Food Intolerance Testing Uk are pleased to offer you a Vitamin B12 Health Check Test.
A Vitamin B12 Health Check Test to measure levels of vitamin B12, vital for healthy nerves, blood cells and DNA as well as your energy levels.
Vitamin B12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin that is found in virtually all meat products and certain algae such as seaweed. It helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and is also needed to make DNA, the genetic material in all cells.
Vitamin B12 is bound to the protein in food. Hydrochloric acid in the stomach releases B12 from protein during digestion. Once released, B12 combines with a substance called intrinsic factor (IF) before it is absorbed into the bloodstream. The human body stores several years’ worth of vitamin B12, so nutritional deficiency of this vitamin is rare. Elderly are the most at risk.
This test checks for healthy levels of vitamin B12 and flags any deficiency.
