B12 recommended amount

My husband’s doctor said to cut back on the amount of B12 he takes (1500 mcg) – we are both vegan, and take that much each day. I just looked online, and most of the recommendations I saw, said to take 2.4 mcg???? Does anyone know?

Dr E advises 500mcg if you are under age 70, or 1000 if you are 70+. Please, everyone, do not start citing other recommendations as this group focuses on Dr E’s preferences.

The book is 10 years old. A few things have changed, including the B12 recommendation.

There were changes from the first printing of the book as well, so if anyone has the first printing, disregard the supplement section and go by this:
1. Vitamin B12…..1000mcg for those over 70yo
(Note….Meghan Brady spoke to Dr. Esselstyn and he said 50.

Esselstyn and Greger are in sync in many areas and not in others, such as nuts. Dr. Greger’s recommendations are based on studies. There are no studies to date on folks eating WFPBNO minimally processed minimal salt and sugar

You absolutely need to have your levels checked via a blood panel to see where you stand. Too much can be just as bad as too little and everyone’s body absorbs nutrients differently.
