Mitochondria are the powerplants of the cell.  Thousands of mitochondria are located in each nerve cell.  They produce the energy necessary for nerve cells to work properly.  Vitamin B1 is essential for this process and LowB1 impairs mitochondrial function.  In the nerves of the feet and legs, impaired mitochondrial function causes numbness, tingling, burning, and/or shooting pains.  Restoring Vitamin B1 levels improves mitochondrial function and is believed to be directly responsible for decreasing these symptoms.  This is why supplying your mitochondria with adequate amounts of Vitamin B1 is an essential first step in trying to reverse numbness, tingling, burning, and/or shooting pains in your feet and legs.*
