Nervia Now Available at Life Extension

Mar 8
Posted by admin Filed in Marine Phytoplankton

Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. (PRWEB) March 05, 2015

Life Extension® announced today that they now carry Nervia®, a natural supplement manufactured by Kage Apothecare LLC, for supporting nerve health.

Nervia, a new, patented, purely vegetarian, softgel supplement, has been the subject of multiple studies conducted by the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mt. Sinai and at the University of Hawaii, School of Pharmacy. Nervia is composed of nutrients, organic medicinal oils and botanicals needed to maintain nerve cell health and neutralize the oxidative stress and inflammation thought to affect peripheral nerve cells.

“This novel formula is now available for the scores of men and women who have found no adequate method of protecting their nerve cell health and takes a more targeted and scientifically valid approach to maintaining cellular health,” said Bob Thompson, director of retail operations for Life Extension.

“Nervia is a patented and clinically tested formula that was shown to work in multiple ways to completely block key inflammatory cytokines (proteins important in cell signaling) and other cellular messengers responsible for different types of oxidative stress and inflammation,” said Michael Sugerman, CEO and founder of Kage Apothecare.

“Inflammation from oxidative stress creates an unhealthy environment for nerve cells,” Sugerman said. “Excessive production of free radicals diminishes cells’ natural antioxidant defense.” Sugerman added, “Nervia’s patented action helps maintain the already normal feeling you have in your feet and hands by acting on not just one, but on a variety of pathways simultaneously.”

For more information or to purchase Nervia go to A free lecture featuring Michael Sugerman, founder of Kage Apothecare and developer of Nervia®, takes place Thursday, March 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the Life Extension Nutrition Center, 5990 North Federal Highway in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

A webcast interview link with Michael Sugerman talking about nerve health is available on RadioMD.
