Auburn Chiropractic Discussion of Vitamin B for Brain

Vitamin B promotes healthy 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 necessary dietary components for healthy life. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Auburn chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Auburn chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. offers many Auburn chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health issues you bring to your Auburn chiropractic appointment.

Vitamins are important for health as it is now known that a lack 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) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. pays attention to our patients carefully for any depression symptoms.

Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Auburn diabetic patients. 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 Auburn chiropractor understands diabetes well.

Vitamins play a preventive role of cancer, 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 activate the immune responses in the body.) (3) Metabolism of the B vitamins is important, delivering compounds for DNA synthesis and repair processes. Researchers are enthusiastic about the potential vitamins like B present for the prevention of serious illnesses. (4)

Vitamin B12 itself is also really important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a vital micronutrient as humans don’t make it. Statistics say that those of us in Auburn 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. Vitamin B12 has to be obtained by eating animal proteins. Eaten vitamin B12 experiences an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. encourages our Auburn chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. and you, set a plan to improve them.

Why? A vitamin B12 deficiency causes a variety 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. The good news is that the researchers who found these issues were able to help the patients with vitamin B12 supplementation. (6) Trust Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. to guide you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency uncovered.
