This formula was created to address poor circulation, the cause of most numbness. Remember how your arm or leg feels when you fall asleep in a bad position that cuts off blood flow. That is the same feeling that people experience when suffering from diabetic neuropathy or numbness related to carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal Tunnel can cause some of the same symptoms as diabetic neuropathy, described below, due to poor circulation.
Nerve damage that occurs in people with diabetes is called diabetic neuropathy. About half of people with diabetes develop nerve damage. Symptoms often develop slowly over many years. The types of symptoms you have depend on the nerves that are affected. When nerves in the arms and legs are affected, symptoms often start in the toes and feet, and include tingling or burning, or deep aching pain. Another symptom of neuropathy is called a “Stinger”. This is when your skin, usually somewhere on the legs, feels similar to someone sticking you with a straight pin. This will usually cause the muscle to jump or spasm and it is very annoying and uncomfortable.
As the damage gets worse, you will likely lose feeling in your arms and legs. Because of this, you may:
The phytonutrients in this formula do not work by physically heating the skin, like “sports creams” do. Instead, the ingredients in this formula actually dilate blood vessels, veins and capillaries to vastly increase the flow of fresh, oxygen rich, healing, restorative, blood to the extremities, thus eliminating the numbness.
It can also be used as a preventative to stop numbness from occurring by increasing the blood flow to the extremities.
Slow healing is common with diabetics and it is generally due to a lack of blood to the extremities. Diabetics have to be very aware of any cuts or sores, especially on feet or legs. When circulation is increased, the oxygen and nutrient filled blood generates quicker healing and stops the irritating numbness associated with slow blood flow or overall lack of blood.
