Safe B12 Levels

Q. What are safe levels when taking B12 shots?


If you are receiving B12 shots, you will want to follow your B12 levels at least every four months and quarterly would be preferred. Your level would best be 1100 pg/ml, but, should not exceed this.

    I am a 74 year old vegan lady. I walk 5 days a week with a light weight vest.  I have osterporosis and was on fosamax for 5 years and off of it for 4 years .  My Doctor would like me back on fosamax (alendronate).
    The side effects of the medication concern me.  Is there more risk in taking the medication or in not taking the medication??

    If you want strong bones, you need strong muscles.  Therefore, I recommend you cancel your cable.  Then, use that money to buy a gym membership.  Then, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, begin using the weights machines.  Start with the lightest weights possible and gradually increase weight every four weeks.  Work all areas of the body every workout, but, in an alternating fashion, so each muscle group texts while you choose a machine to work out the next muscle group.  Take vitamin D3 4000IU daily, lifelong.  Chew vitamin B12 1000mcg daily, lifelong.  During two or three 8oz glasses of fortified, unsweetened soy or almond milk daily. Increase intake of dark leafy greens, beans, and organic bell peppers and organic apples.  Use organic tomato purée and tomato paste freely.

    I have been taking fat burner injections once weekly and 5000mcg of B-12 daily (soundcloud downloader). It has been 2 weeks and I have lost 15 lbs. Needless to say I am thrilled. It works!
