Have you ever experienced numbness or loss of sensation (pamamanhid), muscle weakness (pangangalay), tingling/pins and needles (tusok-tusok), burning sensation (Pag-iinit), and muscle cramps (pamumulikat) more often felt in the morning? If so, you might be Vitamin B deficient or you are having signs and symptoms of Neuropathy.
NEUROPATHY or nerve damage affects millions of people worlwide, every year. Early detection is key as under normal conditions, nerves repair naturally via regeneration. But after a certain time --- when approximately 50% or more of nerve tissues are damaged --- the nerve remains in a state of disrepair and any impairment becomes permanent. Experts call this stage the "point of no return".
After I had a major operation 2 years ago, I've been complaining about muscle weakness, numbness of hands and feet and leg cramps that hampers my daily routine. So I went to my Neurologist to update him of my current condition. He told me that I might be Vitamin B deficient and was asked to take Vitamin B, specifically Neurobion. From then on, Neurobion has been my best bud to ease and normalize my everyday life and routine. Haven't felt those symptoms for months now. Thanks to Neurobion!
Early detection and diagnosis of Neuropathy is vital. For this reason, Neurobion, the worldwide leader B-vitamins and the nerve care expert from Merck Inc. Philippines, continues its nationwide advocacy, the Neuropathy Awareness Movement. Now on its 3rd year, this year's campaign is called " Helping True Heroes". The campaign highlights the importance of nerve health and is designed to help millions of silent sufferers who are true heroes in their families to take an active role in keeping their nerves in tip-top state.

Vitamin B6 or pyridoxine not only converts sugar into energy but protein as well and, at the same time, makes new nerves, while
vitamin B12 or cobalamin is important for metabolism and in the formation of red blood cells and maintenance of the central nervous system.
