How is Metanx® Believed to Work?
Patients with diabetes have a disruption in the metabolic processes which results in progressive neuropathy.
Metanx® provides the nutritional requirements needed by diabetes patients to restore the metabolic processes associated with diabetic neuropathy to support peripheral nerve and blood vessel health.
In doing so, your body produces a natural vasodilator called nitric oxide. As a result, blood flow increases in the vessels that carry important nutrients and oxygen to the nerves.6 Nutritional management with Metanx® also works to assist in nerve functions including production of the myelin sheath, a fatty substance that protects the nerve fibers.
