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 essential dietary components for healthy life. (1) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Pensacola chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Pensacola chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center, a full host of Pensacola chiropractic care options exist to determine the source of your current concern and help resolve it.
Vitamins are important for health as it’s now known 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. 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center 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 many times take 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, as well. (2) Your Pensacola chiropractor understands diabetes well.
Vitamins promote cancer prevention, particularly in the early 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 hinder the onset of serious illnesses. (4)
Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a necessary micronutrient as we do not produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Pensacola 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 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. We can only get vitamin B12 by eating proteins from animals. Eaten vitamin B12 experiences an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center encourages our Pensacola chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they’re low, let us together, Pensacola Spinal Rehab 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 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. Fortunately, B12 supplementation helped all these patients. (6) Trust Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center to guide you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency found.
