Supplements Help with Fatigue

For some time nutrition has been represented as not only being a possible causative factor in the development of MS, but also as being a possible and complementary treatment for the disease [1][2]. 

Fatigue in MS

A recent Italian Study [3] has now demonstrated that Vitamin supplementation can reduce Fatigue in RRMS by over 40%.

The study by the Scientific Research Institute in Milan, in conjunction with a number of other Research Institutes and Universities in Italy, Germany and Russia was published in MDPI on the 20th July 2021.

The observational study involved 50 patients, all women, with a Relapsing Remitting MS diagnosis and an EDSS of less than 6.0. Mean age was 40

25 patients were given a combination of two commercially available multivitamin dietary supplements. These supplements delivered a range of B vitamins, C and D, similar to our MS-Biotin Complex, over a period of 70 days.

The other 25 were given a placebo that looked and tasted the same. Blood samples were monitored for antioxidant and anti-inflammatory markers and Fatigue was measure using two psychometric tests. Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS) and Modifies Fatigue Impact Scale (MFIS).

The study reported that the administration of certain key nutrients as part of a nutritional treatment may have a beneficial effect on MS-associated fatigue and improve quality of life.

Vitamins Reduce Fatigue in MS

It is great to finally see some some solid research supporting what I have believed for years. Those of us with MS are genetically predisposed to it. Our poor modern diet, loaded with simple carbohydrates and intensively farmed and processed foods which are lacking in micronutrients trigger the disease. Diet modification can correct it, but typically only when the corrective diet is applied in an extreme way.  Supplements can help to rectify this situation.  We developed MS Biotin Complex to give MSer’s the vital vitamins that are lacking in our modern and often nutrient deficient diet to help their body perform better with MS.  This research confirms our belief that the right supplements can help.
