Why the sudden focus on Vitamin B12 testing?
The human body needs vitamin B12 to make red blood cells, nerves, DNA, and carry out other functions. Like most vitamins, B12 can’t be made by the body. It has to be obtained from food or supplements.
Some people don’t consume enough vitamin B12 to meet their needs, and others cannot absorb enough, so vitamin B12 deficiency is relatively common.
