Neuropathy can be both painful and a dangerous condition. The danger comes from the inability to feel sores on the feet or other places that can result in serious infections. The condition is often caused by poor capillary circulation. Stem cells that repair the skin and nerves are also affected as they reside in the capillary beds. The primary nutrient that has been shown to be helpful in multiple studies is lipoic acid. Lipoic acid is found in many supplements but not in sufficient levels to have a significant impact on neuropathy. Our two main recommendations are to increase the number of circulating stem cells and to use a supplement containing adequate levels of lipoic acid. A strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory are also key. An absorbable form of Tumeric is the best choice.
Stem cell deficiency is one of the key components of neuropathy. We have several excellent supplements that improve the number of circulating stem cells. The key ingredient in these supplements is astragalus. Stem-Kine has the most documented evidence of efficacy and is used by some of the world's most prestigious stem cell clinics.
Several studies have shown the effectiveness of lipoic acid in improving the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. The dose used in these studies was 600 mg per day. Many of our supplements contain some lipoic acid, but for neuropathy, we only recommend using products with adequate levels.
