Tarrytown Chiropractic Discussion of Vitamin B for Brain

Vitamin B supports 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 necessary dietary components for healthy life. (1) Tarrytown Chiropractic understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Tarrytown chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Tarrytown chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Tarrytown Chiropractic offers many Tarrytown chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health issues you bring to your Tarrytown chiropractic appointment.

Health is often reliant upon proper vitamin levels as it is now recognized that a lack 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 associated with depression. The multifaceted nature of depression is interconnected with vitamin B. (1) Tarrytown Chiropractic pays attention to our patients carefully for any depression symptoms.

Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Tarrytown diabetic patients. Patients with diabetes are often prescribed metformin. This drug may lower 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, also. (2) Your Tarrytown 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 influences T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells trigger 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 offer for the prevention of serious illnesses. (4)

Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a vital micronutrient as we do not produce it. 15% of us Tarrytown 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. Vitamin B12 has to be obtained by eating animal proteins. Eaten vitamin B12 experiences an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) Tarrytown Chiropractic encourages our Tarrytown chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they are low, let us together, Tarrytown Chiropractic and you, make 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. Fortunately, B12 supplementation helped all these patients. (6) Trust Tarrytown Chiropractic to lead you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency discovered.
