Brooks 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 sometimes were derided as to their importance. Vitamins are really needed dietary components for healthy life. (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Brooks chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Brooks chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Soft Health and Healing Clinic, a full host of Brooks 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 recognized that a deficiency of them may affect 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 related to depression. Depression is complex, and vitamin B contributes to its complexity. (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic carefully listens to our patients for any sign of depression.

Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Brooks diabetic patients. Patients with diabetes are often prescribed 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, also. (2) Your Brooks chiropractor understands diabetes well.

Vitamins play a preventive role of cancer, particularly in the initial stages of the cancer development. Folate (B9), vitamins B2, B6, and B12 are quite important. Specifically, a folate (B9) deficiency affects 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 offer for the prevention of serious illnesses. (4)

Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. Vitamin B12 is crucial to cell function. It’s an essential micronutrient as humans don’t make it. 15% of us Brooks folks who are older than 65 don’t have enough vitamin B12. 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. Vitamin B12 has to be obtained by eating animal proteins. When vitamin B12 is eaten, it goes through a complicated absorption and assimilation process. (5) Soft Health and Healing Clinic encourages our Brooks chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they are low, let’s together, Soft Health and Healing Clinic and you, make 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 helped all these patients. (6) Trust Soft Health and Healing Clinic to guide you to the required care for any B12 deficiency found.
