Folcure-5 Tablet is a dietary supplement used in diabetic peripheral neuropathy (nerve pain due to high blood sugar levels). It contains methylcobalamin, L-methylfolate calcium, and pyridoxal 5 phosphate as active ingredients that help protect nerve cells and promote optimum health.
Methylcobalamin enhances synthesis of proteins in nerve cells and promotes the formation of protective layer (myelin) of nerve cells. L-methylfolate is a coenzyme essential for many cellular functions like metabolism of amino acids, DNA and RNA synthesis, and the synthesis and growth of all cells.
