Nenion Study confirms Merck Neurobion's positive impact on Neuropathy

Do you sometimes experience numbness or tingling sensation in your toes? Do you exhibit Carpal Tunnel Syndrom (CTS) after spending prolonged hours on the computer? If yes, you might be suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy.

Love your Nerves

The body's nervous system is vital to our survival. This  major and complex system  consists of the brain , the spinal cord and the nerves, control and regulate all the vital operations allows us to perceive, comprehend, and respond to the world around us.  Nerves enable impulses sensation and motion between the brain, spinal cord and other parts of the body. 

The nervous system is a communication and controlling body system that coordinates voluntary actions like walking and involuntary actions like breathing and swallowing. 

Peripheral Neuropathy 101

Peripheral Neuropathy is a disorder that affects the nerves. It impairs their function of transmitting information. Peripheral Neuropathy causes body discomforts which may include tingling, increased or decreased sensitivity to vibration, hot or cold, numbness, muscle weakness and even burning pain. The feet and toes are commonly affected early in the course of a generalized neuropathy.

To some, Peripheral Neuropathy symptoms are less frequent, which may be misinterpreted or dismissed. Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy can seem innocuous but have an impact on the patients' well-being,  day-to-day activities and their quality of life. Early detection and treatment are crucial as well as effective treatment options, which relieve patients from their symptoms without having to suffer from significant side effects.

Causes and Risk Factors for  Peripheral Neuropathy  are multiple and include conditions such as:

Amyloidosis (metabolic disorder)
Autoimmune disorders (e.g., Guillain-Barre syndrome)
Bell's palsy
Carpal tunnel syndrome 
Chronic kidney failure
Connective tissue disease (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, sarcoidosis) 
Diabetes mellitus
Enviromental Toxins
Genetics (family member suffers from neuropathy)  
Infectious disease (e.g., HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B, leprosy) 
Liver failure
Nutritional deficiencies (e.g., Vitamin B deficiency)
Old age

Last week March 21,2018, Merck  initiated the NENOIN Symposium with Dr. Rizaldy Pinzon at the Marco Polo Hotel, Ortigas, Manila. New observational, non-interventional clinical study gives patients new-found hope and relief from their symptoms.

According to the study, Peripheral Neuropathy sufferers treated with a combination of three neurotropic B vitamins have experienced improvement on all neuropathy symptoms observed in the study independently from the cause of their neuropathy.  Research results is a giant leap for taking care of peripheral neuropathy sufferers.


A new clinical study (Asian Journal of Medical Sciences, lan 2018) has brought a major step forward for nerve health: it has demonstrated that an effective treatment helps relieve all neuropathy symptoms (observed in the study), regardless of the cause of peripheral neuropathy.

Whether the patients were suffering from numbness, pain or paraesthesia (usually painless sensation like tingling or itching, often felt in the arms and feet, they experienced relief on all these symptoms. It was also observed that the longer they used the treatment, the more relief the patients felt from these symptoms.

Finally it is also very reassuring to see that the Neuroblon Forte treatment has shown a good tolerance profile over the whole duration (3 months).  Neurotropic B vitamins combination has been proven effectively for peripheral neuropathy sufferers in relieving symptoms.The symptoms were even more reduced over longer duration of treatment.


Neurobion, the nerve care expert from Merck Consumer Health was first launched in the Philippines in July 1972 and is now the world's no. 1 in neurotropic B vitamins combination products.
