Vitamin B supports blood, brain and body, the big 3 B’s for all of us [[targeltocation]] humans!
Not so long ago, vitamins were not always considered that important. Vitamins are really essential dietary components for healthy life. (1) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our West Des Moines chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our West Des Moines chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Executive Chiropractic of Iowa, a full host of West Des Moines chiropractic care options exist to determine the source of your current concern and help resolve it.
Health is often reliant upon proper vitamin levels as it is 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. 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) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa 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 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, also. (2) Your West Des Moines chiropractor understands diabetes well.
Vitamins promote cancer prevention, 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) B vitamins’ metabolism is significant, delivering compounds for DNA synthesis and repair processes. Researchers are excited about the potential vitamins like B present for the prevention 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 West Des Moines 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 have a higher risk of 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) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa encourages our West Des Moines chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they are low, let us together, Executive Chiropractic of Iowa and you, make a plan to raise them.
Why? A vitamin B12 deficiency 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. The good news is that the researchers who found these issues were able to help the patients with vitamin B12 supplementation. (6) Trust Executive Chiropractic of Iowa to direct you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency uncovered.
