Nervala

Nervala®

Nervala® 30 Capsules used for:

Neuropathic pain caused by compression, clamping, vitamin deficiencies, postoperative, metabolic processes.

Nervala® 30 Capsules:

Neuropathic pain is caused by an injury or disease that affects the peripheral nervous system. It is usually associated with degenerative processes of nerve fibers, demyelination and chronic inflammation, exacerbated increase in cellular oxidative stress, and decreased nerve neurovascularization, which is why the injury repair mechanisms are affected, becoming a vicious circle and with tendency to chronification.

In these types of situations in which there is an excess of oxidative stress or when the endogenous defense system is not enough to eliminate and neutralize these free radicals, exogenous supplementation through antioxidants is necessary, in order to help eliminate excess free radicals and reduce cellular, tissue and systemic damage.

Nervala® 30 capsules is a nutraceutical product made with alpha lipoic acid, hydroxytyrosol, L-carnosine, zinc and is complemented with a vitamin B complex. The Vitamin B3, B6, B1, B2 and B12 complex contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system and, in association with Vitamin B5, to the energy metabolism. Vitamin B2, in particular, favors the normal functioning of nerves and, together with Zinc, assists in the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

INFORMATION

Uses:

Nervala® by Laboratorios Farmolab is a food supplement that can provide a neuroprotective effect.

Some very common pathologies associated with neuropathic pain due to metabolic processes, vitamin deficiencies, nerve compression, clamping, postoperative processes, etc., are associated with nerve damage often causing a decrease in the neurovascular blood supply and an increase of oxidative stress, altering their function and causing pain, paraesthesia or worsening symptoms.

In case of such pathologies, offering neuroprotection in order to minimise the damage caused by the affected nerve can be of great help.

Composition

Alpha Lipoic Acid

A disulphide compound as well as cofactor of important vital reactions in the energy production in the human body.

Hydroxytyrosol

A phenolic compound obtained from Olea Europea extract. Hydroxytyrosol is considered to be one of the most powerful antioxidants that exist, it is one of the few antioxidants to act against most free radicals present in our body and it is also able to reach tissues other antioxidants can’t reach, to such extent that it is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, besides having a powerful antioxidant effect it also has effects on the reduction of pro-inflammatory and neurovascular mediators as well as on neurotrophic factors such as BDNF and NGF.

L-Carnosine

L-Carnosine is a dipeptide composed of beta-alanine and L-histidine and is present in fairly high concentrations in excitable tissues, including nervous tissue and muscle-bone tissue.

Zinc

An essential trace element with a wide variety of functions in the body. Contributes to the protection of cells against oxidative stress.

Vitamin B complex.

One of the compounds Nervala® 30 Capsules includes is a complex of group B vitamins. Vitamin B2 and vitamin B12 contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system. Vitamins B2, B3, B5 and B12 support the normal energy metabolism. Vitamin B6 supports the metabolism of homocysteine and vitamin B9 contributes to the normal synthesis of amino acids. Moreover, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) supports the synthesis and the normal metabolism of steroid hormones, vitamin D and some neurotransmitters, and vitamin B12 contributes to the cell division process, whereas riboflavin (vitamin B2) supports the protection of cells against oxidative stress.
