Vitamin B promotes healthy 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 necessary dietary components for healthy life. (1) Apple Country Chiropractic understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Williamson chiropractic patients and their influence on our Williamson chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Apple Country Chiropractic offers many Williamson chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health issues you bring to your Williamson chiropractic appointment.
Vitamins are important for health as it’s 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. Depression is complex, and vitamin B contributes to its complexity. (1) Apple Country 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 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 Williamson 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 rather important. Specifically, a folate (B9) deficiency 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 excited 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 we do not produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Williamson 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) Apple Country Chiropractic encourages our Williamson chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let us together, Apple Country Chiropractic and you, set a plan to raise them.
Why? A vitamin B12 deficiency brings on a range of neurological issues. These issues may be 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 Apple Country Chiropractic to direct you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency found.
