Just googles it this is what I got


What is the Recommended Dietary Allowance for vitamin B12 for adults?
The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) is the average daily dietary intake level that is sufficient to meet the nutrient requirements of nearly all (97 to 98 percent) healthy individuals in each life-stage and gender group (7). The 1998 RDAs for vitamin B12 (in micrograms) for adults (7) are:

Life-Stage *Men *Women *Pregnancy *Lactation
Ages 19+ 2.4 mcg 2.4 mcg * *
All ages * * 2.6 mcg * 2.8 mcg
Results of two national surveys, the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III-1988-91) (8) and the Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals (CSFII 1994-96) (7) found that most adult men and women consume recommended amounts of vitamin B12 (6-8).

You can't if it's more than five mins old. Not to worry, people will read the whole thread.

And if they do take 400mg they will be really happy lol

Just a quick note - I take Niacin for my cholesterol (under my doctors care).

You can (at least here in the US) find flush-free versions of higher dosages. It keeps the problems down. I can't take the higher dosages without it being flush-free.

Whether the B Vitamins help depend upon whether you are low in these vitamins ...

Here's a link to the Mayo Clinic's article on the correlation between depression and B Vitamins

I haven't heard that term before, but I think you mean "timed-released". That way the dosage is spread over a number of hours, and not all at once.

How much B vitamins are you supposed to take? What I don't get is why there's a huge difference in the amount of vitamins in different pills. For example B12, the recommended daily intake is 2-3 mcg, B-complex vitamins have 10mcg, but there are some bottles with 1500 mcg! I saw a site saying you need 1000 mcg of B12 and 50mg of B6 while taking SAM-e, and other sites that recommend as much as 2000 mcg of B12 daily for depression. I'm skeptical as to why someone would need that much B-vitamins.
