San Jose Chiropractic Discussion of Vitamin B for Brain

Vitamin B promotes healthy 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 necessary dietary components for healthy life. (1) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our San Jose chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our San Jose chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions offers many San Jose chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health concerns you bring to your San Jose chiropractic appointment.

Vitamins are important for health as it is 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. Depression is complex, and vitamin B contributes to its complexity. (1) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions 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 play a role in the vitamin B12 level, also. (2) Your San Jose chiropractor understands diabetes well.

Vitamins play a preventive role of cancer, particularly in the early 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 influences 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 present to ward off serious illnesses. (4)

Vitamin B12 itself is also really important. Vitamin B12 is crucial to cell function. It’s a necessary micronutrient as humans don’t make it. Statistics say that those of us in San Jose 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. We can only get vitamin B12 by eating proteins from animals. Eaten vitamin B12 experiences an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions encourages our San Jose chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let us together, McMurray Chiropractic Solutions and you, make a plan to improve 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. Fortunately, B12 supplementation helped all these patients. (6) Trust McMurray Chiropractic Solutions to guide you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency uncovered.
