There’s a huge amount of information about vitamin B12 and methylcobalamin out there, and we’ve tried to put as much of it as possible on this site. But there’s nothing quite like having a book in front of you with all the facts laid out, so we’ve put together a selection of the best B12 resources that you can buy cheaply on Amazon right now.
If a paper book doesn’t appeal to you or if you want instant access to information at a lower price, then lots of these recommended resources are available as Kindle e-books as well – the links will be below.
This is undoubtedly the most popular and well-known book on the subject, with a huge 321 pages full of useful information. With sections on symptoms, diagnosis (and misdiagnoses) and treatment, this book has it all. If you’re looking for a single ultimate resource with absolutely everything you could possibly want to know about vitamin B12, then this is it.
Despite the book’s rave reviews and proven track record of providing thousands of people with crucial facts, Could It Be B12? is actually the cheapest paperback book mentioned here ($10). The Kindle version costs a little more than some, but at $8.65 it’s still fantastic value for money!
Another book that has helped a huge number of people, The B12 Deficiency Survival Handbook squeezes a wealth of information into just over 100 pages. It’s a little simpler to read and less hard work than Could It Be B12?, and it contains lots of facts that aren’t widely discussed but are extremely useful to know.
On the downside, The B12 Deficiency Survival Handbook is the most expensive option on this list, but it only costs a few dollars more and it’s still an option that should be seriously considered.
As vitamin B12 is almost exclusively found in animal products, vegetarians and vegans are particularly susceptible to suffering from vitamin B12 deficiency. This e-book tackles the issue head-on, providing a great range of alternatives for vegetarians to consider. You’ll also find detailed information on how your body uses B12, the symptoms of deficiency, and the importance of choosing a supplement that contains the natural methylcobalamin form of B12.
This publication is only available as an e-book, and comes highly recommended if you’re a vegetarian (or considering giving up meat) and you want all the relevant information for less than $3.50.

A hugely educational guide that’s easy to read and understand, Vitamin B12: The Ultimate Guide is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn the vitamin B12 basics. This book explains exactly what vitamin B12 is, as well as telling the reader why B12 is so important, the risks associated with not getting enough B12, and the best sources of this essential nutrient.
While it doesn’t go into as much depth as some of the other books listed here, the Vitamin B12: The Ultimate Guide e-book is the cheapest good read you’ll find on the subject, and it’s certainly worth $3.
It may not have the most catchy title, but this is the only good book we can find that focuses on the issues surrounding pernicious anemia. This is one of the most common causes of vitamin B12 deficiency, and everyone over the age of 50 is at risk, so this book will appeal to a huge number of people. And with over 300 pages, there’s certainly a lot of information here!
This is one of the more expensive books recommended here (Kindle: $7, paperback: $16), but its laser focus on the hugely important topic of pernicious anemia makes it worth the money if you’re affected by this malabsorption condition.
There are plenty of other books discussing methylcobalamin, vitamin B12 and B12 deficiency, but we can’t recommend any of them as highly as the ones listed above. Some contain inaccuracies, while some (e.g. Signs of Vitamin B12 Deficiencies) are good books that are nevertheless overpriced for the amount of information they contain.
If you choose to buy any of the books or e-books recommended here, please use our links to purchase the products on Amazon. It won’t cost you anything extra at all, but we’ll receive a small commission that helps to keep this site running. Thank you!
