Vitamin B promotes healthy blood, brain and body, the big 3 B’s for all of us [[targeltocation]] humans!
Not so long ago, vitamins were not always considered that important. Vitamins are really necessary dietary components for healthy life. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our New Roads chiropractic patients and their influence on our New Roads chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At New Roads Chiropractic Center, a full host of New Roads chiropractic care options exist to determine the source of your current concern and return to you to your desired quality of life.
Vitamins are important for health as it is now recognized that a deficiency 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. The multifaceted nature of depression is interconnected with vitamin B. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center carefully listens to our patients for any sign of depression.
Diabetic patients also get some special consideration when looking at vitamin B levels. Patients with diabetes many times take 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, as well. (2) Your New Roads 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 low level of folate (B9) messes with dendritic cell function which influences T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells activate the immune responses in the body.) (3) Metabolism of the B vitamins is important, providing compounds for DNA synthesis and repair processes. Researchers are excited about the potential vitamins like B offer to hinder the onset of serious illnesses. (4)
Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s an essential micronutrient as we can’t produce it. 15% of us New Roads folks who are older than 65 don’t have enough vitamin B12. 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 put us at risk for 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) New Roads Chiropractic Center encourages our New Roads chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they are low, let’s together, New Roads Chiropractic Center and you, set a plan to raise them.
Why? Lack of vitamin B12 brings on a range of neurological issues. Some are acute, subacute or chronic. Such neurological complications stemming from 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 New Roads Chiropractic Center to direct you to the required care for any B12 deficiency uncovered.
