Vitamin deficiency (vitamin-D, vitamin-B12 etc.) is the main problem that haunts everyone in modern life from last 25 years. Various vitamins are the biochemical substances which are highly essential for our health. Lifestyle without sunlight exposure, working during late nights or night shifts, consuming non-nutrition grains which are grown in modern agriculture practices and many other facts are causing premature aging which is worrisome. Current medical industry recommends artificial vitamin supplements and injections as a temporary solution rather it fails to eradicate the original issue. Lot of vitamins are still available in our food. Nowadays it is more common to get vitamin-B12 and vitamin-D deficiency.
Pharmacy companies play major tricks in commercializing the people’s illness. Vitamin-B12 is one of water-soluble vitamins is very helpful in creating microbial balance in our gut. Lot of microbes took shelter in the digestive system of human body and other animals from very long time. But the centralized meat production system is conveying the wrong message as if it is scientific to society that vitamin-B12 can only be obtained from meat and same has been done from last 20 years. It is just a scientific illusion

There are 3 ways:
◼ You can overcome vitamin-B12 deficiency in 2-3 months by consuming curd and buttermilk prepared from desi cow’s milk (A2 milk). Lactobacillus microbes will do this job for us by filling in our gut.
◼ You can overcome by consuming curd and buttermilk extracted from plant-based milk such as sesame seeds, safflower, groundnut etc. This practice was prevalent in most of the regions in our country. In addition to this, by consuming curd and buttermilk from milk extracted from little millet, foxtail millet, pearl millet, finger millet and coconut, you can overcome vitamin-B12 deficiency in 2-3 months.
◼ Soak coarsely powdered Siridhanya for 6-8 hours, then boil this for 10 mins with same soaked water. Now gruel is prepared. After cooling this gruel, cover it with a thin muslin/cotton cloth and let it rest for 7-8 hours so that gruel gets fermented. Consume this fermented gruel by putting salt and or any sambar/dal/or any curry which you like. If you follow this method, it will help to increase vitamin-B12 production in your body itself.

In addition to this, vitamin-B12 is obtained in abundance along with calcium from the plant-based milks as mentioned already.

Hence getting up early and watching sunlight has become a rare occurrence. Apart from these, apartment life in cities is keeping people away from light and heat of the sun. Plenty of vitamin-D is produced in by exposing our body to orange color sun during sunrise and sunset. Because of above mentioned reasons vitamin-D deficiency has been increasing in human body from last 20-30 years. This creates imbalance in production of antibodies which are responsible for increasing our immunity, bone health and series of biochemical reactions.

It is possible to cure only from the vitamin-D which is produced in our body.
