Vitamin B1 (Benfotiamine): Benfotiamine is a fat-soluble
version of Vitamin B1 that is more bio-available. Your body uses
Benfotiamine to synthesize acetylcholine, that permits
nerve impulses to travel swiftly from one nerve to the other.
Benfotiamine also has a role in maintaining the structure of nerve
cell membranes. One study that assessed Vitamin B1 to regenerate
nerves concluded: “…that oral administration of benfotiamine is best
suited for therapeutically purposes owing to its excellent
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): helps generate glutathione, a
superior antioxidant. Most of the studies done on riboflavin and
neuropathy involved birds; either pigeons or chickens fed a
riboflavin deficient diet. The researchers reported
fragmentation of the myelin sheath in the peripheral nerves of
all the birds that lacked riboflavin.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin, nicotinic acid): helps stabilize blood
sugar levels, aids in weight loss, improves circulation and assists
in the functioning of the nervous system. Niacin is critical in
helping your blood vessels to open (dilate) thereby increasing
healing blood flow, reducing blood pressure and halting blood
clots. Dr. Lark Lands, in her book “Positively Well: Living With
HIV as a Chronic, Manageable Survival Disease”, found niacin helpful
in rebuilding the myelin sheath of HIV sufferers afflicted with
peripheral neuropathy. A study on a derivative of niacin
concluded that this substance is “…an attractive non-toxic therapy
for the treatment of diabetic peripheral neuropathy.”
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid): The life Extension Foundation
reported that a study conducted on peripheral neuropathy patients
treated with alpha lipoic acid (ALA) showed further improvement
when vitamin B5 was added than when given ALA alone.
Vitamin B12 (Methlycobalamin): Methyl B12 is perhaps the
most effective of the B-complex vitamins in the treatment of
peripheral neuropathy. Methyl B12 therapy eases “PAIN”, “tingling”,
“burning”, and loss of sensation from diabetic nerve damage. One
study found that Methyl B12 enhanced nerve regeneration by
increasing nerve fiber density.
Caffeine: Caffeine acts a
neurotransmitter accelerator in the synaptic junctions between your
nerve cells. By itself, caffeine can cause
jitteriness, but in the presence of all the B vitamins, it elevates
nerve conduction velocity to help you focus, without any
jitteriness. Most people who cannot tolerate unopposed caffeine
find that the ReStore product causes no irritability or nervousness
or increased heart rate.
Folate (Folic Acid): Folic acid helps to maintain the
integrity of your nerve cells. One Japanese study found that
foliate-deficient men exhibited demyelination (degradation) of the
protective myelin sheath. The symptoms improved with
supplementation. It partners with B12 to form Methyl B12.
Vitamin C is essential in the maintenance in collagen which is
necessary for skin health. Since the small sensory nerve fibers are
in the skin this is helpful to sufferers of peripheral neuropathy.
Choline is converted into a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine,
which helps muscles to contract, activates pain responses, and plays
a role in brain functions of memory and thinking.
Alpha Lipoic acid (ALA) is an
antioxidant that has been approved in Germany to treat diabetic
peripheral neuropathy for decades. Data indicates “…possible
long-term improvement in motor and sensory nerve conduction in the
LOWER LIMBS (LEGS)!” ALA is commonly called the universal
ALA also helps
stabilizes blood glucose levels, improve blood flow to nerves and
reduces free radical stress.
treatment with ALA actually induces “sprouting”, which fosters the
growth of new nerve fibers to actually regenerate nerves. The
subjects in one clinical trial reported to have an 82% reduction in
“pain” in just three weeks. ALA also acts to help support nerve
conduction speed thus allowing your nerves to communicate in a
normal fashion. In the presence of marauding free radicals, blood
glucose cross-links with your protective myelin sheath forming
stiff, inflexible sugar-damaged proteins known as: Advanced
Glycosylation End-products (AGE’s). AGE’s hastens aging and
provokes protein disruption in your kidneys, eyes, NERVES and blood
vessels. ALA boosts healing blood flow to the myelin sheath to
enhance nerve conduction! A human clinical trial also found that
ALA protected the tiny capillaries that nourish the nerves in your
legs, hands, eyes and brain.
All of the
ingredients in ReStore are carefully combined after considering many
other natural nutrients. Each ingredient protects or repairs the
myelin sheath (a protective coating that surrounds neurons),
contributes to nerve conduction, regenerates nerve cells, reduces
free radical destruction of the nerves or of the capillaries that
feed the nerves, and replenishes valuable minerals. In addition,
each nutrient works together to promote healing.
