Vitamin B12 for Vegans a Common Component of Japanese diet

Viable Vitamin B12 for Vegans available for centuries as common component of Japanese daily diet ~ Shiitake Mushroom

Consider this: Do mushrooms require B12? Why would mushrooms adsorb and absorb the B12? Is this an accident of Nature;  or ~ is DNA much more intelligent than we realize?

In AUSTRALIA ~ University of Western Sydneycompleted ground-breaking research on the B12 content of button mushrooms.

In JAPAN ~ According to Dr. Kanichi Mori, Shiitake mushrooms have more vitamin B12 than milk and fish.

Brief:Certain types of Mushrooms are unique in that they contain Vitamin B12, something that vegetables can’t produce at all.  Since B12 is mainly of animal origin, deficiency is commonly associated with vegetarian diets.  Mushrooms were found to contain 0.32-0.65 mg per gram of B12, allowing just 3 g of fresh mushrooms to provide the RDA of this vitamin.  Vegetarians may find this a useful way of getting this important nutrient. ~ more at http://www.polymathium.com ~ This is possibly due to a subtle, potential symbiotic relationship that occurs between the three parties involved… humans, mushrooms, and B12 producing bacterium.

In AUSTRALIA

Australian Government Analytical Laboratories found appreciable amounts of B12 in mushrooms.

There has long been speculation about whether or not mushrooms provide vitamin B12, a vitamin normally associated with animal foods. In 1987, the Australian Government Analytical Laboratories found appreciable amounts of B12 in mushrooms.

Based on this analysis, the mushroom industry then included B12 as a nutrient in their promotional material and advertising. The B12 level was disputed by some nutrition professionals who believed that only animal sources can provide B12, while others wanted to know whether the B12 claimed to be found was bio-available.

In early 2009, researchers at the University of Western Sydney completed ground-breaking research on the B12 content of button mushrooms. Their detailed experiments on mushrooms of all sizes and stages of growth from around Australia conclusively proved that:

A. Mushrooms do have B12 present. It is on both the surface of the mushroom and in the flesh of the mushroom. The majority of B12 is in the surface of the cup of the mushroom.

B. The B12 present is bio-available, in exactly the same form as B12 in beef liver and fish.

Mary Magdalene – Alchemist and High-Priestess of Hathor

Mary Magdalene

This article refers to the woman thought to be a disciple of Jesus who may also be the one refered to as The Holy Grail or the one who carries the DNA of the Sang Raal.

 

MARY-MAGDALENE-Alchemist

MARY MAGDALENE- The Alchemist

Mary Magdalene or Mary of Magdala (original Greek Μαρία ἡ Μαγδαληνή)[3] is described, in the New Testament, as one of the most important women in the movement of Jesus throughout his ministry.[4] Also referred to as the Migdal Eder (Tower of the Flock) by Margaret Starbird

The late 20th and early 21st century has enjoyed the restoration of the New Testament icon and most devoted of apostles, Mary Magdalene as the most prominent patron of women’s preaching and ministry. Mary’s new popularity has grown, in part, from the realization that Mary Magdalene undoubtedly suffered from what many now believe to be a great injustice based on historical defamation of character, perpetrated by emotionally unstable church authorities.

Traditionally, Mary Magdalene was falsely identified as a repentant prostitute, and has been incorrectly depicted in classical art as a so-called sinner, often found weeping and wiping the feet of Jesus with her lovely long hair. Read more of this post

Mary Magdalene's Pink Lotus DAKINI Durga Durgee

Mary Magdalene's Pink Lotus DAKINI Durga Durgee

William Hearth’s most recent book reminds us that we all have the opportunity to reconsider our preconceived notions regarding the historical characters, who all figured so prominently in christian theology; individuals such as Mary Magdalene, Judas Iscariot and Saul (Paul) of Tarsus

William Hearth’s works discuss how “recorded-history” can be, and most often is, written and rewritten, time and again, depending on the prevailing mindset of those in power, during any given period in “realtime-history.”  So-called “politically correct” views are written into, and out of, recorded history on a daily basis… (eg. reference Mary Magdalene’s exoteric and esoteric popularity; past, present and future).

ORMUS ~ The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene Revealed Part [A]
…is more of a macrocosmic view of the “rethink” of the Levantine Jesus Period and the ancient history that leads up to that unique period of history 8,000 B.C. ~ 500A.D. and later the 1400~1500’s. Did women read books in those days: circa 20BC~40AD? Were aristocratic women educated; and in any manner considered to be erudite individuals?

