Antioxidants Reverse the Effects of Diabetic Neuropathy

Several studies have shown neuropathy symptoms such as pain, numbness, burning and prickling sensations significantly improved after subjects suffering from diabetes were given antioxidants.

Dr. Feldman, Professor of Neurology at the University of Michigan, noted that excessive sugar in the blood plasma creates free radicals which damage the DNA in nervous system cells.  Oxygen transport in the DNA is halted by the build up of free radicals.  This resulting DNA damage is a major contributing factor in diabetic neuropathy.

The key to counteracting free radicals is introducing antioxidants.

Remember, free radicals are charged molecules that attack neighboring molecules in order to steal their electrons.  Free radicals punch through cell membranes and tear apart DNA structures in these neighboring cells.  This, in turn, creates more damaged cells which generate more free radicals and the wave of cellular destruction continues.  This process is a form of oxidation or oxidative stress.

Antioxidants prevent and inhibit oxidation.

Protecting sensitive nerve cells from free radical damage is a safe, natural, and effective means of coping with neuropathy while repairing existing oxidative stress.

    Oxidation in our bodies is seen as rust and erodes our bodies from the inside out. Our bodies are building oxidation daily through our regular every day lives. Think of an aging banana that is ripe and yellow that as time goes on begins to discolor and turn brown, and that is what happens with oxidation within our bodies. Inside our bodies we have an alarm system that is called inflammation, and as free radical stress causes oxidation, the oxidation then causes inflammation. In our bodies it works like a vicious cycle because the inflammation causes more free radical stress, which then causes additional oxidation, which then causes further inflammation.

    Hello Gerard,

    Congratulations on largely reducing your neuropathy discomfort. In short, I think that using the Isotonix brand of antioxidants and vitamins would help anyone who is looking to improve their health and diminish undesirable aspects pertaining to cellular oxidation or inflammation. Several studies have observed marked reduction in oxidative stress, increased circulation, and improved vascular performance with antioxidant supplementation. There are hundreds of antioxidant formulas on the market, but I recommend the Isotonix brand because it has superior bioavailability, absorption, drinkability, unsurpassed quality and excellent value. Short of using antioxidants via an IV, you just can’t beat these products in delivering nutrients into the bloodstream.

    Newly released findings from a study on the specific benefits of Pycnogenol for diabetic symptoms was just released this year. Here is a quote from a summary of that study:

    “Pycnogenol is one of the “miracle nutrients” we’ve been blessed with on this planet. Time and time again, it has been proven to offer truly remarkable health benefits to those people who taken the supplement. Now, this research shows how beneficial Pycnogenol can be for diabetics. It’s an important piece of research showing how this tree-derived nutrient helps increase circulation that can ultimately help save lives. It’s not just an antioxidant, you see: It’s also a potent circulation booster. Combined with other circulation-boosting herbs like ginger and ginkgo, it could be an extremely effective natural remedy for preventing diabetic neuropathy (degradation of the nerves) and retinopathy (degradation of the retina).”

    Isotonix OPC-3 is available online. It is not sold in health food stores. There are several OPC products which are available in health food stores, but Isotonix OPC-3 contains the isotonic-capable form of Pycnogenol on the market. This is significant because of the exceptional nutrient absorption which this product provides. Isotonix OPC-3 also contains a synergistic blend of several clinically validated plant bioflavonoids.
