do you have wheat germ or wheat germ oil, sunflower seeds/oil and almonds in your diet? important sources of vitamin E. vit E is a big part of this old school protocol for MS by klenner. the vit E in your multi will not be a very healthy form, likely just one of the E8 complex, so ensuring you compensate with lots of vit E foods with the proper natural ratio of tocopherols and tocotrienols would be important.
from what you've described your zinc status won't be as bad as some others that eat bread pasta etc often. a blood test would be good there. if you do supplement zinc ensure it is balanced with copper. you can find products that have both in one. how much zinc and copper do you get in your multi? oh wait i'll go check it myself hang on
jimmylegs wrote:the form of magnesium in the multi is one of the inorganic difficult to absorb ones. what is the form and dose of your non-multi magnesium product?
that amount of potassium (100mg) is so low you wonder why they bother - you need 3500-4200 mg a day depending which health authority you ask.
also the form of selenium in the multi is not the most bioavailable (selenomethionine is supposed to be good)

jimmylegs wrote:good tip, NHE. also sunflower's an omega 6 oil not omega 3 so do ensure it's balanced with other fatty acids in the right ratio
jimmylegs wrote:definitely flax is a great one for O3. i don't think it contains meaningful amounts of vit E though. such a balancing act!
