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 were not always considered that important. Vitamins are really needed dietary components for healthy life. (1) Chiropractic Associates understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Preston chiropractic patients and their influence on our Preston chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Chiropractic Associates offers many Preston chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health concerns you bring to your Preston chiropractic appointment.
Vitamins are important for health as it is now recognized that a deficiency of them may be linked to 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. The multifaceted nature of depression is interconnected with vitamin B. (1) Chiropractic Associates 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 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 Preston 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 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 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 an essential micronutrient as we can’t produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Preston 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 be at risk for 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) Chiropractic Associates encourages our Preston chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they are low, let us together, Chiropractic Associates and you, make a plan to improve them.
Why? A vitamin B12 deficiency 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. None of these issues is appealing. Fortunately, B12 supplementation helped all these patients. (6) Trust Chiropractic Associates to lead you to the required care for any B12 deficiency found.
