This comprehensive assessment will measure the body’s B vitamin levels across vitamin B1, B2, B6, B9 and B12. The body requires adequate vitamin B to support a range of essential processes and systems, and detecting potential deficiencies can therefore note the need for supplementation to boost general wellbeing.
Vitamin B1 is used to turn food into cellular energy and can prevent fatigue. This vitamin is also responsible for the synthesis of DNA and RNA.
Vitamin B2 acts as a critical building block for healthy growth and development. Also a contributor to cellular energy production, B2 supports the body’s antioxidant activity.
Vitamin B6 is involved in over 100 cellular reactions around the body to keep the body functioning at its best.
Vitamin B9 is essential for DNA and red blood cell synthesis, and works to metabolise amino acids.
Vitamin B12 contributes to cellular energy, DNA and red blood cell synthesis, and supports a healthy nervous system.
