    Inreased energy levels and increased appatite are the two biggest benefits. There are others, do a google search on b-12 and you can read them for yourself.

    Personally?
    Increased energy.
    Increased pump
    More vascularity (if bodyfat is low... I usually use b-12 on contest day)
    Increased appetite
    and better food utilisation

    Does oral b-12 work almost as good as injectable? How often would you take either one when doing a cycle?

    Oral dosages yield about 2%. Do IM and it works GREAT! I do 1000mcg a day and love it.

    hehe...

    b12 has to bind to something called intrinsic factor in the stomach to be absorbed... therefore you can only absorb a certain amount orally.

    that being said, if you inject it there's no ceiling.

    i thought it was bunk but tried it 2 months ago and there has been no turning back!

    Yes it's good. Injection is better. Some people don't respond much to oral.
    But as far as injection doses, I've never seen higher than 2000mcgs per day.
    And your body will only absorb so much orally or injected. The excess is excreted in the urine.

    Vitamin B12

    Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin for its cobalt content, is one vitamin that is often lacking in strict vegetarian diets as it is found almost exclusively in animal products. It works in conjunction with the other B vitamins, especially folate / folic acid, and needs calcium for proper functioning. As you age, your need for vitamin B12 increases.

    Natural Food Sources
    Beef, blue cheese, cottage cheese, clams, dairy products, egg, fish, liverwurst, oysters, Swiss cheese.

    Main Functions
    Vitamin B12 helps in red blood cell formation and making neural sheaths. It increases energy, promotes growth, keeps your mind sharp as you age, helps the immune system work and can prevent heart disease. Vitamin B12 shots are often given to treat pernicious anemia and may be effective in treating Alzheimer's disease.

    Deficiency Symptoms
    Vitamin B12 is stored in the liver so it may take years for a serious deficiency to manifest. Pernicious anemia, sore mouth and tongue, weakness, mental disorders, insomnia, tingling sensations, body odor, menstrual disturbances and neuritis are among deficiency symptoms. Severe vitamin B12 deficiency may result in spinal chord degeneration and paralysis.

    Toxicity Symptoms
    There is a very low incidence of vitamin B12 toxicity even in doses of 1000 mcg per day - any excess is excreted in urine. If taken with large doses of vitamin C, it may cause nosebleed, ear bleeding or dry mouth.
