MANILA, Philippines – Neuropathy or nerve damage potentially affects millions of people worldwide, every year. Early detection is key as under normal conditions, nerves repair naturally via regeneration. But after a certain time—when approximately 50% or more of nerve tissues are damaged—the nerve remains in a state of disrepair and any impairment becomes permanent. Experts call this stage the “point of no return.” 

Early detection and diagnosis of Neuropathy is vital. For this reason, Neurobion, the worldwide leader in B-vitamins and the nerve care expert from Merck Inc. Philippines, continues its nationwide advocacy, the Neuropathy Awareness Movement.
Each tablet provides an optimum balance formulation of vitamin B1, B6 and B12. Together they strengthen the nerves, improves the transmission of nerves impulses and regenerates the nerves. Each tablet taken 1x to 3x daily can help the person not to feel the symptoms.
The campaign highlights the importance of nerve health and is designed to help the millions of silent sufferers who are true heroes in their families to take an active role in keeping their nerves in tip-top state. Now on its 3rd year, this year’s campaign is called “Helping True Heroes.”
“True heroes are everyday people who push their own boundaries and go the extra mile for the benefit of others. At the heart of our campaign is raising awareness for nerve care and empowering these true Filipino heroes to keep on making ordinary acts, extraordinary with healthy nerves.” ~Debbie Go, Head of Marketing for Merck Consumer Health
Also present during the event and lending their voices to the Neuropathy Awareness Movement were singer-actress Zsa Zsa Padilla and actor-host Ryan Agoncillo. The two shared their experience with Neuropathy and urged people to care for their nerves the same way they would for other parts of their body. 
“I have been taking Neurobion for years now and it has done wonders to my nerves. I do not experience numbness in my hands which is a good thing because I love to cook for my family, and I also don’t experience cramps in my calves even after long hours of standing and performing on stage in high heels,” ~said Zsa Zsa Padilla

“One of my greatest joys in life is spending quality time with my three kids, and having healthy nerves enables me to do just that. I regularly exercise and eat healthy, but sometimes, I still experience symptoms of neuropathy. Before, I couldn’t play with them as much as I wanted to because of the tingling and burning sensations I felt in my feet after a bike ride or a long day at work. When I started taking Neurobion, these symptoms no longer bother me and now I can even chase my kids around the house." ~Ryan Agoncillo
