Myelin Sheath Support product...any thoughts?

Hi guys,

I'm so happy to be here, and to already feel so welcomed. I will share more of the research I have done on my own as time goes on. I want to learn, and also help others who have chosen the natural route for healing/managing our MS. I was diagnosed in July of 2011, and the only "unnatural" thing I've done was the 12 to 16 day prednisone oral treatment, since my neurologist ...

I have an number of vitamins and mineral supplements magnesium stearate in them. Should I be concerned? Is there any information showing that magnesium stearate is safe? Are there supplements without these chemicals in them?

IV Glutathione

I just started seeing a holistic MD and she's trying to push the IV Glutathione. I haven't found any literature that would convince me it is particularly effective with MS, though here's some anecdotal stuff regarding Parkinson's. Never mind the price tag at over $100 per shot!! ouch.

I am just wondering if anyone has these kinds of reports or have access ...

So, I am just wondering what is so unique in this product.

The company states that Protandium increase the glutathion level ...
