Vancouver 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 were not always considered that important. Vitamins are really needed dietary components for healthy life. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Vancouver chiropractic patients and their influence on our Vancouver chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Vancouver Disc Centers offers many Vancouver chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health concerns you bring to your Vancouver chiropractic appointment.

Vitamins are important for health 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) Vancouver Disc Centers 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 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, as well. (2) Your Vancouver 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 quite important. Specifically, a folate (B9) deficiency messes with dendritic cell function which influences 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 present to ward off serious illnesses. (4)

Vitamin B12 itself is also really important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a necessary micronutrient as we can’t produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Vancouver 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 put us at risk for coronary artery disease. Vitamin B12 has to be obtained by eating animal proteins. Eaten vitamin B12 undergoes an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) Vancouver Disc Centers encourages our Vancouver chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, Vancouver Disc Centers and you, make a plan to improve them.

Why? Lack of vitamin B12 brings on a range 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. The good news is that the researchers who found these issues were able to help the patients with vitamin B12 supplementation. (6) Trust Vancouver Disc Centers to lead you to the required care for any B12 deficiency discovered.
