Manchester Chiropractic Discussion of Vitamin B for Brain

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 needed dietary components for healthy life. (1) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Manchester chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Manchester chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries offers many Manchester chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health issues you bring to your Manchester chiropractic appointment.

Vitamins are important for health as it is now recognized that a lack 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 associated with depression. Depression is complex, and vitamin B contributes to its complexity. (1) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries 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, as well. (2) Your Manchester 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 quite important. Specifically, a low level of folate (B9) messes with dendritic cell function which impacts T helper cell differentiation. (T helper cells trigger the immune responses in the body.) (3) Metabolism of the B vitamins is important, delivering compounds for DNA synthesis and repair processes. Researchers are enthusiastic about the potential vitamins like B present 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 can’t produce it. 15% of us Manchester 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 mean we have a higher risk of coronary artery disease. We can only get vitamin B12 by eating proteins from animals. When vitamin B12 is eaten, it goes through a complicated absorption and assimilation process. (5) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries encourages our Manchester chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they are low, let us together, Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries and you, set a plan to improve them.

Why? A low level of B12 causes a variety 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. 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 Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries to guide you to the required care for any B12 deficiency found.
