem is getting enough vitamin B12 – the sole source of vitamin B12 are meat and dairy products. Food of vegetable origin does not contain vitamin B12 – the only exception are some mushroom species. Taking B12 in the form of food supplements is recommended for those who are on a vegetarian or vegan diet.
