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) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Sitka chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Sitka chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka, a full host of Sitka 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’s now recognized 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) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka pays attention to our patients carefully for any depression symptoms.
Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Sitka 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 Sitka chiropractor understands diabetes well.
Vitamins play a preventive role of cancer, particularly in the early stages of the cancer development. Folate (B9), vitamins B2, B6, and B12 are quite important. Specifically, a low level of folate (B9) affects dendritic cell function which impacts T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells activate the immune responses in the body.) (3) Metabolism of the B vitamins is important, providing 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 an essential micronutrient as humans don’t make it. 15% of us Sitka 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 have a higher risk of 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) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka encourages our Sitka chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they are low, let us together, Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka and you, set a plan to raise them.
Why? Lack of vitamin B12 causes a variety of neurological issues. These issues may be 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.
