There’s no doubt that every neuropathy sufferer starts out with a whole lot of questions, especially at the beginning of the overcoming neuropathy journey. The problem is, without the right answers, most neuropathy sufferers throw up their hands and just give up. Luckily for you, here are the top 3 Gamma-Linolenic Acid tips every neuropathy sufferer needs to know so you can live a life free of neuropathy.
On your journey to overcome neuropathy pain, you may have realized that nerve pain is difficult to treat. There are many reasons for this, one of which is that part of neuropathy pain is caused by nerve inflammation. Products containing ibuprofen or acetaminophen are excellent for reducing general inflammation, but they are not effective for nerve inflammation. Excitingly, Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) specifically helps reduce nerve inflammation. This fact is useful for you because you can start looking for supplements that contain GLA to alleviate your neuropathy pain.
You’ll also be glad to find out that GLA doesn’t just reduce nerve inflammation; it also helps repair damaged nerves. This is a unique feature of GLA that, as far as we know, no other supplement has. This means that GLA cannot only reduce your nerve pain through reduced inflammation, it may also help your nerves heal over time. The effects of long-term use of GLA include “increased nerve conduction velocity and blood flow to the nerve cells.”
That’s physician-speak for “your neuropathy could reverse.”
Warning – GLA Supplements
You should know that not all GLA is created equal. Most supplements that contain GLA only have it in tiny quantities – 30mg or less. Research has shown that GLA is most effective for neuropathy sufferers when between 400-600mg are ingested per day. The studies also detailed the minimum quality requirements for the GLA. That part is pretty technical, so we aren’t going to explain it all in this article. However, you should know that of the neuropathy supplements we’ve tested, only 1 supplement met or exceeded the minimum quality standards required by the researchers. That supplement was NutriNerve.
John had been taking ibuprofen and fish oil for years to help with the tingling in his feet. While he firmly believed that the fish oil was helping his neuropathy, he did have to admit that his neuropathy was getting worse. After two months on NutriNerve, John could feel a significant reduction in tingling and more feeling in his feet.
In other words, NutriNerve:
- Reduced his immediate pain by decreasing the nerve inflammation and…
- Supported the reversal of his neuropathy through natural nerve healing.
