St. Francisville Chiropractic Discussion of Vitamin B for Brain

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 sometimes were derided as to their importance. Vitamins are really essential dietary components for healthy life. (1) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our St. Francisville chiropractic patients and their influence on our St. Francisville chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville offers many St. Francisville chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health issues you bring to your St. Francisville chiropractic appointment.

Vitamins are important for health as it is now known 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. Shortages 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) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville 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 play a role in the vitamin B12 level, too. (2) Your St. Francisville chiropractor understands diabetes well.

Vitamins promote cancer prevention, particularly in the initial stages of the cancer development. Folate (B9), vitamins B2, B6, and B12 are very important. Specifically, a folate (B9) deficiency messes with dendritic cell function which impacts T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells trigger 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 offer to ward off serious illnesses. (4)

Vitamin B12 itself is also really important. Vitamin B12 is crucial to cell function. It’s an essential micronutrient as humans cannot produce it. 15% of us St. Francisville 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. Vitamin B12 has to be obtained by eating animal proteins. Eaten vitamin B12 undergoes an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville encourages our St. Francisville chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they are low, let us together, Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville and you, set 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 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. (6) Trust Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville to guide you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency uncovered.
