Ottawa Chiropractic Discussion of Vitamin B for Brain

Vitamin B is good for 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 practice of Dr. Tim Schneider gets the importance of vitamins to the health of our Ottawa chiropractic patients and their deficiency’s contribution to our Ottawa chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider, a full host of Ottawa chiropractic care options are available to determine the source of your current concern and help resolve it.

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 influence memory, dementia and cognitive function. Deficiencies of B1, B3, B6, B9 and B12 – all vital for neuronal function – are associated with depression. The multifaceted nature of depression is interconnected with vitamin B. (1) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider carefully listens to our patients for any sign of depression.

Another subset of patient to check B levels in are Ottawa diabetic patients. Patients with diabetes many times take metformin. This drug may lower 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 Ottawa 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 rather important. Specifically, a folate (B9) deficiency affects dendritic cell function which influences 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 offer for the prevention of serious illnesses. (4)

Vitamin B12 itself is also quite important. It’s essential for cellular function. It’s an essential micronutrient as we can’t produce it. Statistics say that those of us in Ottawa 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 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) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider encourages our Ottawa chiropractic patients to test their B12 levels. If they are low, let’s together, The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider and you, set a plan to raise them.

Why? Lack of vitamin B12 brings on a range 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. Fortunately, B12 supplementation aided all these patients. (6) Trust The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider to lead you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency found.
