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 were not always considered that important. Vitamins are really essential dietary components for healthy life. (1) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Groton chiropractic patients and their influence on our Groton chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office, a full host of Groton chiropractic care options exist 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 lack of them may be linked to 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) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office carefully listens to our patients for any sign of depression.
Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Groton diabetic patients. 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, as well. (2) Your Groton 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 low level of folate (B9) messes with dendritic cell function which influences 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 enthusiastic 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 an essential micronutrient as we can’t produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Groton 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 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) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office encourages our Groton chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office to guide you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency uncovered.
