New York City 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 were not always considered that important. Vitamins are really needed dietary components for healthy life. (1) Innate Wisdom gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our New York City chiropractic patients and their influence on our New York City chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Innate Wisdom offers many New York City chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health concerns you bring to your New York City chiropractic appointment.

Vitamins are important for health as it’s now known 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. Deficiencies 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) Innate Wisdom 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 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 play a role in the vitamin B12 level, too. (2) Your New York City 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 rather 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) Metabolism of the B vitamins is important, delivering 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 really important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s a vital micronutrient as humans don’t make it. Statistics say that those of us in New York City 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 put us at risk for coronary artery disease. We can only get vitamin B12 by eating proteins from animals. Eaten vitamin B12 experiences an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) Innate Wisdom encourages our New York City chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, Innate Wisdom 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 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. Fortunately, B12 supplementation aided all these patients. (6) Trust Innate Wisdom to lead you to the required care for any B12 deficiency uncovered.
