Relation between Vitamin D and Vitamin B12


National Animal Experiment Station, Uppsala 7. May 7.

IN some experiments on chick growth with wholly vegetable diets1 supplemented with pure vitamin B12, a relationship became evident between the growth-stimulating effect of this vitamin and the content of calcium, iron and vitamin D of the diet. In an attempt to elucidate the relation between the vitamin D and vitamin B12, the present experiment was started.
