About This Test

B12

B12 and folic acid blood testing help doctors diagnose central nervous system disorders, anemia, and malabsorption syndromes. B12 and folic acid also play an important role in energy level, muscle strength, and memory. Because B12 and folate are derived solely from dietary intake, such as egg yolks, beef, poultry and fish, many people are deficient in these important vitamins.

Folate

Folate is a water-soluble vitamin that is vital for human growth and the formation of red and white blood cells. Otherwise referred to as Vitamin B-9, folate is a particularly crucial nutrient for pregnant women as it can prevent fetal birth defects of the brain and spine. Folate is used in synthesizing DNA and RNA and plays a crucial role in breaking down amino acids.
