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 essential dietary components for healthy life. (1) Dr. Gary Stefanick understands vitamins’ importance to the health of our New York chiropractic patients and their influence on our New York chiropractic patients’ back pain and neck pain conditions. At Dr. Gary Stefanick, a full host of New York chiropractic care options exist 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 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. Depression is complex, and vitamin B contributes to its complexity. (1) Dr. Gary Stefanick carefully listens to our patients for any sign of depression.
Another subset of patient to check B levels in are New York diabetic patients. 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 influence the vitamin B12 level, as well. (2) Your New York 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 very 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, 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 quite important. Vitamin B12 is crucial to cell function. It’s an essential micronutrient as we do not produce it. Statistics say that those of us in New York 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. When vitamin B12 is eaten, it goes through a complicated absorption and assimilation process. (5) Dr. Gary Stefanick encourages our New York chiropractic patients to check their B12 levels. If they are low, let us together, Dr. Gary Stefanick and you, set a plan to improve 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. The good news is that the researchers who found these issues were able to help the patients with vitamin B12 supplementation. (6) Trust Dr. Gary Stefanick to lead you to the necessary care for any B12 deficiency discovered.
