High blood sugar levels can lead to nerve damage by reducing blood flow to the peripheral nerves, starving them of the oxygen and nutrients they need to survive and decreasing their ability to send out signals.
Metanx® provides the distinct nutritional requirements to manage the condition that causes damaged blood vessels associated with diabetic neuropathy.
Metanx® works in a natural process to maintain blood flow in the vessels by increasing the production of a natural potent vasodilator called Nitric Oxide. When Nitric Oxide enters the blood vessel, it relaxes the smooth muscle cells. In doing so, the blood vessels expand and there is an improvement in blood flow.
This improved blood flow carries the essential nutrients and oxygen to the peripheral nerves allowing them to perform normal functions such as nerve repair including production of the myelin sheath, a substance that insulates and protects the nerve fibers.
