Vitamin B supports 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) Young Chiropractic gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Easley chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Easley chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Young Chiropractic offers many Easley chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health issues you bring to your Easley chiropractic appointment.
Health is often reliant upon proper vitamin levels as it is now known 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 related to depression. Depression is complex, and vitamin B contributes to its complexity. (1) Young Chiropractic 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 many times take metformin. This drug may lower serum cyanocobalamin (B12) levels. Patient age, dosage, years of taking it, and time of the diabetes diagnosis likely influence the vitamin B12 level, also. (2) Your Easley chiropractor understands diabetes well.
Vitamins play a preventive role of cancer, particularly in the initial stages of the cancer development. Folate (B9), vitamins B2, B6, and B12 are quite important. Specifically, a low level of folate (B9) messes with dendritic cell function which impacts T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells activate the immune responses in the body.) (3) B vitamins’ metabolism is significant, delivering compounds for DNA synthesis and repair processes. Researchers are enthusiastic about the potential vitamins like B present to ward off serious illnesses. (4)
Vitamin B12 itself is also really important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a vital micronutrient as humans don’t make it. Statistics say that those of us in Easley 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) Young Chiropractic encourages our Easley chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let us together, Young Chiropractic and you, make a plan to raise them.
Why? A low level of B12 causes a variety 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 Young Chiropractic to lead you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency revealed.
