Vitamin B12 Home Test Kit by Better2Know

Vitamin B12 plays an essential role in the production of red blood cells and DNA, as well as the proper functioning of your nervous system. It plays a role in energy production, working with enzymes to help process carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Vitamin B12 is naturally found in animal based foods including meats, fish, poultry, eggs and diary.

Unfortunately, a B12 deficiency is common and you’re at risk if you don’t get enough from your diet or aren’t able to absorb enough from the food you eat.

Who Should Take The Test

Symptoms of a vitamin B12 deficiency include fatigue, sensations of pins and needles, mouth sores, dizziness, mood changes, memory loss and depression. Those who are more at risk include vegans, heavy drinkers, over 50s, and people with digestive problems. Testing is so important! It’s always Better2Know.

What Is The Home Testing Process?

When you book a Home Test Kit test with us, you will receive your test kit and a PIN code that does not identify any of your personal details. The Vitamin B12 home test requires a small blood sample. This is collected using a finger prick lancet. It is also suitable if you are afraid of needles. Your home testing kit will contain a gold-topped blood collection tube, three lancets, wipes, a pathology form and a prepaid envelope for you to return your sample. Once you have performed your test, pop the blood sample into the postage-paid envelope and send it directly to our accredited UKAS laboratory for analysis.

Foods which are a good source of Vitamin B12 include eggs, milk, cheese and fish, particularly shellfish.
