Creatine plus CoQ10 for neuroprotection?

I found this article browsing. It doesn't study MS directly, but suggests that Creatine plus Coenzyme Q 10 give better neuroprotection in Parkinsons and Huntingdons than either do alone. I use both. I stumbled on the article while looking at Glutathione and thought I'd share.

Does anyone else use these?

Here is the abstract plus intro.

Lyndacarol has previously posted on fucoxanthin's metabolic influence but I didn't see anything here about its immunomodulating effects. Looks like it might be good for pwms. Has anyone tried it?

Tumors need massive amounts of nutrients to grow and spread, so they send out signals to the local area that encourage blood vessel growth that supply food to the growing tumor. ...

ms and massage

Hello everyone!

I have a big favor to ask- I'm a massage therapist student in a small town in North Carolina. I have to do a project on the effects of massage on MS, and I was wondering if I could ask y'all some questions about it if you've recieved massages post-diagnosis. I do not have ms and i don't intend to annoy or insult anyone, and I apologize if I ever do that!

Thanks!
