The B12 Society is a Scottish registered charity (SC046066) first launched in September 2015. We are all volunteers and began as a patient group with four founder members who still serve as trustees, each taking our own role as committee members working together to support those who experience vitamin B12 deficiencies, and provide accurate up-to-date education on the condition for health professionals.
We have now grown, and are proud to have health professionals and other patient volunteers making up our associate committee.
We keep abreast of the latest studies and research on vitamin B12, and host an online support group called Vitamin B12 Wake Up helping and advising people who have, or think they may have, the condition.
With over 1K new members joining us every month, we are the world largest vitamin B12 deficiency support group, so have a huge resource to conduct surveys from and collect anecdotal evidence from a range of different people from all corners of the globe. With an increasing number of health professionals joining this group, the demand for our advisory services is also growing.
Our aim is to create and provide quality, up-to-date training on vitamin B12 deficiencies for health professionals and public groups in the United Kingdom. Thus ensuring the most effective treatment plans, and best possible outcome for B12 deficiency and Pernicious Anaemia patients.

OUR STORIES - The Committee
Watch this space
My symptoms were getting so bad, and very quickly, that we bypassed the normal loading dose regime and went for it!
Within 4 weeks I was almost back to normal.
I am ashamed to say, I allowed myself to believe his GP when she made such a light thing of what was wrong.
The change in my husband was astonishing.
