B Vitamin Complex.
B vitamins are essential for a fully functioning metabolism. Their primary function is to help your body metabolize carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, and to use the stored energy in food.
When we do not get enough B vitamins, we feel sluggish, tired, and even anemic.
The B vitamins include thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, biotin, folate, and vitamin B12.
When it comes to neuropathy, you should prioritize thiamin, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12.
Thiamin inhibits inflammation pathways, which lowers pain.
Vitamin B6 helps preserve nerve endings, reducing the extensive damage that neuropathy can cause.
Foods that are rich in B vitamins include animal-based foods such as red meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, eggs and dairy and plant-based foods like dark leafy greens, legumes, nuts and seeds.
👉 You can also get a B vitamin complex supplement, but do choose one that is made from natural, whole foods.
Watch our previous video on warning signs of Vitamin B12 deficiency for more information.
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that can help stop damage to your body, which helps prevent disease, aging faster and chronic inflammation.
It is composed of three amino acids: glutamine, glycine, and cysteine.
Yes, you can obtain glutathione from spinach, avocados, asparagus and okra, and other greens like broccoli, brussel sprouts and cabbage – but do know it’s poorly absorbed by the body.
Studies have also found that glutathione may be an effective supplement in treating neuropathy caused by cancer drugs.
Aside from neuropathy, taking glutathione can reduce the risk for other diseases, like Parkinson’s, diabetes, and heart disease.
