McHenry Chiropractic Discussion of Vitamin B for Brain

Vitamin B is good for 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) Spengel Chiropractic understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our McHenry chiropractic patients and their influence on our McHenry chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Spengel Chiropractic offers many McHenry chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health issues you bring to your McHenry chiropractic appointment.

Health is often reliant upon proper vitamin levels as it is now recognized that a lack 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. 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) Spengel Chiropractic pays attention to our patients carefully for any depression symptoms.

Another subset of patient to check B levels in are McHenry 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, also. (2) Your McHenry 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 very 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 excited about the potential vitamins like B present to hinder the onset of serious illnesses. (4)

Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a vital micronutrient as humans don’t make it. Statistics say that those of us in McHenry 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 be at risk for 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) Spengel Chiropractic encourages our McHenry chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let us together, Spengel Chiropractic and you, make a plan to raise 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. 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 Spengel Chiropractic to direct you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency revealed.
