Carpal tunnel syndrome
Some causative factors
- Vitamin B2 deficiency
- Vitamin B6 deficiency.
Promising nutritional research
Measurements of red blood cell enzymes in a carpal tunnel syndrome sufferer revealed severe deficiencies of both vitamin B6 and vitamin B2. Combined supplementation of these nutrients brought the total disappearance of the carpal tunnel syndrome.
