Watertown 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 weren’t always accepted as mainstream. Vitamins are really needed dietary components for healthy life. (1) Watertown Wellness Center understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Watertown chiropractic patients and their influence on our Watertown chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. Watertown Wellness Center offers many Watertown chiropractic care choices to diagnose as well as resolve health concerns you bring to your Watertown chiropractic appointment.

Health is often reliant upon proper vitamin levels as it is now known that a lack of them may be linked to 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 related to depression. Depression is complex, and vitamin B contributes to its complexity. (1) Watertown Wellness Center carefully listens to our patients for any sign of depression.

Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Watertown 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 play a role in the vitamin B12 level, as well. (2) Your Watertown 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 very important. Specifically, a folate (B9) deficiency 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, providing compounds for DNA synthesis and repair processes. Researchers are excited about the potential vitamins like B present for the prevention of serious illnesses. (4)

Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. Vitamin B12 is crucial to cell function. It’s a vital micronutrient as humans don’t make it. Statistics say that those of us in Watertown who are over 65 years of age must be aware of B12 deficiency; 15% of us are lacking! 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. Vitamin B12 has to be obtained by eating animal proteins. Eaten vitamin B12 undergoes an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) Watertown Wellness Center encourages our Watertown chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, Watertown Wellness Center and you, set a plan to improve them.

Why? Lack of vitamin B12 causes a variety of neurological issues. These issues may be 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 Watertown Wellness Center to lead you to the required care for any B12 deficiency revealed.
