    Seriously, 1000 (iu/mcg?) taken ingested will not give you anything as absorption is low. It has to be at least taken sublingually as a lozenge for an hour or more. :Retro smile:

    Please also don't take cyanocobalamin, the typical type of B12 found in most vitamins. The thread 'B-12 The hidden Story' talks about why other forms of B12 are better: methylcobalamin, hydroxocobalamin and adenosylcobalamin. It's worth looking into! Lots of use are seeing some improvements on Freddd's and RichVanK's protocols.

    The other side.
    Surely this is really, really old news?

    B12 deficiency is a known risk factor for cognitive issues resulting from organic brain changes, otherwise known as dementia.

    I'm slightly puzzled as to why a new study has been published on it, given it's accepted as medical fact anyway.

    Also cyanocobalamin, particularly in high doses, can be dangerous. If your detox cycle isn't working properly you can get cyanide poisoning. It happened to a member of this forum.

    Oops! My mistake. It's not B12 but D.
