Malverne 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) Malverne Health & Wellness gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Malverne chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Malverne chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Malverne Health & Wellness, a full host of Malverne 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’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 influence memory, dementia and cognitive function. Deficiencies of B1, B3, B6, B9 and B12 – all vital for neuronal function – are related to depression. Depression is complex, and vitamin B contributes to its complexity. (1) Malverne Health & Wellness pays attention to our patients carefully for any depression symptoms.

Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Malverne 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 play a role in the vitamin B12 level, as well. (2) Your Malverne 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 quite important. Specifically, a low level of folate (B9) affects dendritic cell function which influences T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells trigger the immune responses in the body.) (3) B vitamins’ metabolism is significant, providing 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. Vitamin B12 is crucial to cell function. It’s a vital micronutrient as we do not produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Malverne 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. When vitamin B12 is eaten, it goes through a complicated absorption and assimilation process. (5) Malverne Health & Wellness encourages our Malverne chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let us together, Malverne Health & Wellness and you, set a plan to improve 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. None of these issues is appealing. Fortunately, B12 supplementation aided all these patients. (6) Trust Malverne Health & Wellness to guide you to the required care for any B12 deficiency revealed.
