I have read some on it; both here and few other places (Google it).

It is supposed to help muscle tonus.

I am starting Monday Dec.13 with 5g every 3 days. I wanted to have Pycnogenol in the same time (as they are also supposed to be a man boost) but the latest is not available right now.

Anyone tried and have comments?

Cheers and be well all :) ...

Question for Jimmylegs

Jimmylegs, would you know if any harm could come from eating Activia yogurt - they state Bifidus Regularis or Bifidus Actiregularis are "probiotics." I have had digestive problems with MS and lost 50 pounds since early 2007. Funny, it just clicked in that January 2007 is when I started Betaseron. I wonder if the stomach problems could be traced to that drug.

It's a no no but in the past couple of months I've gone ...

Has anyone used Systemic Enzymes?

I just read some interesting stuff on Systemic Enzymes and how they help MS patients in recovery after a relapse and in warding off symptoms all together. Has anyone here tried this approach? Does it work? Or is it all just BS? Thanks!

What I hear...

Hi. I'm new here to ThisIsMS, but I was diagnosed in 2005. Like many others my symptoms were years before my diagnosis.
