Neuronal® is a dietetic food for special medical purposes (a supplement to accompany a balanced diet). It contains specific neurotropic ingredients. When nerves are damaged, there is an increased need for particular nutrients and nerve conduction blocks which improve the renewal processes of the damaged nerves. Neuronal® contains micronutrients, vitamins and minerals.
Pain resulting from damaged nerves in the spine is characteristic of lumbago, sciatica, hernia, post-intervertebral disc surgery, pain in the lower back, neck, arms and shoulders.
Neuronal® contains a unique combination of nucleotides, folic acid, cyanocobalamin, thiamine, niacin (nicotinamide) and pyridoxine.
Effects of Neuronal ingredients
Nerve injuries may occur due to physical injuries or a lack of the essential construction blocks of the nerve tissue. Due to this, the nerves are limited in their operation, sometimes even entirely inhibited. The newest findings regarding the effects of nucleotides with added vitamins (thiamine, niacin, pyridoxine, cyanocobalmin, folic acid) indicate a significant improvement in renewal processes of injured nerves, when there is pain originating from the spine.
In the case of nerve injuries, there may be an increased need for special nutrients or nerve conduction blocks:
Nucleotide is a nutrient which injured nerves require in large quantities for the renewal processes to take place. By supplementing nucleotides, the damaged nerve structures can be renewed quicker. It stimulates the growth of axons (or neurites – long extensions from nerve cells which are the primary conductors of the nervous system), stabilizes the nerve cell membranes and increases the production of acetylcholine.
Thiamine contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system. Supplies of this vitamin in the human body are relatively small, so regular intake must be ensured. Excess thiamine is secreted into the urine.
Niacin (nicotinamide) is one of the more important B vitamins. It contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system.
Pyridoxine must, like other B vitamins, be regularly consumed.
It contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system, immune system and a normal synthesis of cysteine.
Folic acid can not be synthesized by the human body, so it must be introduced via food. It plays a part in the process of cell division and contributes to the normal synthesis of amino acids.
Cyanocobalamin plays a part in the cell division process and contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system.
Neuronal® doesn’t contain salt, gluten, yeast, soya or milk products. It is free from preservatives. It has no known side effects.
Clinical Study Results
As early as 2003, a study showed giving specific nucleotides to patients with acute lumbago leads to accelerated pain reduction. This randomised (randomly selected patients), placebo controlled, double blind study was carried out in several medical institutions.
It involved 80 patients, aged 20 to 55 years old, who had a clinical diagnosis of untreated acute lumbago (lumbar back pain) (intensity of pain measured with VAS) which lasted for up to three days. The main target criterion of the study was a change in acute pain in movement due to the infusion of these specific nucleotides, in comparison with the initial pain value and control group.
It was identified with the aid of the visual analogue scale (VAS). As early as 24 hours after the first introduction of the specific nucleotides, the reduction in pain during movement was considerably greater in the group which was given the active ingredient compared to the placebo group.
Similar results were also shown in an open comparative- observational piece of research published in 2008, which looked at whether specific nucleotides, in combination with B vitamins, reduce pain intensity and increase the quality of life and general health of patients after intervertebral disc surgery (discectomy).
123 patients, aged 18 to 75 years old took part in this study. They were all experiencing painful limitation in movement and functioning after surgery. Along with the standard therapy, the patients received one capsule a day of the combined preparation, which contained specific nucleotides and B vitamins.
The patients in the control group received only standard treatment such as physiotherapy and physical therapy (heating, cooling, baths, massages, magnetic therapy). At the end of the observation period, the pain intensity in the test group was reduced by 91% and in the control group by 63%.
Furthermore, quality of life, which participants indicated at the start of the study as considerably limited (62,5 to 64 out of 78 points), was significantly improved by the therapy: the test group went down to 23 points and the control group to only 40 points. The general clinical impression was “significantly better” in 89% of patients who had received combined treatment, while the same was only true for 40% of the patients from the control group.
Opinion was united amongst both doctors and patients.

Neuronal® must be used under medical supervision and is not suitable as the only source of nutrition. The first effects of Neuronal® can normally be felt after a few days.
We recommend taking the full 20 capsules. If necessary, you can take Neuronal® again until you notice improvement.
Neuronal has no known side effects
