    I'm starting to wonder if I need to adjust my basic and active b12 supplements based on my body weight.

    When I do a Google search, it appears from what I can find that at least some supplements such as Vitamin D and Vitamin C are dosed according to body weight. And given that I currently weigh the same as 2 small females :lol: I might get better results with larger doses.

    Anyone know of a table/list with this information?

    No, unfortunately, but I have been wondering about this too as I have a friend who is 4X size and I wonder if any vitamins I recommend for him would do any good in liliputian doses???

    I would guess that they're all determined by body weight. Just like if you're larger or smaller you would need more or less calories.

    But as a practical method, I determine doses by self muscle testing.
