Nerve Health & Comfort Support Information & Research

1.
Which supplements help nerve health?

Nerves are present throughout the body and maintaining optimal nerve health is essential for supporting whole-body health. B vitamins are essential for maintaining nerve function. Their presence in the standard Western diet is often insufficient, making supplementation helpful. The omega-3 fatty acid DHA, vitamin C and zinc support the formation of the myelin sheath which insulates the nerves.

2.
How can palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) help support nervous system health?

Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is a compound produced by our bodies that helps inhibit occasional minor pain. In published studies, researchers demonstrated that PEA helped support a healthy inflammatory and oxidative response. PEA can also help support nerve tissue health and may help maintain central nervous system health.

3.
What are ways to promote nerve comfort?

Some studies suggest that supplemental lipoic acid or palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) may support nerve comfort. If you experience nerve discomfort, you should consult with your doctor.
