Nerve impulses associated with pinched nerves

Nerve Impulses associated with pinched nerves

Description

Nerve Impulses are the electrical activity in the Membrane of a Neuron that is the means by which information is transmitted within the Nervous System. Nerve Impulses originate in Dendrites, are integrated into the Soma (Cell Body of Neurons), and are transmitted down the Axon to the Synapse.With a pinched nerve the above is blocked.

These Substances Improve the Transmission of Nerve Impulses and aid in unblocking pinched nerves

Amino Acids

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) may improve nerve conduction velocity. references

Lipids

Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) may facilitate the transmission of Nerve Impulses. [more info]
Phosphatidylserine PS may facilitate the transmission of Nerve Impulses. references

Minerals

Calcium is involved in the transmission of Nerve Impulses.

Magnesium is required for the transmission of Nerve Impulses. references
Optimal Zinc levels are essential for the conduction of Nerve Impulses (due to Zinc’s role in the structure of Ion Channels). references

Smart Drugs

Vinpocetine and DMAE may increase the level of transmission of Nerve Impulses. [more info]

Vitamins

Choline is involved in the transmission of Nerve Impulses.
Inositol may improve Nerve Conduction Velocity in (diabetic) Neuropathy patients. [more info]
Vitamin B1 is involved in the conduction of Nerve Impulses. references
Vitamin B6 may improve the conduction of Nerve Impulses through the Nervous System. [more info]

These Herbs may Enhance the Transmission of Nerve Impulses

Ginkgo biloba may improve the transmission of Nerve Impulses. references

These Substances Interfere with the Transmission of Nerve Impulses

Metabolism

Hydroxyl Free Radicals disrupt and decrease the generation of Nerve Impulses in the Hippocampus of the Brain (probably by causing Oxidation of NMDA Receptors in the Hippocampus).

Steps in the Transmission of Nerve Impulses

1. Neurotransmitters are synthesized and stored in the Synaptic Vesicles of Neurons.
2. The Nerve Impulse is conducted down the Axon of the Neuron.
3. The Nerve Impulse arrives at the Presynaptic Terminal of the Axon.

4. Neurotransmitter molecules are released from the Synaptic Vesicles (this process is known as Exocytosis) into the Synapse when stimulated by the Nerve Impulse.
5. The Neurotransmitter diffuses across the Synapse.
6. The Neurotransmitter activates Receptors located on the Postsynaptic Membrane of Dendrites.
7. Activated Receptors cause a response in the Postsynaptic Membrane of the Dendrite.
8. Adaptive or plastic processes occur on the Presynaptic Membrane of the Axon and the Postsynaptic Membrane of the Dendrite in response to excessive (on Dendrites) or deficient (Axon) amounts of the Neurotransmitter.
9. The Neurotransmitter is released from the Receptors on the Postsynaptic Membrane of the Dendrite back into the Synapse.
10. Some of the Neurotransmitter molecules released from the Postsynaptic Membrane of the Dendrite are metabolized within the Synapse by extracellular enzymes.
11. Some of the Neurotransmitter molecules are re-absorbed (Reuptake) back into the intracellular fluid of the Axon Terminal.
12. The returned free Neurotransmitter molecules are re-absorbed (Reuptake) from the intracellular fluid of the Axon Terminal back into the Synaptic Vesicles.

13. The Axon Terminal is inhibited.

A simple regime to aid the nerves

Acetyl – L-Carnitine – 1 capsule twice a day
Vinpocetine – one tablet daily
DMAE – 2 tablets first thing in the morning
Life-oil - 1 capsule twice a day
Cal-Mag – 3 capsules twice a day
