Vitamin B supports 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 necessary dietary components for healthy life. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Montreal chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Montreal chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic, a full host of Montreal chiropractic care options are available to determine the source of your current concern and help resolve it.
Health is often reliant upon proper vitamin levels as it’s 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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 influence the vitamin B12 level, also. (2) Your Montreal chiropractor understands diabetes well.
Vitamins play a preventive role of cancer, particularly in the initial stages of the cancer development. Folate (B9), vitamins B2, B6, and B12 are quite important. Specifically, a folate (B9) deficiency messes with dendritic cell function which impacts 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 excited about the potential vitamins like B offer to ward off serious illnesses. (4)
Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a vital micronutrient as humans cannot produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Montreal 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. 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic encourages our Montreal chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic and you, set 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. 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.
