METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study, in which 101 relapsing-remitting MS patients were enrolled. The ...
Vitamin D3 absorption increases with concurrent fat intake.
Effect of fat on serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels after a single oral dose of vitamin D in young healthy adults: a double-blind randomized placebo-controlled study. Eur J Nutr. 2014 May 23.
PURPOSE: This double-blind placebo-controlled trial evaluated serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels after the oral intake of a single dose of cholecalciferol during one of the three meals, containing different amounts of fat or placebo.
Is there any reason to think that it might be more effective than oral vitamin D3? My vitamin D3 levels were recently tested and found to be at 32 ng/mL. I'd like to bump that up to around 45 ng/mL. However, I've had problems with D3 interfering with magnesium causing leg and foot cramps at night. I wonder if the sublingual form ...
Just did my quarterly bulk shop of herbs & nutrients, and found out about the new form called Theracurmin. Anyone have any experience with it?
It appears they have improved the bioavailability by grinding it down to a smaller particle size. There is a cou0pld of published articles on it, but my guess is that a close relationship exists either with the manufacturer or the person who originally designed this version of curcumin. However, nothing ...
Medical-marijuana patients don’t always know what they’re getting
Testing shows that some marijuana strains are not what they purport to be in name, chemical content and genetics. This is particularly concerning for patients seeking pot low in intoxicants and high in pain-relief or other therapeutic qualities.
I propose a forum dedicated to vitamin B12 deficiency (starting with the definition from the book, Could It Be B12? An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses by authors Sally M. Pacholok, RN, BSN and Jeffrey J. Stuart, D.O. and the list of the signs and symptoms starting with, from the following article: "… peripheral neuropathy, the commonest neurological manifestation of vitamin B12 deficiency…"). The connection between MS and B12 was made long ago, as published in ...
When I had double vision it was caused by the root canals and amalgam fillings I had in my mouth. Once I had them removed the problem stopped. If you are interested in B12 you can get it from fermented foods and drinks. I get mine from sauerkraut and Kombucha tea. If you choose the supplements be aware of the other ingredients. It is best to get the vitamins and minerals from real organic fruits ...
did anyone manage to decrease or get rid completely of their light/heat sensitivity with some natural approach/diet tricks? Summer is almost there and I already feel worse in these conditions. LDN and vit E helps a lot, but does not solve all.
I saw my neurologist last Friday for my 6 month follow-up. She said I could take Baclofen for my stiff legs, but it could possibly weaken my legs too much that they would be like a rag doll. I do not want that to happen!
She never heard of magnesium supplements being beneficial for ms leg stiffness, but I would rather try something like that before taking baclofen. When I wake up from sleeping and ...
