High-dose vitamin D supplementation may help treat multiple sclerosis

Posted on: January 3, 2016   by  Vitamin D Council


A recent study found high-dose vitamin D supplementation may help reduce the immune system’s hyperactivity in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). The researchers compared the effects of daily supplementation of 10,800 IU to 800 IU. They found that high doses were not only safe, but also effective in reducing the proportion of a specific type of immune system cell that is involved in the MS disease process.

Many different news sources are covering this exciting research advancement, including U.S. News & World Report and Newsweek.

    http://www.biotechpharmacal.com makes Vitamin D3 in 5,000IU, 10,000IU & 50,000IU

    They are tiny, soft capsules that are very easy to swallow. If you don’t like capsules, cut them open and dissolve the powder in water.

    You can buy them here:

    There is a school of thought that states that powdered vitamin D is better absorbed if dissolved in a spoonful of healthy fat–such as organic butter, or organic olive oil, or organic coconut oil.

    My cousin’s husband with long term MS in the UK has just been told by his specialist that they now recommend sufferers taking 5000 IU daily of D3.
    The NHS must be desperate! The horses have bolted.
