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) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our La Grande chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our La Grande chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC, a full host of La Grande 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 deficiency 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. Depression is complex, and vitamin B contributes to its complexity. (1) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC pays attention to our patients carefully for any depression symptoms.
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, too. (2) Your La Grande 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 very important. Specifically, a folate (B9) deficiency 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 enthusiastic about the potential vitamins like B offer 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 do not produce it. 15% of us La Grande folks who are older than 65 don’t have enough vitamin B12. If we have low levels of B12, neurological disorders and blood disorders may arise. We may be at risk for 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. Eaten vitamin B12 undergoes an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC encourages our La Grande chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC and you, make a plan to raise them.
Why? A low level of B12 brings on a range of neurological issues. Some are 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.
