Please be aware, this test uses a wet blood sample, which means you will be required to fill a small vial with a few drops of blood.
If you’re feeling tired, low on energy or your memory is not as sharp as it used to be, you may need to check your vitamin B12 levels. Vital for the production of red blood cells, B12 supports the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and normal psychological function.
This test checks your active B12 levels as this is considered the more accurate way to measure your body’s access to available vitamin B12 and the best early indicator of a deficiency.
Your results will be made available through your own personal online dashboard and a member of the BetterYou team will follow up with your bespoke supplementation plan within 2 working days.
|Product size:||Single use|
|Biomarkers tested:||Active B12|
Importance of checking your B12 levels
Our active vitamin B12 test enables you to quickly identify the current B12 levels available for your body to use rather than your total B12 levels. It will give you a clear insight into any risk of B12 deficiency.
By knowing your results and getting our bespoke supplementation plan, you can make the necessary lifestyle modifications to ensure your levels remain optimal and track your levels over time using our online portal.
Who needs it
While the test is suitable for all adults and testing for B12 is advised if you’re concerned you’re not getting enough, there are certain groups of people that may be more likely to be deficient and should strongly consider testing their levels. These include:
- Vegans and Vegetarians
- Those with malabsorption issues
- Pernicious anaemia sufferers
- Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers
