Are you getting enough Vitamin B? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. There are eight different types of B vitamins that work together to help aid in different bodily functions. For now, let’s focus on B-6. Vitamin B-6 is responsible for brain development, immune function, breaking down fats and carbohydrates, and amino acid metabolism. When levels are low, people are at risk anemia, tongue swelling, confusion, depression, and weakened immune system. You can naturally boost B-6 levels by consuming potatoes, salmon, tuna, organ meats, poultry, and chickpeas. People with digestive diseases, kidney problems, or alcohol dependence are at a higher risk of developing a deficiency. Talk to your doctor if you think you may be suffering from a B-6 deficiency. This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.
