The nervous system is an essential part of the human body, enabling you to go about your daily activities. As you age, it is not uncommon to experience discomfort and pain caused by the nerves that make up the nervous system. This discomfort may be due to alterations in the structure of your nervous system, resulting in a weakening of the signals emitted by the nerves and a deterioration of the myelin, the membrane covering the nerve fibres.

The structure of the nervous system

The nervous system as a whole is responsible for the voluntary actions you take every day, such as walking. It also plays a role in involuntary actions you have no control over, such as breathing or digestion. Thanks to the nerves, the nervous system enables you to react to the world around you and decode all the information coming from the different parts of your body. Neurons are the nerve cells that make up the tissue of the nervous system. They are responsible for transmitting chemical and electrical messages to your body.

The peripheral nervous system is made up of several million nerves, commonly referred to as peripheral nerves. You can compare them to interconnected electrical wires that link your brain to different parts of your body. The nerve fibres are protected by a membrane, the myelin sheath, which insulates the nerves.

Nerves are in constant use, helping you to perceive your environment. They enable the transmission of electrical impulses within the body, establishing communication between your brain and the extremities of your limbs, such as your hands (fingers) and feet (toes). For example, if your hands touch something hot, the nerves inside your fingers transmit the message to your brain, which decodes the sensation of heat and makes you remove your hands from the heat source to avoid burning yourself. 

Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy causes symptoms that result from damage to the nerves of the peripheral nervous system. It can cause, among other things: 

  • A sensation of numbness, tingling or burning
  • Weaknesses that hamper day-to-day activities
  • Muscle cramps
  • Pain resembling acute throbbing

Fortunately, there are solutions to relieve these symptoms.


Nervive is a range of products designed to relieve the discomfort and pain of peripheral neuropathy. As dietary supplements composed of natural vitamins, Nervive can represent an effective solution for the care and treatment of nerve-related problems1.

That's why three different formulations have been developed to contribute to nerve health. Each of these products focuses on specific functions.

The Nervive Nerve Health formula can contribute to the formation of the myelin sheath3. The myelin sheath fosters good blood circulation and improves communication between the nerves, nourishing and protecting them. Nervive Nerve Relief may play a role in relieving pain and discomfort caused by the aging of the nervous system, as well as protecting nerves4. Nervive Nerve Relief PM, in addition to providing all the benefits of discomfort relief, contains melatonin, which can help you fall asleep5.

If you have symptoms or questions related to peripheral neuropathy, don't hesitate to ask your healthcare professional for advice. They will be able to answer your questions and direct you to the right product for your needs.
