Kind of. I used to take a specific supplement that had an extreme amount (literally more than 30 days RDA per pill). The body won't absorb such a ridiculous amount, but regular supplementation can dramatically boost the body's B12 reserves.
However, those pills made me feel funny. Itchy skin, hot flashes, and a weird twitching energy, as if I'd taken a huge dose of caffeine that only kicked in sporadically. So I started only taking them for a few days a month.
Now, I don't take them at all. I get my B12 from dairy products, unfertilized eggs, fortified breads/cereals, etc. In fact, a lot of vegan and vegetarian processed products have B12 added to them, like my chocolate soy milk and some of those fake meat products. (note: B12 is synthesized by bacteria, not the meat sources it's usually associated with.)
