I'm a lifelong vegan, was told that I should be taking vitamin B12 supplements; i can't get this from anything plant based. But what dosage, please?

In brief: 1000 mcg methylcob.

A common dosage is 1000 mcg.
I advise the methylcobalamin form if you can find it. B12 is usually absorbed better when taken in a sublingual form. See http://bit.Ly/1607tg3 ; http://www.Naturalnews.Com/027045_vitamin_b12_cyanocobalamin_methylcobalamin.Html ; http://www.Mend.Net/cgh/methylcobalamin.Html.
