re the multi, i was going to say it's probably marginally better than nothing. but looking at product details, maybe not really :S

one a day: http://labeling.bayercare.com/omr/onlin ... ential.pdf
i particularly dislike their form of vit E.

this is the one i take, for comparison: http://www.aor.ca/wp-content/uploads/20 ... sics-3.pdf

as for your d3 history. i'd say you definitely need to take a long hard look at your mag status! you'd probably be just fine on 1000 IU of d3 per day while you assess your dietary mag intake and any complementary supplemental requirements.

re timing of d3 megadosing and spasticity, there are many variables to consider lynn, and although i personally had mag depletion issues prior to vit d3 supplementation, i definitely had an array of mag related issues worsen and develop after!

Where do you get your multivitamin? Is it taken 3 times/day?!
Do you take any vitamin d supplements?
What about alpha lipoic acid?

Regarding lipoic acid, you might want to consider the R-lipoic form.

Look for stabilized forms know as sodium r-lipoate.

hi lynn :)

i get my multi at a local specialty store where they sell a lot of higher end supplements, plus organic toiletries/cosmetics/groceries etc. three times daily yes. i put out a little dish for each day and whenever i have food or drink i try to also take one or two supplement pills.

most of my regular vit d3 is in my multi at this stage, plus whatever i get in food (eg mushrooms etc). i have a very high potency liquid also, i put it in a needle to dose out a really small single drop of about 5000IU. i dont use it as much as i used to. i have a lab requisition for blood work soon, to check if i need to take it more frequently.

i personally don't take ala.. since it can, my body has to make its own :D

Recipe for Magnesium/Bicarbonate Water
This is a form of magnesium that is highly absorbable.

This recipe allows one to easily make the water, instead of paying high prices for bottled mineral water.

As I write this message, the 3 topics at the top of the TiMS active topics page are as follows: Bladder spasms, Walking and Spasticity, and Spasticity. It seems some relaxation is needed. So, how about:
