Colorado Springs 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 sometimes were derided as to their importance. Vitamins are really needed dietary components for healthy life. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR, a full host of Colorado Springs chiropractic care options are available to determine the source of your current concern and help resolve it.

Vitamins are important for health as it is now recognized that a deficiency 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. 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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 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, too. (2) Your Colorado Springs chiropractor understands diabetes well.

Vitamins promote cancer prevention, particularly in the initial stages of the cancer development. Folate (B9), vitamins B2, B6, and B12 are rather 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) 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 to ward off serious illnesses. (4)

Vitamin B12 itself is also really important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a necessary micronutrient as humans cannot produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Colorado Springs who are over 65 years of age must be aware of B12 deficiency; 15% of us are lacking! If we have low levels of B12, neurological disorders and blood disorders may arise. 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. 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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR encourages our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR and you, make a plan to improve them.

Why? A low level of 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. The good news is that the researchers who found these issues were able to help the patients with vitamin B12 supplementation. (6) Trust The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR to guide you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency uncovered.
