Neuropathy Medications vs Natural Options
What does neuropathy (nerve damage) feel like?
- Pins and needles
- Uncomfortable tingling and burning
- Oversensitivity (such as pain from feet touching a blanket)
- Reduced feeling (numbness)
What causes neuropathy?
High blood sugars from diabetes over time can damage nerves and interfere with their ability to send signals because of loss of myelin (the insulation protecting our nerves) leading to numbness and tingling. High blood sugars can also directly cause inflammation and weaken the walls of the small blood vessels that feed nerves with oxygen and nutrients.
Other causes of nerve damage are narrowing of the arteries from smoking, narrowing, and high blood pressure.
What prescription medications treat neuropathy?
The most prescribed medications are:
- Amitriptyline and nortriptyline (antidepressants)
- Lyrica (pregabalin)
- Neurontin (gabapentin)
- Cymbalta (duloxetine)
- Pain relievers like tramadol and oxycodone
While they certainly may provide temporary relief of pain, they are notorious for causing drowsiness, dizziness, fatigue, and constipation. Lyrica, in particular, can also cause leg swelling and edema.
Unfortunately, none of these prescriptions actually treat the cause of neuropathy! This is why it’s so important to try to control the variables you can- including maintaining blood sugars in a healthy range.
What natural options can help?
A handful of specific herbs and vitamins have extensive medical research recommending their use for nerve health.
The Alpha-Lipoic Acid in Nerve Miracle has been shown to reduce symptoms by 51%. This powerful antioxidant can help fight inflammation that damages nerve endings to support a healing environment for nerves.*
Vitamins B12 and D3 in Nerve Miracle are essential nutrients for nerve function and maintain healthy insulation around the nerves, to enrich the body’s natural signals for pain relief.*
What are other nerve health supplements missing?
The doses are too low!
Research studies validate that a minimum of 600 mg of Alpha-Lipoic Acid (nothing less) is needed for benefits on nerve health. Every serving of Nerve Miracle contains the full recommended amount of 600 mg per day.
They don’t use Horse Chestnut Seed!
One of the key ingredients in Nerve Miracle, Horse Chestnut Seed, targets the source of nerve damage. It works by sealing injured capillaries, supporting strength of veins, and preventing the release of certain enzymes that damage blood vessels.
Observational studies of more than 800 general practitioners treating over 5,000 patients using horse chestnut extract showed symptoms of pain, tiredness/heaviness, swelling in the leg, as well as itching improved markedly or disappeared completely.
They aren’t verified to be safe!
Did you know that dietary supplements are NOT regulated by the FDA? Nerve Miracle, in partnership with CVS Pharmacy, has been third party tested to verify that all the ingredients and doses listed on the label are accurate and that no harmful contaminants are found.
They don’t use activated forms of vitamins!
Nerve Miracle uses methylcobalamin, instead of cyanocobalamin, as a Vitamin B12 source. This is the more active form and is easier for the body to absorb and use – to optimize benefits on nerve health.

How should I use Nerve Miracle for best results?
Take 2 capsules/day! They can be taken together at the same time (most people take them together in the evening when their symptoms are at their worst) or split into 1 capsule twice daily.
Results can start in as little as 2 weeks and most people will notice benefits after 5 weeks (within the money-back guarantee window).
