Against Neuropathies

Properties and actions:

Alpha-lipoic acid is a very unstable molecule that has tendency to polymerize on exposure to heat, light and moisture, turning into a sticky and ineffective product.
Neuropatex through its unique “self emulsifying Drug Delivery system” (SEDDS) ensures maximum stability, bio-availability and maximum effectiveness of alpha lipoic acid.
Neuropatex prevents the oxidative damage and reduces oxidative stress which is the main contributing factor in diabetic neuropathy through its potent antioxidant effect in both oxidized and reduced forms.
Neuropatex regenerates endogenous antioxidant’s activity of both vitamin C and E and enhances intracellular levels of glutathione and coenzyme Q-10 which are impaired and consumed in diabetic patients.
Neuropatex improves endoneurial perfusion through improvement of nitric oxide (NO) mediated vasodilatation, thus enhances the microcirculation and helps in peripheral nerve regeneration. Neuropatex improves microcirculation so decreases the risk of vascular complications especially retinopathy, nephropathy and cardiovascular complications and also has proven efficacy in treatment of different forms of autonomic neuropathy. Neuropatex is effective in different diseases associated with lowered antioxidant status and/or increased levels of oxidative stress as in neurodegenerative disorders.
