  • Editorial Office


Neurotropic B vitamins are a combination of vitamins that play an important role in the health of the nervous system; they nourish and help regenerate nerves. These vitamins, thiamine (B1), pyridoxine (B6), and cobalamin (B12), are naturally obtained by eating meat, eggs, and grains.1,2 Because of the unique roles each of the neurotropic vitamins play in the health of the nervous system, all of them are essential, and a combination of all three may be needed to treat deficiencies. In an animal model, a combination of neurotropic B vitamins was found to be more effective at alleviating symptoms of neuropathy than B1, B6, or B12 given alone.10
