How it works
Pevesca Plus Capsule is a combination of Alpha Lipoic Acid, Folic Acid, Methylcobalamin, Pregabalin and Pyridoxine. Alpha lipoic acid works by slowing down nerve damage and reducing symptoms like pain, tingling, and pricking in the feet and legs. Folic acid and Pyridoxine are essential for the production of certain vital components that are necessary to maintain normal body functions. Methylcobalamin helps in the production of myelin (a substance that protects the nerve fibres) and helps to heal the damaged nerve cells. Pregabalin acts by reducing certain chemical substances in the brain and interfering with the pain signals travelling through the damaged nerves and the brain. Thus, it relieves pain due to nerve damage.
