Benefits of High Dose Vitamin B in Nerve Care
Neurotropic B vitamins contribute to nerve care via different biochemical mechanisms. They nourish and help regenerate nerves; these vitamins are thiamine (B1), pyridoxine (B6), and cobalamin (B12). Each of these B vitamins has been found to have unique essential roles, which contributes to nerve function.
Vitamin B1 is involved in energy metabolism, helps in maintaining the myelin sheath which covers the axon of nerves, and in the synthesis of key signalling molecules in the nervous system known as neurotransmitters. Vitamin B6 is involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters (key signaling molecules in the nervous system). Vitamin B12 is involved in nerve cell maturation and regeneration, nerve cell metabolism and formation of nerve myelin sheaths.
In populations at risk of neuropathy, such as people with diabetes and those with elevated risk of B vitamin deficiency, early detection and treatment of neuropathy is crucial to avoid irreversible damage to nerves.
As part as our continuous initiatives to raise awareness on the importance of healthy nerves, Merck is providing nerve test using biothesiometer at selected pharmacies nationwide. We hope to encourage consumers to take the first step in identifying possible nerve damage and seek further medical consultation or treatment if needed.
