B12 Recommendations for All Ages
Two people have recently asked me for B12 recommendations for children, so I created a table in which I extrapolated the adult recommendations to children.
You’ll notice a range in the table for both one and two doses per day; anywhere within that range will be a good amount to take to maximize B12 status. Note that the RDA is to prevent overt B12 deficiency, not to minimize homocysteine levels. My recommendations are intended to be enough B12 to minimize homocysteine.
