Vitamin B supports 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 essential dietary components for healthy life. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Pflugerville chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Pflugerville chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Pflugerville Wellness Center, a full host of Pflugerville chiropractic care options exist to determine the source of your current concern and help resolve it.
Health is often reliant upon proper vitamin levels 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 impact memory, dementia and cognitive function. Shortages 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center pays attention to our patients carefully for any depression symptoms.
Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Pflugerville diabetic patients. 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, as well. (2) Your Pflugerville chiropractor understands diabetes well.
Vitamins promote cancer prevention, particularly in the early stages of the cancer development. Folate (B9), vitamins B2, B6, and B12 are very important. Specifically, a low level of folate (B9) messes with dendritic cell function which influences T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells trigger the immune responses in the body.) (3) B vitamins’ metabolism is significant, delivering compounds for DNA synthesis and repair processes. Researchers are excited about the potential vitamins like B present to hinder the onset of serious illnesses. (4)
Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a vital micronutrient as we can’t produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Pflugerville 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 put us at risk for coronary artery disease. We can only get vitamin B12 by eating proteins from animals. Eaten vitamin B12 undergoes an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) Pflugerville Wellness Center encourages our Pflugerville chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, Pflugerville Wellness Center and you, set a plan to raise them.
Why? A vitamin B12 deficiency brings on a range of neurological issues. Some are 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. Fortunately, B12 supplementation aided all these patients.
