How much is too much B-12? Does taking B-12 pills help one have more energy?

B12 deficiency may occur due to inadequate dietary intake or mal-absorption problems. This can affect memory, lead to anemia and also contribute to neuropathy. Vitamin B12 supplementation is helpful when you are found to be low in B12. A total B50 complex (which combines all the B vitamins) may be helpful to increase energy levels and mood.
