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 needed dietary components for healthy life. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation offers many Baton Rouge chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health issues you bring to your Baton Rouge chiropractic appointment.
Health is often reliant upon proper vitamin levels as it’s now recognized that a lack of them may affect 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 related to depression. The multifaceted nature of depression is interconnected with vitamin B. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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 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 Baton Rouge 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 very important. Specifically, a folate (B9) deficiency 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, 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. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a necessary micronutrient as humans cannot produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Baton Rouge 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 put us at risk for 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) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation encourages our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation and you, set a plan to improve them.
Why? A vitamin B12 deficiency brings on a range 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. 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 Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation to direct you to the required care for any B12 deficiency found.
