Here are some vitamin supplements you may want to consider taking in general. Multiple Sclerosis is a very individual illness so each person will differ in nutritional deficiencies. There is no substitute for having a personal consultation with a fully trained Nutitionalist or Health Practitioner.

Susie Cornell can help you here. She runs a specialist clinic that uses complementary techniques to treat MS.

Why take supplements?

They help you to:

  • Absorb nutrients from food.
  • Heal a leaky gut.
  • Strengthen the immune system, reduce
  • Inflammation.
  • Strengthen the blood brain barrier.
  • Improve nerve signals.
  • Reduce fatigue and give you more energy.

What are the supplements for in MS?

  1. The 3 Essential: Vitamin D, Calcium, and Magnesium

    • Vitamin D 4000 iu/day - Vitamin D could help reduce relapses and slow progression in MS, especially in northern latitudes where there is less sunlight.

    • Calcium 800mg/day - Vitamin D must be taken with both Calcium and Magnesium in approx equal amounts.

    • Magnesium 800 mg/day - Almost every metabolic system is dependant on magnesium. Helps produce cellular energy, needed for nerve impulse transmission. Also helps metabolise the B vitamins and essential fatty acids. A magnesium deficiency is a common finding in MS. Spasticity can often be traced to low levels of magnesium. This deficiency may be caused by a diet high in refined and processed foods and saturated fat, by bran added to the diet or diuretics.
