Well, we know we can rule out the use of herbs. Herbs are medications. They force the body to do something it normally wouldn’t do, just like drugs. However, they are superior to drugs as they are natural not made in a laboratory.

When using herbs you do need to know who is creating the herbal remedies as quality of the herb and manufacture of the herbal remedy can vary. But simply put, the body doesn’t use herbs to repair itself.

A lot of articles written by medical doctors and medical professionals will only talk about using vitamins when the cause of the neuropathy was a deficiency of B12.

So what vitamins are actually needed for to build healthy nerves?

B1 – Vitamin B1 functions along with other B vitamins to turn nutrients into energy, normal heart functions, formation of blood, HCL in the stomach for digestion, and proper functioning of muscles, Vitamin B1 supports the normal function of the nervous system. It is required for nerves to function correctly, and helps in the maintenance of healthy nerves. It is required for regulating the transmission of particular types of nerve signals along the brain and the spinal cord.

B12 –Vitamin B-12 is necessary in human health for the formation of proteins and red blood cells, and for the functioning of the nervous system. It is vitally important in maintaining the health of the outer sheathing (protective covering, also called the myelin sheath) that surrounds nerve cells.

B2 – Vitamin B2 riboflavin helps produce red blood cells and protects the nervous system.

B6 – Vitamin B6 helps in the production of neurotransmitters, the chemicals that allow brain and nerve cells to communicate with one another, ensuring that metabolic processes such as fat and protein metabolism run smoothly, Vitamin B6 helps the body make several neurotransmitters, chemicals that carry signals from one nerve cell to another.

Folic Acid – Vitamin-B12 and folic-acid work together. Folic acid is needed to activate B12. Both vitamins together help nerves to function properly.

D3 induces nerve growth factor production in the human body.

Together these vitamins give the body what it needs to get relief for neuropathy.
