Largo Chiropractic Discussion of Vitamin B for Brain

Vitamin B promotes healthy blood, brain and body, the big 3 B’s for all of us [[targeltocation]] humans!

Not so long ago, vitamins sometimes were derided as to their importance. Vitamins are really needed dietary components for healthy life. (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Largo chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Largo chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers many Largo chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health issues you bring to your Largo chiropractic appointment.

Vitamins are important for health 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 impact memory, dementia and cognitive function. Shortages 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) Hollstrom & Associates Inc carefully listens to our patients for any sign of depression.

Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Largo 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 influence the vitamin B12 level, as well. (2) Your Largo 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) 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 an essential micronutrient as we can’t produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Largo 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 have a higher risk of 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 undergoes an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) Hollstrom & Associates Inc encourages our Largo chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, Hollstrom & Associates Inc and you, make a plan to raise them.

Why? A vitamin B12 deficiency brings on a range 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 aided all these patients. (6) Trust Hollstrom & Associates Inc to guide you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency uncovered.
