Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic Discussion of Vitamin B for Brain

Vitamin B supports 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) Spinal Care Clinic understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Spinal Care Clinic offers many Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health concerns you bring to your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic appointment.

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 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) Spinal Care Clinic carefully listens to our patients for any sign of depression.

Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Burlington and Hamilton 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 influence the vitamin B12 level, also. (2) Your Burlington and Hamilton 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 low level of folate (B9) messes with dendritic cell function which impacts T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells trigger 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 really important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a vital micronutrient as we can’t produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Burlington and Hamilton who are over 65 years of age must be aware of B12 deficiency; 15% of us are lacking! 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. We can only get vitamin B12 by eating proteins from animals. Eaten vitamin B12 experiences an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) Spinal Care Clinic encourages our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they are low, let’s together, Spinal Care Clinic and you, make 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. 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 Spinal Care Clinic to guide you to the required care for any B12 deficiency uncovered.
