Manahawkin 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 sometimes were derided as to their importance. Vitamins are really essential dietary components for healthy life. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Manahawkin chiropractic patients and their influence on our Manahawkin chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Manahawkin Chiropractic Center, a full host of Manahawkin chiropractic care options are available to determine the source of your current concern and return to you to your desired quality of life.

Vitamins are important for health as it is 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. Shortages of B1, B3, B6, B9 and B12 – all vital for neuronal function – are associated with depression. The multifaceted nature of depression is interconnected with vitamin B. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center pays attention to our patients carefully for any depression symptoms.

Diabetic patients also get some special consideration when looking at vitamin B levels. 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 Manahawkin 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 rather important. Specifically, a low level of folate (B9) affects dendritic cell function which impacts T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells trigger 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 offer to ward off serious illnesses. (4)

Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. Vitamin B12 is crucial to cell function. It’s a vital micronutrient as humans cannot produce it. 15% of us Manahawkin 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. Vitamin B12 has to be obtained by eating animal proteins. When vitamin B12 is eaten, it goes through a complicated absorption and assimilation process. (5) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center encourages our Manahawkin chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center and you, make 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 helped all these patients. (6) Trust Manahawkin Chiropractic Center to direct you to the required care for any B12 deficiency discovered.
