Vitamin B is good for blood, brain and body, the big 3 B’s for all of us [[targeltocation]] humans!
Not so long ago, vitamins weren’t always accepted as mainstream. Vitamins are really essential dietary components for healthy life. (1) Back And Neck Care Center understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Severna Park chiropractic patients and their influence on our Severna Park chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Back And Neck Care Center offers many Severna Park chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health concerns you bring to your Severna Park chiropractic appointment.
Health is often reliant upon proper vitamin levels as it’s now recognized that a lack of them may affect not just bodily issues but also psychiatric disorders. A vitamin B deficiency may influence memory, dementia and cognitive function. Deficiencies of B1, B3, B6, B9 and B12 – all vital for neuronal function – are associated with depression. Depression is complex, and vitamin B contributes to its complexity. (1) Back And Neck Care Center pays attention to our patients carefully for any depression symptoms.
Diabetic patients also get some special consideration when looking at vitamin B levels. Patients with diabetes are often prescribed metformin. This drug may reduce serum cyanocobalamin (B12) levels. Patient age, dosage, years of taking it, and time of the diabetes diagnosis likely play a role in the vitamin B12 level, also. (2) Your Severna Park chiropractor understands diabetes well.
Vitamins play a preventive role of cancer, particularly in the early stages of the cancer development. Folate (B9), vitamins B2, B6, and B12 are quite important. Specifically, a folate (B9) deficiency affects dendritic cell function which influences T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells trigger the immune responses in the body.) (3) Metabolism of the B vitamins is important, delivering compounds for DNA synthesis and repair processes. Researchers are enthusiastic about the potential vitamins like B offer to ward off serious illnesses. (4)
Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. Vitamin B12 is crucial to cell function. It’s a necessary micronutrient as we can’t produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Severna Park who are over 65 years of age must be aware of B12 deficiency; 15% of us are lacking! B12 deficiency results in blood and neurological issues. We may have a higher risk of coronary artery disease if our B12 levels are low.|Low B12 levels may also mean we have a higher risk of coronary artery disease. We can only get vitamin B12 by eating proteins from animals. When vitamin B12 is eaten, it goes through a complicated absorption and assimilation process. (5) Back And Neck Care Center encourages our Severna Park chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let us together, Back And Neck Care Center and you, set a plan to raise them.
Why? A low level of B12 brings on a range of neurological issues. These issues may be acute, subacute or chronic. Such neurological complications due to a vitamin B12 deficiency are subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord, a useless hand syndrome (related to the cervical spinal cord), and acute posterolateral cord syndrome which results in gait ataxia. Not one of these issues is a welcome condition. The good news is that the researchers who found these issues were able to help the patients with vitamin B12 supplementation. (6) Trust Back And Neck Care Center to lead you to the required care for any B12 deficiency discovered.
