Buffalo, NY 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) The Novelli Wellness Center understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients and their influence on our Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At The Novelli Wellness Center, a full host of Buffalo, NY chiropractic care options are available 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 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 associated with depression. Depression is complex, and vitamin B contributes to its complexity. (1) The Novelli Wellness Center 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 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 Buffalo, NY 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 quite important. Specifically, a low level of folate (B9) messes with dendritic cell function which influences 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 quite important. Vitamin B12 is crucial to cell function. It’s a necessary micronutrient as we do not produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Buffalo, NY 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 undergoes an intricate process of absorption and assimilation. (5) The Novelli Wellness Center encourages our Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they’re low, let’s together, The Novelli Wellness Center 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 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 The Novelli Wellness Center to direct you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency found.

The Novelli Wellness Center is prepared to search for any nutritional deficiency that may be contributing to your current condition as nutrition is a part of chiropractic.
