Plymouth 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 essential dietary components for healthy life. (1) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Plymouth chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Plymouth chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology, a full host of Plymouth 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 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 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) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology carefully listens to our patients for any sign of depression.

Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Plymouth 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 influence the vitamin B12 level, too. (2) Your Plymouth 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 folate (B9) deficiency messes with dendritic cell function which influences T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells activate 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 hinder the onset of serious illnesses. (4)

Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. Vitamin B12 is crucial to cell function. It’s an essential micronutrient as humans cannot produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Plymouth 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) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology encourages our Plymouth chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they are low, let’s together, Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology 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 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. Fortunately, B12 supplementation helped all these patients. (6) Trust Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology to lead you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency discovered.
