➡️ What is Neuropathy?
Also known as Peripheral Neuropathy, it’s a disorder that occurs when your nerves are not functioning properly. It results in weakness, numbness, and/or pain, typically, in the hands and feet, but can occur in other parts of the body as well. Peripheral neuropathy is often caused by diabetes, but it can also result from injuries, infections, and exposure to toxins.
Omega-3 is a fatty acid that is found naturally in certain foods. Unfortunately, our bodies don’t produce omega-3s on their own, which means that we need to get it from the foods that we eat. Omega-3s are known to reduce the risk of heart disease and other conditions, but many don’t realize that they can benefit the nervous system as well.
➡️ Vitamin B12
It’s a vitamin that is typically known as an energy booster but it also offers benefits for your nerves as well. It helps the body to create DNA which keeps the nerve cells healthy. If your body is deficient in vitamin B12, nerve problems, such as numbness and tingling in the hands and feet, can occur.
➡️ Vitamin B6
Vitamin B6 is another essential vitamin that must be obtained from an outside source. When it comes to the nervous system, this vitamin helps to form neurotransmitters which are substances that come from nerve cells and send important messages throughout the body. Vitamin B6 also helps to form the substance that creates a protective covering over nerve cells called myelin. This means that getting adequate amounts of this vitamin in your diet is necessary for healthy nerve function.
It’s a substance that helps our body produce energy. But many don’t realize that it also has been shown to help people with neuropathy as well. One study found that acetyl-L-carnitine helped reduce pain in people with diabetic neuropathy and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Curcumin is the main active substance found in turmeric. Turmeric is a spice from the ginger family that is best known for its anti-inflammatory benefits. Curcumin also seems to offer major benefits for the nervous system as well.
➡️ Alpha-lipoic acid
It’s a substance with antioxidant properties and has been shown to help with the glucose levels of people with metabolic syndrome. But, when it comes to the nervous system, alpha-lipoic acid has been shown to offer benefits to those with multiple sclerosis which is a chronic disease that causes the protective covering of the nerves to be damaged.
➡️ Vitamin D
This essential vitamin has many different roles in the body but it’s most known to promote calcium absorption and mineralization so that your bones can grow strong and healthy. People don’t realize that Vitamin D also affects the nervous system as well.
