8 Vitamins and Nutrients for Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy, often referred to simply as neuropathy, is a painful and uncomfortable condition. Neuropathy combines symptoms ranging from feeling or sensation of weakness, numbness, and pain; it primarily affects the hands and feet but can impact other body parts. In many cases, neuropathy is painful and highly uncomfortable and results from damage to the nerves around the brain and spinal cord.

What can Help Alleviate Neuropathy?

Neuropathy may be a side effect of another illness or treatment, such as chemotherapy or radiation. As such, it’s prevalent in people with cancer, autoimmune disorders, and similar conditions. While medications and treatments can help with neuropathy, vitamins are another way to help manage the painful symptoms this condition causes.

B Vitamins 

If you’re experiencing severe neuropathy and debilitating pain, your system may lack sufficient B vitamins. B vitamins are a group of vitamins that help treat and prevent several health issues. They can also help reduce pain in people with neuropathy, repair nerve damage, and enhance your nervous system.

Glutathione is a powerful tool to help boost overall health and help treat neuropathy. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant, similar to vitamin C, that you can get through your diet or with vitamin supplementation. While it may combat neuropathy symptoms stemming from any condition, glutathione is beneficial for helping to treat neuropathy due to diabetes or chemotherapy.

Alpha Lipoic Acid 

Oxidative stress is a common phenomenon in which too many free radicals circulate throughout your body. These free radicals attack your cells and nerves and often cause nerve damage leading to neuropathy, especially for those with weakened immune systems or who have undergone chemotherapy.

Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant that helps combat invasive free radicals and eliminate oxidative stress. In addition to fighting oxidative stress, alpha lipoic acid helps improve circulation and physically repairs damaged nerves, making alpha lipoic acid one of the best supplements for combating neuropathy.

Acetyl-L Carnitine

Acetyl-L carnitine, similar to alpha lipoic acid in combating neuropathy, is an antioxidant and amino acid. In addition to fighting neuropathy and repairing nerve damage, acetyl-L carnitine also helps boost your immune system and energy levels. As such, it’s an excellent supplement for anyone with a weak immune system or struggling with neuropathy.

N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC)

N-Acetyl Cysteine, another potent amino acid, is an antioxidant often used by doctors to help treat neuropathy, nerve pain, and inflammation. A 2018 review1 suggested that NAC supplementation can counteract several neurodegenerative diseases as well as neuropathy.

Magnesium is essential because it promotes healthy nerves and helps your muscles function properly. While magnesium isn’t guaranteed to solve your neuropathy problems, it may help treat neuropathy caused by Type I and II diabetes.


Glutamine is the final entry on our list of antioxidants, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins that help fight neuropathy. Glutamine, another potent amino acid, may help combat neuropathy that stems from chemotherapy. This powerful and abundant amino acid can also help reduce muscle pain and inflammation that results from chemo.

Oral Supplements vs Vitamin IV Therapy for Neuropathy

IV infusions can ensure these components get into your system as quickly as possible to help treat your neuropathy.


Neuropathy is a severe and debilitating condition. While medications and traditional treatment options are essential, boosting vitamin and mineral uptake can also help manage symptoms. Many of the vitamins and minerals in this article can help ease neuropathy symptoms and support the repair of nerve damage. Therefore, investing in IV therapy may be worthwhile if you’re living with neuropathy.
