Nerve Health & Comfort Support Information & Research

How does the nervous system work?

Our bodies are made up of a complex network of nerve cells that broadcast information to and from our brains. Whether it’s the touch of a feather or the scorch of a flame, the nerve cells send messengers called neurotransmitters that allow the brain to translate the message into a reaction, such as removing your hand from a hot surface.

What can support your nerve health?

In general, you should eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Supplementation with lipoic acid, B vitamins, carnitine and acetyl-L-carnitine, and palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) may support nerve health as well.

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.