ORMUS ~ The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene Revealed Part [B]
…promises a more intimate look at how Mary Magdalene and her constituency, [including Judas Iscariot (of the Sicarii)] might have lived on a day to day basis… and touches largely upon the Ebionites’ (Ebyonim‘s -> Evyonim) connection with both the Hindu Ahimsa & Buddhist philosophies [of 400B.C. and earlier] as well as the ISIS / Goddess sects (of the Egyptians and Babylonians…) The non-violent lifestyle of vegans and vegetarians would certainly have clashed with the Orthodox Judaic temple practices of offering blood sacrifices (of innocent animals). Hence connections are made [in Part B, primarily (and part A as well)] to ancient and modern concerns of living lightly on the Earth, whilst attempting to maintain good relations with one’s neighbors on all sides.

Part B~ also includes an expose on more specific chemical methods and formulae of acquiring and producing ORMUS according to ancient formulae and techniques.

The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene: The NOVEL
The upcoming NOVEL  (proposed debut late spring of 2011) is an historical romance based on the foundational research accumulated during the production of Parts A & B;

It is a NOVEL
…wherein, the intimate potential and various possibilities that would have been inherent in the lifestyles of individuals such as Mary Magdalene, Judas Iscariot (of the Sicarii) and other Financial Sponsors of the Ebionite Movement are explored in exquisite detail.

Fasting on Fruit Juice ~ Day 31

I’ve been a vegan-vegetarian for over 40 years and this year I’m performing a juice fast. I’ve been consuming approx. 90% fruit juice and 10% vegetable juice for over 4 weeks now. But I’ve only just begun! I’m aiming for 90~120 days at least.

 

 

~ Polymathius ~ A Compassionate Man of Ahimsa

~ Polymathius ~ A Compassionate Man of Ahimsa

 

Today, (Day 31:) I enter into the 2nd month of fasting on liquids. I am fasting as an act of gratitude; to acknowledge the bounty and blessings that Gaia, our Mother Earth bestows upon us, moment to moment; and to remind others that we all share a common responsibility to give back to our Mother The Earth and our Natural Environment.

 

Sustainability requires more than political activism. Sustainability begins at home and at the office, in our factories and our places of worship.

Day 31: I feel alert and energized. I sleep well and wake up early, refreshed and looking forward to a new day. I’ve been consuming 90% fruit juice and 10% vegetable juice for over 4 weeks now.

Polymathium ~ What is it?

The term Polymathium™ is a word coined* as a compliment to the term polymath.

Wherein polymath is the critical component:
Polymathium is a combination of the words Polymath, Colloquium and Auditorium.

 

~ Polymathius ~ A Compassionate Man of Ahimsa

~ Polymathius ~ A Compassionate Man of Ahimsa

 

Polymathium~ a Colloquium for the Polymath in all of us.

The Polymathium…is a place where classically minded people can congregate in cyberspace to discuss the “little things” (as opposed to those”big questions”) that make life worth living… returning to the roots of Philosophy, as it were.A polymath (Greek πολυμαθής, polymathēs, “having learned much”) is a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas. In less formal terms, a polymath (or polymathic person) may simply be someone who is very knowledgeable. Most ancient scientists were polymaths by today’s standards.

Vegan B12 BioAvailable in Shiitake Mushrooms

More on B12 content in Tempeh, Seaweeds, Organic Produce, and Other Plant Foods, below…

Note* This article is an edit of a very important and comprehensive article found at http://www.veganhealth.org/b12/
http://www.veganhealth.org/b12/plant#mush

Summary: No food in Europe or the U.S. other than Japanese Nori, has been tested* for lowering MMA levels (*at the time of publication of this original article). 

Thus, the discussion about whether Western vegans can get B12 from plant foods can, and probably should, end here (until proper research is conducted). Because so many plant foods have failed other tests that do not measure up to the MMA lowering test, and because there are so many false rumors being passed around, the studies of B12 in plant foods are examined in detail below.

The only plant foods which have been tested for B12 activity using the gold standard of lowering MMA levels in humans are dried and raw nori from Japan. Dried nori made MMA status worse, indicating that it can reduce B12 status and can possibly harm people who are B12-deficient. Raw nori kept MMA levels about the same, indicating that it didn’t harm B12 status, but it did not help either.

Of all the foods studied below, only tempeh in Indonesia or Thailand, dulse, Chlorella, raw nori, Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, and coccolithophorid algae warrant much further attention for providing B12. Unless these foods are shown consistently to correct B12 deficiency, vegans should not rely on them as a B12 source.

Introduction

It would be great to find a reliable plant source of B12 for vegans. One might get the opposite impression given my level of critique of some of these studies. My skepticism is only due to the potential harm from relying on a food that contains inactive B12 analogues which can make a B12 deficiency even worse.
