Properties:

Milga tablets combines three components that together have a potent effect on the remedy of inflammatory and degenerative diseases of nerves and loco motor organs, also Milga aids in the alleviation of associated pain on account of its analgesic, antiallergic and circulation-promoting properties.
Benfotiamine is a lipid-soluble form of thiamine (vitamin B-1), it is also designated as antineuritic vitamin. In its phosphorylated form (TPP) as carboxylase, it regulates the breakdown of carbohydrates and is used against acidotic metabolic disturbances. Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6)  regulates protein, fat and carbohydrate breakdown. Its neurotropic effect is used, for example, in isonicotinic acid hydrazide therapy for the avoidance of neuritides. Its effects on the brain stem attenuate extrapyramidal symptoms.

Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) is essential for cell metabolism, normal blood formation and functioning of the nervous system.
