Vitamin B promotes healthy blood, brain and body, the big 3 B’s for all of us [[targeltocation]] humans!
Not so long ago, vitamins weren’t always accepted as mainstream. Vitamins are really essential dietary components for healthy life. (1) Johnson Chiropractic gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Richmond chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Richmond chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Johnson Chiropractic, a full host of Richmond chiropractic care options are available to determine the source of your current concern and return to you to your desired quality of life.
Health is often reliant upon proper vitamin levels as it’s now known that a deficiency of them may affect 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) Johnson Chiropractic 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, too. (2) Your Richmond chiropractor understands diabetes well.
Vitamins play a preventive role of cancer, particularly in the early stages of the cancer development. Folate (B9), vitamins B2, B6, and B12 are quite important. Specifically, a low level of folate (B9) affects dendritic cell function which impacts T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells activate the immune responses in the body.) (3) B vitamins’ metabolism is significant, 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. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s an essential micronutrient as humans cannot produce it. 15% of us Richmond 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 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) Johnson Chiropractic encourages our Richmond chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they’re low, let us together, Johnson Chiropractic and you, set a plan to raise them.
Why? Lack of vitamin B12 causes a variety of neurological issues. Some are 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 Johnson Chiropractic to direct you to the required care for any B12 deficiency discovered.
