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 weren’t always accepted as mainstream. Vitamins are really needed dietary components for healthy life. (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Oxford chiropractic patients and their influence on our Oxford chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Satterwhite Chiropractic, a full host of Oxford 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 lack of them may affect not just bodily issues but also psychiatric disorders. A vitamin B deficiency may impact 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) Satterwhite 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 lower serum cyanocobalamin (B12) levels. Patient age, dosage, years of taking it, and time of the diabetes diagnosis likely influence the vitamin B12 level, also. (2) Your Oxford 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 very important. Specifically, a folate (B9) deficiency affects dendritic cell function which influences T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells activate 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 for the prevention of serious illnesses. (4)
Vitamin B12 itself is also really important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a necessary micronutrient as we do not produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Oxford 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 put us at risk for 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) Satterwhite Chiropractic encourages our Oxford chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they are low, let us together, Satterwhite Chiropractic and you, set a plan to raise them.
Why? A vitamin B12 deficiency 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. 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 Satterwhite Chiropractic to lead you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency uncovered.
