Reduces Glucose Related Nerve Damage
Understanding Neurological Health - Natural Neurological Health Supplements, Herbs & Nutrients
The brain, spinal cord and neurons make up the nervous system. The nervous system is the communication highway in the body. Every single process that occurs is communicated by the brain to the tissues by neurons. Neurons use chemical messengers, known as neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin, epinephrine, GABA) to communicate these messages. Age, genetics, injury, chronic disease and pollutants create inflammation and toxins which damage neurons and over time, this leads to serious diseases. Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease are examples of neurological disorders. More commonly, neuron damage disrupts normal body functions and can lead to paralysis, weak muscles, loss of sensation, decline in cognitive function and pain. Lifestyle modifications such as quitting smoking and avoiding activities which can cause injury can reduce the risk of developing certain neurological disorders. Certain nutrients and antioxidants have also been shown to reduce oxidative damage which destroys neurons.
