What are the supplements for in MS?
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.
