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 needed dietary components for healthy life. (1) Palmer Chiropractic Center gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Lynchburg chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Lynchburg chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Palmer Chiropractic Center, a full host of Lynchburg chiropractic care options exist to determine the source of your current concern and return to you to your desired quality of life.
Health is often reliant upon proper vitamin levels as it’s now known that a lack of them may affect 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 associated with depression. The multifaceted nature of depression is interconnected with vitamin B. (1) Palmer 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 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 influence the vitamin B12 level, as well. (2) Your Lynchburg 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 quite important. Specifically, a folate (B9) deficiency affects dendritic cell function which influences T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells trigger the immune responses in the body.) (3) Metabolism of the B vitamins is important, 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 really important. Vitamin B12 is crucial to cell function. It’s a vital micronutrient as humans don’t make it. 15% of us Lynchburg folks who are older than 65 don’t have enough vitamin B12. If we have low levels of B12, neurological disorders and blood disorders may arise. 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. 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center encourages our Lynchburg chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they are low, let’s together, Palmer Chiropractic 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 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 Palmer Chiropractic Center to lead you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency found.
