This test is currently unavailable.
Your results will show your vitamin B6, B9, and B12 levels. B vitamins are important for proper function of the nervous system, immune system, and for normal development of red blood cells. Checking your B vitamin levels can help you understand if you're maintaining adequate levels of these important vitamins.
Vitamin B6 is commonly found in dairy products, fish, and meat. It keeps infections out of your body and helps red blood cells form (which carry oxygen through your body). If you are not getting enough B6, you may experience things like rash and skin issues, mood changes, frequent infections, and certain neurologic problems.
Vitamin B9, or folate, is commonly found in green vegetables, fruits, and nuts. It’s crucial for creating your DNA (pretty important)! Like B6, it is also necessary for the normal formation of red blood cells which carry your oxygen. If you don’t get enough B9, it can cause things like mouth sores and fatigue.
Vitamin B12 is found in meat, chicken, and fish, and it’s common to have a deficiency, especially as you age. It is important for the proper function of your nerves – especially the ones involved with your vision. On top of helping to maintain healthy eyesight, low levels of B12 can lead to fatigue, weakness, and mood changes. To all of our vegan and vegetarian friends: B12 is not present in plant-based foods, so checking your levels can be extremely important—something you can easily do at home with this B12 blood test.
