SUPPLEMENTS THAT CAN HELP REDUCE
THE SYMPTOMS ASSOCIATED WITH MS
ALPHA LIPOIC ACID – 200mg, four times daily
Alpha Lipoic Acid is found in almost all foods, but slightly more so in kidney, liver, spinach, and broccoli. Studies of aging rats have suggested that the use of alpha lipoic acid may help in delaying the structural decay of the mitochondrial decay. The mitochondria are sometimes described as “cellular power plants” because they generate most of the cell’s supply of chemical energy.
GLUTATHIONE – 600mg, once daily
Glutathione also helps to keep the power plant of the cell healthy. Among other things, it detoxifies a by-product of cell metabolism. The by-product is called methylglyoxal.
MAGNESIUM – 400mg, once daily
There is a good chance that calcium inside a cell is part of the problem in MS. Magnesium helps to keep the calcium in check.
CATALASE – 3000 Baker Units (BUs), once daily
Part of the problem in MS is the constant struggle of the cells to create the proper balance (homeostasis). In doing so on a continuous basis, another by-product produced is hydrogen peroxide. This product is harmful to the cell. Catalase neutralizes it.
CAPSAICIN – 2mg, twice daily
Capsaicin is one of the main substances in chili peppers. After a period of time, the intake of capsaicin depletes the nerve cell of a substance that causes the cell to transmit the sensation of pain. The pain then becomes less.
