Magnesium Oil for Muscle Spasms

What I do is keep a small spray bottle of magnesium oil by my bed and when I first wake up and the leg spasms are starting I rub the "oil" into my forearm. I feel the leg muscles relaxing in seconds.

Zinc/copper balance

Hi everyone,

I was taking a zinc supplement for some time until I noticed that my copper levels were getting on the low side. The zinc supplement was 15mg zinc picolinate daily, and I started adding 2mg copper picolinate daily, which I thought was the recommended amount for the 15mg zinc.

After I started doing this, my copper went up a little again (from 75 mcg/dL to somewhere in the 80's), but unfortunately my zinc ...

Hello everyone,

I feel like this is a silly question. A lady at my work today has started selling natural oils. She gave me a web site to go to that told me what "oils" would be good for MS. On her website a bottle of Frankincense oil is almost $100. So I looked on and found the same types of oils on this website much cheaper. Has anyone here tried oils like peppermint, ...

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.
