Fort Wayne Chiropractic Discussion of Vitamin B for Brain02/14/2017Vitamin 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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients and their influence on our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc, a full host of Fort Wayne 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 known 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. 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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc carefully listens to our patients for any sign of depression. Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Fort Wayne 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 influence the vitamin B12 level, too. (2) Your Fort Wayne 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 impacts T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells activate the immune responses in the body.) (3) B vitamins’ metabolism is significant, delivering compounds for DNA synthesis and repair processes. Researchers are excited about the potential vitamins like B present for the prevention of serious illnesses. (4) Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a necessary micronutrient as humans cannot produce it. 15% of us Fort Wayne 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 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. When vitamin B12 is eaten, it goes through a complicated absorption and assimilation process. (5) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc encourages our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they are low, let us together, Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc and you, make a plan to improve them. Why? A vitamin B12 deficiency causes a variety of neurological issues. Some are 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 aided all these patients. (6) Trust Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc to guide you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency revealed.
