Nutrient Daily Amount…

DRUGS are the mainstay of treatment for MS. However, there are a few nutrients that may prove helpful. Here’s what some doctors recommend…

Selenium 100 micrograms

Vitamin B12 500 micrograms

Vitamin C 1,000­2,000 milligrams, taken as 2­4 divided doses

Vitamin E 800 international units

Plus a multivitamin/mineral supplement containing the Daily Values of all essential vitamins and minerals

 

MEDICAL ALERT: If you have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, you should be under a doctor’s care.

Injections of vitamin B12 are required for people who have problems absorbing this nutrient.

Vitamin C in doses exceeding 1,200 milligrams a day can cause diarrhea in some people.

It’s a good idea to check with your doctor before taking more than 600 international units of vitamin E a day. If you are taking anticoagulant drugs, you should not take vitamin E supplements.
