Vitamin B promotes healthy 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 Spine Care Centre understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Vancouver chiropractic patients and their influence on our Vancouver chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Vancouver Spine Care Centre, a full host of Vancouver chiropractic care options are available to determine the source of your current concern and help resolve it.
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. 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) Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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, too. (2) Your Vancouver 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 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) Metabolism of the B vitamins is important, providing 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. Vitamin B12 is crucial to cell function. It’s a necessary micronutrient as we can’t produce it. 15% of us Vancouver 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) Vancouver Spine Care Centre encourages our Vancouver chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, Vancouver Spine Care Centre and you, set 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 Spine Care Centre to guide you to the required care for any B12 deficiency uncovered.
