B Vitamins.....

Vitamin B's  -Bloods4you

There are a few different B Vitamins, these are the nutrients that our bodies require in small amounts, for our metabolism, energy production, skin, bone, muscle, organs and our nervous systems.

B vitamin blood tests measure these specific compounds in our blood, to help evaluate a persons nutritional status.

B vitamins are water-soluble, only small amounts are stored in our bodies, they are also obtained from foods, that are rich in B vitamins or from supplements.

Pregnant women with a limited diet, could be at an increased risk for B vitamin deficiencies, as well as her babies.

Having a private Vitamin B blood test, may be useful when a person has a condition that puts them at risk for a deficiency, for example:-


chronic Alcoholics
