First up is Potassium. It plays a major role in making nerve impulses that help regulate your heartbeat, reflexes, and muscle contractions. It’s an important electrolyte that reduces swelling. So where can you find it? Dark leafy greens, spinach, broccoli, zucchini, tomatoes, bananas, citrus fruits, avocados, and prunes. Navy or pinto beans are excellent sources.
Next up is calcium. It helps brain cells form pathways to communicate with each other. It also helps pass nerve impulses to specialized cell receptors, and it plays a vital role in cell repair should a nerve cell become damaged. Some of the best sources include dark leafy greens and seaweed, beans and lentils which also contain magnesium and potassium, aged hard cheeses, and almonds.
And lastly, B vitamins, particularly vitamin B6 and B12. Vitamin B12 helps to regenerate nerves and inhibits pain signaling pathways. Vitamin B6 heals inflamed nerves. It strengthens and nourishes them while preventing further damage. The best sources include lean beef (preferably grass-fed), eggs, salmon, sweet potatoes, and chickpeas.
