Vitamin B promotes healthy 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 needed dietary components for healthy life. (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Eugene chiropractic patients and their influence on our Eugene chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic, a full host of Eugene chiropractic care options exist to determine the source of your current concern and return to you to your desired quality of life.
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 influence memory, dementia and cognitive function. Shortages 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) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic carefully listens to our patients for any sign of depression.
Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Eugene 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, also. (2) Your Eugene 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 quite important. Specifically, a low level of folate (B9) affects 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, providing compounds for DNA synthesis and repair processes. Researchers are enthusiastic about the potential vitamins like B offer to hinder the onset 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. Statistics say that those of us in Eugene 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 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. When vitamin B12 is eaten, it goes through a complicated absorption and assimilation process. (5) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic encourages our Eugene chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they are low, let’s together, Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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. The good news is that the researchers who found these issues were able to help the patients with vitamin B12 supplementation. (6) Trust Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic to direct you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency found.
