Vitamin B12 (Active) Test Test
Check your active vitamin B12 levels with our quick, easy-to-use home blood test kit. You take a simple finger prick test and we'll analyse your sample at one of our UKAS accredited labs in the UK.
This B12 blood test kit measures the active form of B12 specifically (as opposed to total B12). This is the most accurate way to measure your available level of vitamin B12 and is the best early indicator of any possible deficiency.
Vitamin B12 (along with folate) plays an essential role in the formation of red blood cells and also has an important role to play in nerve health. The human body does not produce its own vitamin B12 , so it has to be absorbed through diet.
Low levels of this essential vitamin can leave you feeling tired and weak while prolonged deficiency can also lead to anaemia.
Our test enables you to check your own active B12 levels quickly, easily and affordably. Simply send your sample direct to our UKAS accredited lab and your accurate result will be available within 48hrs on our secure digital dashboard.
