Baton Rouge Chiropractic Discussion of Vitamin B for Brain

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 needed dietary components for healthy life. (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients and their influence on our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Spine & Sports Rehab Center offers many Baton Rouge chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health concerns you bring to your Baton Rouge chiropractic appointment.

Vitamins are important for health as it’s now recognized that a deficiency of them may be linked to 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) Spine & Sports Rehab Center 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, too. (2) Your Baton Rouge chiropractor understands diabetes well.

Vitamins promote cancer prevention, particularly in the early stages of the cancer development. Folate (B9), vitamins B2, B6, and B12 are rather important. Specifically, a folate (B9) deficiency messes with 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, delivering compounds for DNA synthesis and repair processes. Researchers are excited about the potential vitamins like B present to hinder the onset of serious illnesses. (4)

Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. Vitamin B12 is crucial to cell function. It’s a vital micronutrient as we can’t produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Baton Rouge 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 put us at risk for coronary artery disease. We can only get vitamin B12 by eating proteins from animals. Eaten vitamin B12 undergoes an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) Spine & Sports Rehab Center encourages our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, Spine & Sports Rehab Center and you, make a plan to improve them.

Why? Lack of vitamin B12 brings on a range 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 aided all these patients. (6) Trust Spine & Sports Rehab Center to lead you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency discovered.
