Make sure you do a annual blood work (any doctor, natural medecine college, naturopath, free clinic), so you know your B vitamins/Iron/selenium are okay. Usually vegans supplement with brewer's yeast, but that only gets you folic acid/B6. And if you take too much folic acid it will mask a B-12 deficiency.

B-12 is the goddess of all B vitamins.

Not enough B-12 in your liver can spell trouble.

Not enough B-12 = 10 of the 20 amino acids for your brain do NOT get absorbed.

If you have trouble with memory, paranoia, attention, Thyroid issues, etc....get your blood work done. Its only $150 if yo don't have health insurance.

Drinking large amounts of coffee can drain the body of many vitamins including B and Iron leading to anemia and nervous problems and caffeine allergies.

Just a heads up from someone who appreciates ya'll and want you to stay healthy.
