Vitamin B supports 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) Cross Chiropractic Center understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Cross Chiropractic Center, a full host of Sandy Springs 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’s now recognized that a lack of them may be linked to not just bodily issues but also psychiatric disorders. A vitamin B deficiency may impact memory, dementia and cognitive function. Deficiencies of B1, B3, B6, B9 and B12 – all vital for neuronal function – are associated with depression. Depression is complex, and vitamin B contributes to its complexity. (1) Cross 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 are often prescribed 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 Sandy Springs 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 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) B vitamins’ metabolism is significant, delivering compounds for DNA synthesis and repair processes. Researchers are excited about the potential vitamins like B offer to ward off serious illnesses. (4)
Vitamin B12 itself is also quite 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 Sandy Springs 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 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. When vitamin B12 is eaten, it goes through a complicated absorption and assimilation process. (5) Cross Chiropractic Center encourages our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they are low, let us together, Cross Chiropractic Center and you, set a plan to improve them.
Why? A low level of B12 causes a variety 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. None of these issues is appealing. The good news is that the researchers who found these issues were able to help the patients with vitamin B12 supplementation. (6) Trust Cross Chiropractic Center to lead you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency uncovered.
