Nevrolek is a complex of B vitamins for the treatment of neurological diseases. Its action is due to the properties of the vitamins present in its composition: pyridoxine (vitamin B6), thiamine (vitamin B1), cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12). Also contains an anesthetic agent (lidocaine) for painless administration. Thiamine hydrochloride is a water-soluble form of vitamin B1, which takes part in conducting nerve impulses, providing axonal transport, and contributing to the restoration of nerve tissue. In high concentrations, it has an analgesic effect on pain associated with nerve damage. Pyridoxine (B6) is involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, fats. It is necessary for the normal process of hematopoiesis, as well as optimal functioning of the central and peripheral parts of the nervous system. This vitamin ensures normal transmission between synapses, inhibition processes in the central nervous system, participates in the transport of sphingosine – a substance that is part of the nerve sheath, participates in the production of catecholamines (norepinephrine, dopamine, adrenaline). Cyanocobalamin (B12) is the most important factor in hematopoiesis, development of epithelial cells, normal growth, and is involved in the production of nucleotides. This vitamin is essential for the production of myelin, folic acid metabolism.
