    B-12

    Question

    I have a bottle of B12, the ingredients say each ML contains 1200mg Hydroxocobalamin and 800mg of Cyanocobalamin.
    So 2000mg total per ml.
    I'm 195lb male, what would be a good loading and maintenance dose for me?

    Medically they do 1000iu once a month for non neurological reason

    This means my kidneys will get tore up then especially with all the water and protein i consume... I wouldnt do that much b vitamin but its worth a shot to see what kind of positive effects it may have on me!!

    B12 deficiency is very serious. It causes neurological problems which can be misdiagnosed as multiple sclerosis. Sounds like they caught it before it got that far, but it will still take time to reverse any damage.

    Insufficient stomach acid can make it difficult to get enough B12 from food. Vegetarians and especially vegans are often advised to take supplements. I found little tablets that go under the tongue, to be allowed to dissolve. The capillaries there can absorb B12.

    Oddly enough I never thought to ask anyone how long it can take to correct problems with deficiency once they start. As a vegetarian I was just concerned with preventing them.

    Back when I was a kid, I remember most older folks going in the Doctor's office and getting a B 12 shot from the nurses. This was curtailed when drug companies came up with many new pills that had to be sold. I think older citizens have suffered ever since.
