Have your energy levels been lower lately?

Are you feeling more tired than usual?

It’s possible that Vitamin B12 deficiency may be the cause. Our Vitamin B12 test will let you know whether your levels of this essential nutrient are too low, which may be contributing to your symptoms.

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin that supports neurological function, DNA production and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system. It also helps to energise you, regulate your mood and generate red blood cells which carry oxygen around the body. In pregnancy, Vitamin B12 contributes to foetal development and maturation of the baby’s nervous system.

You should consider getting tested if you:

  • You are suffering from chronic fatigue
  • You are following a plant-based diet
  • You are planning on becoming pregnant
  • You are over the age of 50
  • You suffer from Crohn’s disease
  • You suffer from Coeliac disease
  • You are deficient in the intrinsic factor, a glycoprotein which plays an important role in absorbing vitamin B12

This test should be taken while fasting, or in other words, before you have eaten or drank anything that morning (other than water).
