As many as 70 percent of diabetics develop peripheral neuropathy, which can contribute to limb amputation due to loss of pain sensations in the feet and legs over time.

In order for nutrients contained in dietary supplements to effectively provide the important health benefits for which they are intended, it is critical that supplements are formulated with optimal absorption in mind. While this might appear obvious, the task can be easier said than done.

For example, it’s counterintuitive to patients to explain why their foot rolling inward can cause excessive outer heel wear.
