How Vitamin B12 supplements work and their intakes
B12 supplements are bacterially synthesized and very safe. Therefore, the most appropriate thing to do is to choose cyanocobalamin, since it is the most studied form of this vitamin in terms of dosage.
The normal thing is that in maintenance doses, not of therapies issued by doctors, there are 2 different options
- 2 1000mcg weekly doses
- 1 Weekly dose of 2000 mcg
